This was an amazing week for Aros 68k and the Vampire accelerators family.
It finally boots again on the V500 and also boots on the V1200.
I have been adapting Aros Caffeine from the Vampire V4 to optimal run on the classic vampires and the support from the Apollo Team members RonyBeck and Flype was decisive to achieve what you guys are watching today.
RonyBeck with Aros bug hunting, rom building and optimization and Flype that helped rebuild from scratch the GFX saga driver.
The GFX driver is unified for all Vampire family.
Amazing work! Congratulations Aros Team and Apollo Team.

Great news! Hopefully it works on the V600 soon!  Haven't had a reason to turn it on for over a year.

And I thought I was the only one who kissed his A1200.

I have to say, I am really happy to have AROS on my V2 at last.  After several months of enjoying it on my V4, it really feels nice to be able enjoy a well featured Amiga OS universally on all my vampire powered Amigas.

I find AROS a great combination of the classic Amiga days whilst having modern features such as a TCP and USB stack by default.  It is just a pleasure to use.

The marriage of Vampire and AROS makes perfect sense.  Speed and Finesse.
