How can I try Amiga os?

Hi, I'm just a normal pc user who likes to try operating systems and I knew about Amiga os a week ago and wanted to test it out. I tried to install it in Oracle Virtualbox like I do always but unfortunately it didn't work.
After doing some search I found about winUAE but as soon as I got to the download link I got stuck cuz of the many download options that I don't know which is one I should install. I searhed the internet and youtube but nothing helpful!
Luckily I found this forum so if can anyone please help me I will be thankful

Amiga OS

The easiest and quickest way for someone just starting out is to get the AmigaForever package from Cloanto. It can be purchased here: http://www.amigaforever.com/
Without it you would have a lot of problems with missing ROMS and adf files.

Like pyterman posted, if you have some spare cash then AF is recommended for a first time user.


Click on 'Installer' after 'Download WinUAE 3.2.2', for the latest WinUAE.

You can use the built in aros.rom that comes with WinUAE and then all you need are some .adf files (Amiga Disk file) to load into the emulator.
