AmiKit wins the prize for the hottest model to ever advertise any Amiga related product.

Is she someone that the AmiKit author knows personally, or a professional model he paid to do the picture(s) to advertise AmiKit, or both?

Why is AmiKit's mascot a cat? Does that have something to do with Aros?

This is a product that seems really cool but I have never gotten it to work. I think I'll try it again today.

AmiKit works very well, and is incredibly easy to install and get going. You just need to have an OS3.5/9 CD to hand or Amiga Forever CD/DVD (the built in installer requires these).

Jan puts a lot of work into getting this package together, and it offers one of the nicer looking classic WB experiences.

@tommywright

What problems have you experienced in trying to get it up and running?

@tommywright, I agree with _Steve_!

It is one of the easiest Amiga emulations to get setup and IMHO, one of the best looking and most complete ever.

I have done some promotion for Jan in the past for AmiKit, because I think it is an excellent piece of work on his part and I appreciate all the effort he has put into bringing all the pieces together.

You really haven't seen how great Amiga emulation can be until you have seen AmiKit running on your PC. I need to check out his latest version by doing the update.

I purchased one of those cool looking Flash Drives with AmiKit pre-installed on it, as soon as they were released. I'll have to email Jan and ask him about the model he used for this promotion.
