YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!

The best OS is now running natively on the Pi!!! I hope we have some software running smothly on it!!! (Giana's Return with music...drool)

This will be the cheapest Next-Gen Amiga available today.  Hope it attains the use-ability of the x86 version which is really coming along nicely.

A500 - 170 MB HD, 8 MB RAM, OS 1.3/2.04
A2000 - 350 MB HD, 8 MB RAM, A2630, OS 2.04
A2500 - 540 MB HD, 8 MB RAM, A2630, OS 3.9
A1200 - 20 GB HD, 64 MB RAM, Blizzard IV
Amithlon - 49 GB HD, 768 MB RAM, PIII-1G
AROS - 80 GB HD, 2 GB RAM, P4-3.2GHz

Great news! Where are the boot images available from?

Just a few would likes:

- Considering making Aminet an "app store"
- Ensure a 68K emulator is integrated so the binaries and adfs run natively without setup.
- Ensure PI CPU clock scaling and memory divide settings are available.
- Change the ample character logo, imho it doesn't look very professional...

A hop skip and a jump from this would allow someone to box and sell a theme'd pi case, keyboard, usb hub and mouse case and give it some brand recognition...

I've been lurking and now I'll try AROS out tonight for the first time :)

Could this mean aros will be available on other more powerfull arm hardware ? TV-sticks are double the power of raspberry and about the same price. A9 cpu 1,6mhz dual core 1gb android stick is available for around 50usd.

The problem with ARM hardware is its being always some proprietary SoC that you can never get full documentation for. Even the Pi isn't quite 100% open.

Anyway, kick ass. I'm gonna have to give this a go today :D
Computers: Amiga 1200, DEC VAXStation 4000/60, DEC MicroPDP-11/73
Synthesizers: Roland JX-10/MT-32/D-10, Oberheim Matrix-6, Yamaha DX7/FB-01, Korg MS-20 Mini, Ensoniq Mirage/SQ-80, Sequential Circuits Prophet-600, Hohner String Performer

I don't think so. Efforts are made on the Pi as it's WAY more popular than the Android stick you mention, often based around not so well documented hardware. Native hardware APIs on the Pi are well known and that makes it a good target for alternative OS porting.
All these sticks have in common with the great Pi is the ARM cpu architecture: the rest of the SOC elements is totally different.
So I believe it won't happen but you guys can prove me wrong. The more the merrier :D

dont think the builds are public by now. its kalamatee private tree, until he commits there is nothing to look into.

You are correct, this is just from the first time it booted, there is still lots of things to do until this is end user ready.

Are there any updates to this? Really like the idea of using a Pi with native AROS.

Cool! I didn't notice before: having it supported for Amigas, x86 and Raspberry Pi would be great! (lot of work indeed...)

This is the coolest thing I've heard since the X1000 was released :-)  I want one :-)

That is pretty awesome. What is the performance like on the Pi? The hardware is fairly under-powered for Linux but how does AROS fare?
