What I'd love is for the original Thief/Thief 2 missions to be ported to The Dark Mod, and then graphically upgraded to match. But they won't do that, nor will they allow anyone to publish such :(

Yes, but also to be fair it's being loudly touted (by its fans, not by the devs) as a viable 68k replacement for OS3.1 too. But it's way too bloated and doesn't run well outside of WinUAE's fastest...

Oh, I'm with you on that one. The standard UI in AROS is absolutely atrocious. Apparently you can use Amiga icons with AROS so you'd likely have to go through and replace them all yourself. As for...

A1200 cost me £399. Internal 2.5" HDD cost £350 for a 260MB drive. They fucked up and sent me a 360MB instead - I didn't complain :)
