Aros on existing amiga hardware

To make Aros 68k better running on slower hardware there is a bounty to update Workbook to 3.1. level. Workbook is a lightweight Aros desktop booting from disk. The idea is to lower the minimum requirement for Aros to 68020 or 68030. If you want a free and open OS on 68k amiga hardware that is in development then support the bounty

Aros on future amiga hardware

Aros Rom Replacement and Aros 68k perfectly fits to new Vampire 2 / Apollo because sources are free and open and can be adapted to new amiga hardware.

More to come...

Aros on emulation (UAE)

Aros 68k already runs on many different platforms including Windows (WinUAE and FS-UAE), Macintosh and Linux (FS-UAE), Aros x86, ARM based hardware and Android (UAE4ALL). Another variant is AMINUX that boots from stick.

First steps:

Copy “installer” in C. Most recommended is this here from aminet or use manual below.

Change locale and keymaps is easy to do by right-mouseclick and then selects prefs/


  • to change locale and keymap use Prefs/Locales and Prefs/Keymaps and select the language
  • You can also change easily between english and german by Prefs/Language.
  • To change between Intuition-extension and AGA-extension in Amos select Prefs/Amos
  • Activate and deactivate Executive by Prefs/Executive
  • Arexx can be activated by Prefs/Arexx (when booting there is a error requester but rexxmast works)
  • Printer can be changed by Prefs/Printer (Postscript is default)
  • Installer can be downloaded from aminet by Prefs/Installer/Install. You can copy “Installer” then from Ram Disk in C
  • Between MUI38 and Zune you can change by Prefs/MUI
  • You can also change themes by Prefs/Themes and one of the options

With ralt-b (Backup of System) and ralt-r (Restore of System) the most important directories can be saved and restored. Useful when doing installations and something does not work anymore correctly. The files are saved in Extras/Restore.
