Once the Amiga part is going, I don't really care what hardware it is running on.

That's fine, some do some don't.

I run both classic hardware and other OS/Software/hardware solutions, mainly as a hobby and it's something I enjoy, truth be told I spend more time on classic hardware but I still try/use most other things.

Ok, can someone tell me if Aros 68k will be able to work with Amithlon.
I understand that Amithlon had a special version of Amiga OS.
Thanks.

I have a nice little amithlon system that is dated but runs it quite nicely. The only disadvantage is that when I insert any more than 1GB of RAM into the machine it fails to boot Amithlon.

I *really* like Amithlon. It somehow feels like a more stable and more of a true Amiga than AROS or when compared to other types of emulation. Something about it is really nice.

Honestly I doubt people will do it because the Amiga community IP owners are all a bit childish about their projects even long after they've stopped earning income, but open sourcing Amithlon would be such an awesome step forward.

Make sure you guys get the updated kernels, which offer more ram (up to 3 gigs, if I remember correctly.) and newer drivers. I can dig up the links, if you need them. Keep in mind, though, that the newer drivers don't allow you to make bootable CDs.

A thing worth looking into is reimplementing Amithlon only with AROS/m68k, like AROS hosted, only with a m68k emulation layer. Arosthlon? :)

There is a commercial version of AROS in the works. Why not wait for that before doing something with AROS68k?

Are the updated kernels easily found in an obvious place?  

I thought there were a few, or maybe just 1, web pages that tied all of the latest updates together for folks who still want to try Amithlon.

It can't hurt to share what you have. :)

Just a short question from me. On Aros 68k I can integrate almost every amiga library and they work because it runs in some sort of UAE or real hardware. Amithlon can only use special libraries that are reimplementing the 68k libraries or can you mix both Amithlon and 68k libraries like on AmigaOS/MorphOS or Aros 68k?

You can mix and match.

Does it sound possible even without getting some permissions?
edit:
It would be cool if the commercial side was either open sourced or licensed .

What do you mean "commercial version of AROS"? A commercial distro of AROS?

ARIX is not Amithlon except they would implement something like that exists on AmigaOS or MorphOS on X86

No recent news on ARIX. They might be hush hush because they are going to sell it. Can anyone give us an update?
