AROS is the open source version of what was once made for Commodore Amiga computers. A commercial look-alike is called MorphOS. Both are currently being updated with MorphOS much more advanced than AROS. Development is extremely limited and AROS is currently not interested in users, but developers. Most of the development uses the development tools of Linux, Windows, and Darwin. Most AROS versions are hosted on Linux. There are a few versions that are completely native. The target hardware is X86, 68K, PowerPC, and ARM. Unfortunately they are not targeting MIPS, which adds to the uniqueness of AROS and MorphOS, considering that the Commodore Amiga used higher quality hardware and at one point in time, completely customized hardware. But as far as ARM is concerned, which is a leader in hardware, ... AROS runs native on the Raspberry Pi. But as with any AROS, there is no software available. I have donated to MorphOS and AROS website power2people which handles external funding. The Bounty Projects I donated to were canceled which is very annoying. There are months where there is no development at all and that is very sad because it is Open Source and it should attract many developers. Until AROS and MorphOS improves, then I will not use these very nice but needs improvement Operating Systems.
