Is AROS really worth using ? Or is it still only at 'curiousity' level ?

I'm particularly interested in the Native Version...

Hmm, good question... I find it useful, as I can boot a machine up at work (takes about 20seconds) and then play games. Then I can reboot and go back in the stinky WinNT4 (which is locked so than nothing can be installed, though this is not too dificult to get around  :-D ).

But most of you will probably find it a curiousity, at least until we get a TCP/IP stack for Internet/networking.

I think it's quite pretty to look at too. so I often just leave it running on my machine when people come around, and get a few bemused looks from them (many of whome had an Amiga many years ago).


Correct me if im wrong, but, the new TCP/IP stack done for AmigaO4 i think was done by Olaf Barthel and was done by porting the original BSD sources...

If you'r looking for easily portable stack source, maybe that would be a good place to start?

If it compiles for AmigaOS4, there could be a good change of it compiling under AROS without modification, but you'd prolly know more about that then me :).

I believe that AmiTCP has now been chosen as the basis... I'm not sure as I don't get involved with such matters regarding TCP/IP.
 But work has begun of finanly getting it to work.

from my experience with AROS the new screenshots are frustrating.  I've burned 2 CDs with different nightly builds, and it won't complete boot.  in one it froze to CLI, in another it froze on black screen.  I've downloaded 4 different nightly build floppy images, and they keep untaring on workbench screen over and over...

the only version i was able to boot was the latest snapshot floppy which is WAY TOO OLD for the amount of progress you've made.   so my question:
When can I expect a new (tested and solid) snapshot?
