Sa and Aros KS
  Price is fair, no real ks and os is a downer, but dealers have cloanto licenses and os3.9 purchase-able. Glad I saved my os3.5 cd, just need idefix and ide cd rom

Also if anyone has Aros ks compatibility list (seen on moo bunny) please provide
  - does sa have double ks, is it just fail safe or user can switch? Are they 512k? Can it be seen as one bank for remus made "os3.9 ks"?
    - Surely, some on boot tool that would flash os3.x rom from SD card would be a solution. I prefer remus made 1mb "os3.9+" roms, if that could fit, my kudos

Thanks AROS warrior :)

Great, so "OS 3.9" with "moreWB" could fit :)
Saves money for OS 3.1.4 ROM or offers improved remus made
OS 3.1.4 no hustle option.

What does AROS ROM have better then plain 3.1?

Do you have magic OS 3.x sw tested on AROS KS list?

I don't no what's in the aros ROM right now that ks3.1.4 lacks but adding sd card boot should be a priority so that it can be sold with an sd card with an aros distro ready 5o run.

im no aros warrior. im a very basic enthusiast (if this is even applicable) who sees it as (lets say) an excepional development opportutnity. i stick to it, as he only open system that takes into account the original architecture.

edit: seems t is at fail on the machine here.

id prefer to go with the the genuine amigos source low level (to admit new hardware particularly) since years and decades, but its been off. so this has no option to boot from another device attached to different controller than last millenium one, i see.

I ment just reading the ROM from SD card, not full boot.
  Typos are from Google Android 7 Virtual keyboard plus !%&$ autocomplete etc.

Its nice to see people are humble, but you are the only one telling us what AROS is and what it really can in present shape and form. Add a bit of development to it, and I would dub it "a warrior"

As in other arts, e.g. Warrior Music, Roots Reggae Label
but in AROS computing
