ABOUT AROS, www.aros.org
Do you remember the good old Amiga times? Computing was funny and almost never a pain. AmigaOS was really easy to understand and, thanks to its elegance and optimisation, could run excellent applications on low-spec machines, without wasting hardware resources. But it was ages ago. The AROS Research Operating System tries to port al the good things of AmigaOS on other platforms, being an open-source re-implementation (rewritten from scratch) of Amiga API and environment.

I dont remember it as being 'Ha-ha' funny but it was ironic, as I recall...
