Overview

AROS is cross-platform and opensource. It is supporting different hardware platforms including X86, AMD64, ARM (32bit and in future 64bit), PPC and 68k. There are partly ABI0 and ABI1, ABI0 is stable and new features are only backported from time to time, reason is that new commits can break software, ABI1 is the development branch changing every time. 68k f.e. is only ABI1. There are hosted and native versions, 68k is the exception because there is no hosted. Hosted means Aros runs as application on top of a host system (f.e. Windows or Linux), native often is potential faster but depends on supported hardware. Aros is generated as nightly every day (dedicated for OS developers), Users should use distributions the most common are: Icaros Desktop (X86) AspireOS (X86) Aeros (X86 and ARM) Aros Vision (m68k) Videos
