Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
[quote name=pikewerfer post=5554]@pikewerfer - OK, try again: Being a long-time Scrum Product Owner, I might be able to help. I know a few dev teams I have worked with for quite some time. Would we be able to raise a bounty for an up-to-date browser? If so, I might be able to convince one of those devs to help us out.[/quote] You could definitely count me in for an updated OWB bounty! By the way, I do use AROS as my 'daily driver' but I tend to keep everyting local on the SSD so that's probaby a bit easier than with everything online. I noticed you had a really impressive reange of Miggys at one point (I still have my A500 & a1200); if you still have the software you can run an emulated Amiga using Janus (which has a JIT so actually quite nippy) and it's amazing how productive you can still be with old software such as PageStream and Finalcalc. For YouTube, I find the easiest thing is just to copy the URL, paste it into AmiTube and download a copy. A slight wait for the download but it works reliably. Cheers, Nigel.

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
To this I cannot answer, I do not know how many users are willing to donate, certainly the whole AROS community would be thrilled and happy if this happened.

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
These days there are some problems here on the site, the administrator is fixing them, that may be the problem even though it has never happened to me!

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
Weird - I now wrote two replies, but they are seemingly not getting published. Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
I don't know if there will be an update for Odyssey in the future The programmer doesn't accept money and is the only one who can do the job, but they're very busy with other essential things

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
What is needed is for some developer to approach or come back and lend a hand to the AROS staff!

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
So - stick to Aros One and bet your money on an updated OWB. Got it. I will wait - and donate.

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
Icaros like AROS One are based on the [url=https://axrt.org/downloads-aros][b]AROS x86 reference build[/b][/url], the difference is in the customisation of the OS, Icaros it uses Magellan as the "Desktop" instead of Wanderer. the Browser on Icaros is the same, consider that Icaros has not been updated for years and includes an old Core that is no longer compatible with the New Core and the "Contrib" Applications. There are other Distributions such as TinyAROS, a Minimal Distribution also based on Magellan as "Desktop", the [url=https://aros.sourceforge.io/download.php][b]Other Distributions[/b][/url] have not been updated for many years.

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
Hi guys - one question: while we wait for an up-to-date Aros One browser, would it make sense to install Icaros? Does Icaros have a different browser, or does it also come with OWB? I understood this correctly, Aros One and Icaros are just two different flavors of Aros and use the same apps and backend?

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
Welcome to the pikewerfer forum and thank you for trying and preferring AROS One v2.5, indeed OWB needs an update, our good deadwood is working hard on it, consider that the Browser is one of the most full-bodied Software. Consider also that OWB still works for the little things, other Browsers of other platforms of the same period no longer work or are no longer supported.

Re: Introducing myself - trying this as a daily driver
Hi all - my name is pike, and I used to be a big Amiga nerd. I had a 500, 600, 1200, 2000, 4000. But then you have wife and kids... anyhow, a few years ago, I got back into the scene and have been using MorphOS on a PowerMac to have some fun. I also run Pimiga on my Pi5. Both are neat, but not what I am looking for. I am looking for a daily driver. I do 99% of my work online, so a fast browser is really all I need. My mails are online. My work is online. My music is online. My apps are online. I mainly use JIRA and SalesForce (both online). I also use Outlook (the online client on my browser, though I could use a mail client, too). And I listen to YT playlists. That is basically it. Oh, and OneDrive - also online. So I just installed AROS 2.5 on my Windows 11 VMWare Workstation Pro. Booted up nicely, but the browser is having issues loading a few things - like YT. Will fiddle around to see what I can do to improve. I have a MiniPC here with 8GB RAM and an Intel. Will install AROS natively to see what that can do. Stable release with a good browser is what I need :-) Any help appreciated.

Re: r-tea
Along with several other AROS users here, I have setup AROS Native on several different PC's and a few mini-itx PC's. Each experience is slightly different as far as which flavor of AROS is installed and how long it takes and what hardware is supported. Generally older PC's by modern standards are usually well supported. By my experience HP 8200 or 8300 SFF desktops are nice for AROS. You can also use the expansion slots to install better supported cards such as sound/graphics.

Re: r-tea
Just wanted to say hello to everyone. My very first AROS experience was a year ago on an Asus M50V laptop. Wifi and audio didn't work. I replaced the wifi module with the well known Atheros one succesfuly. But I gave up with audio. Then I played some time with the system but I noticed that an laptop isn't a good hardware for me. I grew up on A1200 in a big tower and a laptop doesn't make my day. Today I decided to set up a desktop machine for Aros ONE. That's why I am here.
