WinUAE is not an OS. It is an emulator - basically this means it pretends to be Amiga hardware.
You need to get the Amiga OS (aka Workbench) separately, and the Kickstart ROM.
Neither of these is free (legally... as with anything else you will find them on the net if you look hard enough - not that I encourage this ).

There is an OS being developed for the PC that is based on the Amiga OS, but I can't remember the name at the moment... anyone?

AmigaOS might not be free but you don't need to have it to get WinUAE working. Software that runs from emulated floppies don't require the OS installed and most of the games fit into this category. Only thing you MUST have to use winuae is the kickstart rom, which contains the data that a real amiga computer has on it's bios. Also take my tip, many things in life are free, google is one of them I think you need more information about amiga and emulation in general, for this, check this forum's "guides and tutorials" section.

That's aros.
