Yes, I'm indeed more referring to the commercial distribution of AmiKit X and FlowerPot. It's not the case that I want to get any money for my own stuff, but I don't like it when 380 freeware programs are sold for more than a minimal copy fee. Of course, it's a lot of work to preinstall and configure such a distribution, but somebody who is starting a project like AmiKit X should know that it will always remain a freeware collection which is based on the work of many other people and should not be sold. But that's only my personal opinion.

I can't see much freeware in Amiga Forever except for WinUAE, and there might be an agreement with Toni Wilen, I don't know. I would never care about games and demos, just uninteresting for me.

If I had a Mac I would download FS-UAE, as Minuous suggested, and then build up my own system with all what I need and without all the other wasted GBs in these preinstalled distros.
