Hi

Just re-discovered the Amiga, I had an A500 in the 1990s, but did not do  much with it.

I read the book, Vultures to Vampires Vol 1 and was surprised to see Amiga development into 21st Century.

I have recently installed AROS x86 v1.7 on a Asus EeePC 1000H 1Gb ram, 8Gb/30Gb SSD, which had Linux installed. But replacing with AROS, makes a very nice system.

Just got to get the WIFI working...

Regards,
Derek

Hi,

I have been given the AROS ONE HCL, so I think I can work it out and have a possible solution to the EeePC Netbook.

I used to repair PCs, now retired, but I have lots of PC cases and motherboards waiting for a good operating system. But I am not sure if the wife will like all the computers running...
