one of the problem is that developers often get no reward (be it donations or simply feedback) and then give up. I do not want to talk down others who are happy I only explain why Matthew (propably) made his comment. We should see the situation how it is. I am personally at the moment have different personal trouble (real life) and I have enough to do and to learn in normal world running boring development environments on boring bloated OS and am not unhappy with it. I have not much time at the moment but that might change somewhen. My Aros distribution is on hold at the moment, I understand that people prefer the old original Amiga OS with lots of patches to it and I am fine with that. I just lack (next to time) motivation to do something with it.
I feel a bit like an idiot, was not aware you worked on an Aros dist, another project I missed. After searching around this URL seems relevant (assuming it is correct):

Over the years I have read news about Aros now and then, but always saved it for the day when I want to install something similar to AmigaOS on x86. Was unaware until now that there is a 68k version. Checking the website now.


I think "Aros Vision PAL" is the one to try on my A1200 (details in sig). I have a few questions:

1) Are there any "ready to use" image dumps I can just 'dd' onto an empty CF card?
2) Can I boot it with 3.1 ROMs?
3) What file systems are supported?
