In practice, this would allow the Windows port of AROS to run smoothly in Amiga Forever.


I don't get it. AF is an m68k Amiga emulator. Why would it be able to run the Windows port of AROS?

Anyway isn't that a bit A*** about Face? Why would anybody want to run AROS on top of AF on top of Windows?! There's already a version of AROS which runs perfectly well on top of Windows.

I can see the advantage to a UAE/AF integration into AROS. But this I just don't get.

Why not? It's one more thing that people would be able to experience, not one thing less.

If AROS already ran "perfectly well" on Windows, there would perhaps also be little need for the previous bounty ("Port AROS to run on Windows/Cygwin"), which is still assigned, but this is not entirely the case. This bounty also aims to improve the quality of the Windows port in general.

This can be a great way for old Amiga users to get to know AROS. Nice move !
I hope you get someone to complete the bounty,
