Interrested in AROS
« on: May 06, 2004, 05:33:09 PM »
Hello,

I am discovering the Amiga, and would like to have AROS to. What would you advise? Nightly build or Snapshot? Where can I download software for AROS? And where can I download Themes (if they are there)? Is there a web browser?
Having an Amiga 500 and enjoying it :-D  :-D  :-D

If you download the nighly build of the "Live CD" it comes with most of the currently available software for AROS (most of it is Amiga Ports).

There is no web browser at this time.

There are no themes at this time either.

I always recommend the Nightly build.

Just light a match or use a zippo and hold the cd in the flame.

But seriously, I think there is also a disk version. Might be old or maybe new. Bloodline can tell you all about.

Check it out - I found the ass-end!

I know there is a floppy version, but that one hasn't got the software with it :-)

Then find a friend you can :-)

Or you could buy a Black Troll computer, they have AROS preinstalled.

Or you can use an online service that will burn the CD for you and send it to you like Call A CD
Trust me...                                              I know what I\'m doing
