Well, AROS has always worked on the Athlon64... but that's due to the fact that it can run in 32bit mode, rather than AROS running in 64bit mode :-D

Not yet.  Making AROS kernel modular is a huge perk, IMO.  This means that VESA driver can be loaded (or not) via GRUB which means AROS_64 can use a standard GRUB instead of the current custom GRUB.  This is not the only suprise Michal has instore for us.  :-D
