"AROS One" v1.1 released

UPDATE 2019-07-30:
Ops, sorry! I've just received message from the author of this new distro - it's not Andreas Magerl, but "Spadoni Carlo" / AMIGASYSTEM! Thanks for the info!

It's been only a couple of days since we reported about new AROS distro "AROS One" v1.0, and it's already got an update.


Very nice, AROS One has been released in version 1.1. Even nicer: this time a m68k version has been added!

Note that the m68k version is currently aimed at emulators and hasn't been tested on real hardware so far. Also it's supplied in form of a hardfile, which can't be used directly on a real Amiga.

Tutorial videos and are provided, along with ROMs and WinUAE config file for the m68k version.

Little is known about this distro so far, so maybe it's best you give it a try yourself!

Go to English Amiga Board's "AROS One" v1.1 forum pages for more information, video links, and file downloads:

New distro: "AROS One" by "Spadoni Carlo" / AMIGASYSTEM

UPDATE 2019-07-30:
Ops, sorry! I've just received message from the author of this new distro - it's not Andreas Magerl, but "Spadoni Carlo" / AMIGASYSTEM! Thanks for the info!

Pretty much from out of nowhere a new AROS distro has popped up: "AROS One v1.0" by "Spadoni Carlo" / AMIGASYSTEM.

"AROS One" is "Spadoni Carlo"'s personal AROS distribution, which he just made available to the public.

It's based on AROS x86 ABIv0 latest nightly builds, comes with a custom icon set, a "AROS-for-Amiga" (AfA) style Wanderer setup, and is preconfigured for vmware virtual machine use. Installation on real hardware will require some adjustments, e.g. network interface.


Here's a demo video:
