Tested once, will try again sometime in the future.

It seems to be good, keep up the good work.

I tried it for first time a few days ago... Used the live aros cd, booted like a charm, was also pretty responsive  :-)
But not much useful applications on it yet, so pretty unusable for me at the moment  :-(

But it looks very promising! Just need some more software,  a tcp/ip stack and we are all set  ;-)

Tried the floppy version a long time ago, booted fine, but wasn't very usable (I'm not a developer).
Tried the ISO a couple of months ago, but wouldn't boot at all  :-(

I have only tried the floppydisk version, I haven´t got a CD-burner yet and I don´t have a proper linux-installation yet.
Apple did it right the first time, bring back the Newton!

I tried the one Matt Parsons has on his site from May and it booted fine, had fun with it.  The latest builds from the website will not boot for me.  I am using an AMDXP 2500+.  Anyone else have this problem with the latest builds?

Tried, loved it, want it. It's getting to the point that I'm passing out floppies to people who are interested in alternative OSs.   And of course, formed TeamAROS to help out the devs with financial incentives.

Tried it, and it worked fine until it hit some misconfigured demo app, when it froze solid.  Very Amiga-like.  ;-)

It's looking good, but has a very long way to go before it becomes remotely useful to anyone.
