Below you’ll find a preview of AmiKit running on the upcoming A.L.I.C.E. laptop from A-Eon Technology. The aim of the computer is to having it boot into an Amiga Workbench environment through hidden emulation. Even though the Amiga is emulated, it will feel native to the user. In this video you will see a function they call “Rabbit Hole”. This makes it possible to run Linux software directly in Amiga Workbench, for example games through Steam and browsers.
It’s great to see signs of life from A-EON, but I do wonder what’s going on with the X5000 they announced earlier. All I’ve seen are updates concerning the development of their X5000 Linux distribution. No news about the port of AmigaOS 4.1.
Here’s a video of A.L.I.C.E. booting by the way. Nice boot menu!
Wow. Looks great. Any word on price? Would love to see the Amiga platform resurface as a viable alternative to Windows/Mac/Linux, though I realise that’s not too likely. But one can dream!
Hi there! I contacted A-Eon/AmigaKit a while ago concerning price and release date, but never received an answer from them. Hopefully it will not be too expensive. 🙂
