As you might know the Apollo-Team does support the development of the free AROS Amiga Operating System.
To further emphasis this all V4-SA system
will be shipped including a pre-installed AROS Compact Flash.

That is very good to hear. AROS is the future for Vamp. :)
  If only I could get an mail that my v.4 is ready to be sent.
  I will help you beta test. I done hell of a lot of beta testing for AROS in the past.

Nice move. Since AROS is quite barebone, I suppose it does include Vamp drivers. Can some more free AROS m68k software, in existence, be preinstalled? Something like Pedro is experimenting, minus anything that has IP on it.

This is good news and I believe a good move also.

Same question though, will those of us that already have V4SA be able to lay our hands on said image please? Really quite keen to take it for a spin and see how far it has progressed lately.

i think it ll then be the responsibility of aros/apollo team to provide stable snapshots, as well as constant updates for testing. considering that the main repo produces aros nightly build for m68k and marlons fork produces now and then an update as soon as it has been synced, we will be able to deliver up to date system on a daily basis.

Indeed a great move!

Ive signed up in the V4 Queue, and will be using AROS exclusively.

Mine came only with AROS kickstart, no AROS. :/ I should have ordered direct from this page instead of Vesalia I suppose.
