What is AmiKit/Amiga?

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 by PoSmedley | Discussion: OS Customization

I have seen this posted on Facebook and am unfamiliar with it. Since I don't have ODN right now I was curious.  Is it a desktop customization suite?

AmiKit is a free project that turns your tablet computer or phone into legendaryAmiga

Here's some info on it. I've never heard of it until you mentioned it.

I see. I thought it was just customization. It's more like running linux or something over your current OS?

It seems to be an emulator to turn your 2010-ish PC into a 1980-ish Amiga. Ah, progress!

Might be fun to play with, but I wouldn't run it on my main rig. (at least not before I made a full backup.)

I have an emulater around here somewhere that turns my computer into CSIRAC ...the only intact 1st gen comp on the planet.

 

They're related....mine has LEDs... CSIRAC has valves...
