If i get a job, i prmoise i'll put $100 dollars in. But is there other ways besides Pay Pal?

Also, thats 100 Australian dollars sorry :) but luckily for you the Oz dollar ant going to bad these days so that'll be around 70 dollars for you, rather than 40-50 dollars less than a year ago :)

Infact, if i get a good job, that pays in excess of 40 thousand a year, i'll give you 200 Australian dollars (140 US or there abouts)

Theres been huge advancements on AROS latly, all contributing to a usable OS and development platform. Wanderer and GCC come to mind. But something like a TCP ip stack gives us the possibility of having a working browser, icq, im client, server software smb/nfs/http/media/ lots of other usful software that will give AROS a userbase.

I'd just do it if was a good programmer, no matter what the bounty cause i have no job + heaps of time on my hands. But im not a fantastic programmer :(. But i am planning a port. Im looking at the source atm and trying to decide how to go about it! Maybe if i complete this port, in a year or two and AROS still hasnt got a TCP/IP stack i'll do it for ya :)

You know what would be fantastic? A web interface to compile you'r own aros so that you can get better screen sizes or something, because this is a compile time option atm right? Although the native one seems to detect it and do the right thing...

In AROS hosted I think you can specify the screen size in the command line... I could be wrong actually... :-)
