Well Kickstarts 1.x -> 2.x should be free... but 3.1 shouldn't.
While I don't agree with the way Amiga inc are going I still don't think that you should just help your self to there most "current" hardware for free.... The older roms, however, that aren't used, or even sold by Amiga anymore, should be released...
I agree with the nothing beats the real thing though
I'll have to get all my Amiga's out and play on them again some day (when i have time, which is never :hooooo )
I might be slightly bias towards cloanto though.. The ceo there has supported Jambo! throughout the years (free prizes software etcc...) Associate cloanto with good things. But still, Amiga forever = excellent amiga emu resource for beginners, buy it
