I would love to have it installed on my old Dell that I use on a daily basis but unfortunately niether the wireless or Lan are supported just now and I havent found any mini pci cards that have a supported chipset as yet.
Rediscovered that Amiga companionship :)

Hey guys!

I've just bought a PC from my sister and I installed ICAROS v 1.3.3 as the only OS on the hdd. I must say I am loving it, and it works great! - This happens to be the only PC in my apartment, so there is no M$ Windows. :-D - (I never liked M$ from day one as a child...) anywho, those who haven't tried AROS, you should!


Any word on running old Amiga programs?  I heard they got integration down pretty good.

OS3 applications running on the Wanderer desktop, works quite nicely and uses the Aros menus and window decorations.

I've always hated that clown picture. :) The AROS system looks good. Weird to see the dual resize widgets. Can you resize using the OS3.x resize widget in the window too?

Well, I guess I'll have another try at this.

Thanks for the encouragement guys (but my wife's gonna kill me, I can hear it now "What! Another computer!").

Purchased Nvidia 6150SE based motherboard, Nvidia video card, and SBLive card.

@ AmigaFreak

I'm really enjoying AspireOS on my Samung netbook.  I would struggle without dual booting with Windows though as I need AutoCad on my netbook for my work.
