Floppy disk Arix OS

To anyone interested in AROS, the Arix Foundation website should go live in 7 Days, see: http://www.arixfoundation.com/

The site is a simple WordPress theme, so some of the pages are accessible through the usual tricks.

Arix OS will be a commercial fork of AROS, that will be available in two versions:

1. Arix OS Hosted, free for Win (32 and 64 bit), Linux, OSX and Android.
2. Arix OS Native, paid for x86, ARM and PPC.

Arix Foundation is Randy Vice, Timothy Deters, Faith Attanasio, Eric Shpunt, Magnus Ahlvik, Jason McMullan (Source: http://businessprofiles.com/details/...146/vice-randy)

ABOUT ARIX FOUNDATION (http://www.arixfoundation.com/sample-page/)

Arix Foundation Corp was founded in 2012 in the great state of Florida by eight partners, two Europeans and six Americans. What drew the initial group of partners together was a long burning passion for a computer system designed in the 1980s called the Commodore Amiga. After Commodore’s bankruptcy in 1994, a young group of coders believed they could create an open source version of their cherished OS and began coding in 1995. It was under AROS which Arix Foundation Corp’s partners first met and worked to better the fledgling operating system called AROS.
The power of open source is what created and motivated many to contribute to AROS. However, open source is a two edge sword, direction and control is minimal to non existent which hobbled development of a remarkable OS. This is where the partners decided that a commercial fork of AROS had to happen in order to bring forth a truly modern OS that can compete in today’s marketplace.
Today, Arix Foundation Corp partners are still active with the AROS development as both groups will benefit from each others work to some degree. Much like Apple’s relationship with open source community via Darwin.
