About the distros

I disagree about the Broadway distro (mentioned on the home page). It's not really maintained, and that's the problem. It has very old system files, which is not helpful for newbies. I would not recommend Broadway to anyone, unless they update the system files.

AspireOS could use an update too. Deadwood has recently back ported newer system files. But AspireOS is not nearly as far behind as Broadway. And although AspireOS was originally for the Aspire notebook, it will also work with similar notebooks. So you might give it a try, before passing on it.

There is also a very nice distro called AROS One. With a version for x86 and a version for 68k. Both versions are very artistic and look great in my opinion.

Of course, there is only one distro that comes with tons of AROS-x86 software, and that's Icaros. Some people have a hard time getting Icaros to run properly, but there is a manual that should explain how to do things.

AROS Vision comes with lots of 68k apps. I don't use 68k much, so I shouldn't comment. But 68k users should definitely try it out.

Good Luck, which ever you may choose. Smile

Great points there Cavemann. I will re-word the list of distros in the introduction, even though no one really comes here anymore.
