As promised you can grab it from

It is based on beta 1 from a few weeks ago. The "Supporter"-Version comes with "lx"-command.

In order to give you still access to Linux stuff the following is also supported in the free Version: (Please click read more.)

- tint2 Taskbar allows accessing of Linux stuff (right click on it)
- Linux Windows are "hovering" above Wanderer. Just like Widgets on OS X.

Remember to try the "mouse wheel" feature on Window-title-bars. Very handy and makes window movement much faster.

From now on the public release will be 2 versions behind the "supporter Version".

I hope that I can add an ARM-based AresOne next week to

Next weekend I will upload beta3 which will then match AEROS for x86 r3.5 except for applications. I do try to give you what is also possible on PPC Linux. Sadly.. it's much less than what is possible on ARM.

The Screenshot shows r3.5 for x86. Next Raspberry Pi image will look similar except the Icon size which is already smaller by default. (Last native AROS Broadway introduced changeable Icon-sizes 48x48, 64x64 and 128x128 as shown on the screenshot)

How well (or poorly) does UAE work on the Pi? Is there a way to make emulation seamless... or as seamless as the Pi allows?

And why not contact Raspberry Pi and ask them to put this into their downloads section? I expect a lot more users would try it if it was available with other official distributions of Linux and Risc OS. I expect a very large percentage of Pi owners has no idea this even exists.

uae4all works. You can expect A500 speed.

I will include AROS68k in the next update.

I am tired of contacting people, also I lack the language skills to ask "friendly" : ) . I did in the past and they didn't wan't it (it was before they have put RiscOS on that page).

Ooh... nice.

I have been holding off on getting a Pi until UAE was at least usable. So it may be time to order one.

And I suggest contacting them again. I know one of the Raspberry Pi people was at one time asking around in regard to the legal status of Amiga kickstarts. If you can provide them with a working AROS (hosted) w/ 68K rom replacement + Amiga emulator, I would think they would at least listen now.
