Linux distribution with Amiga design: Workbench OS
"Workbench OS" (video) provided by John Petrella and Adriano Morselli is a Linux distribution with Amiga design. The desktop Mate is changed with several themes and and a corresponding icon set based on the look of different AmigaOS versions.

Besides, the emulator FS-UAE is preinstalled (Kickstart-ROMs are not included) and the usage of Icaros under a virtual environment is explained on the website of Workbench OS.

Workbench OS is available as these different versions: The "preview" version from December 2017 as PCLinuxOS edition with RPM package manager or with DEB package system. The "stable" version was released about three weeks later and is only available as RPM/PCLinuxOS version. For this December a version based on Debian Testing was announced. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Amiga On The Lake: Replacement keyboards by Kipper2K
The company owners of "Amiga On The Lake", Aaron Smith and Jeffery Yoder, did finance the production of the replacement keyboards developed by 'Kipper2K' in advance and have taken over the worldwide distribution. Replacement keyboards for the Amiga 500 and 1200 will be available about Xmas, the ones for the Amiga 600, 2000, 3000 and 4000 will follow. Additional to the complete keyboards also replacement PCB membranes for repairing the A500/A600 and A1200 computers "are expected to be available after Xmas 2018".

The replacement keyboards will be sent as keyboard kits with instructions. You have to pay 189 US-Dollar for the A1200 version and ten more for the A500. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Amino taking legal measures against AmigaOS 3.1.4
Yesterday, Hyperion's AmigaOS 3.1.4 stopped being available for purchase, the relevant links on Hyperions Website didn't go anywhere. Today, the company announced on Facebook that "normal online purchase services" had resumed and wished its customers "Happy 3.1.4 buying again!".

If you look closer, you'll realize that Hyperion is using a different service provider for its online sales now: until yesterday, Avangate was handling the commercial downloads for the Belgian company. Now all "buy now" links are pointing to shareit.com. The first party to point out that 3.1.4 sales had been stopped due to a cease and desist from Amiga Washington (Amino) was author of the Amiga Documents report in a Twitter posting yesterday.

We were now able to have this confirmed by several sources: behind the scenes, Hyperion management is confirming that the company - or rather, its service provider Avangate - recieved a cease and desist from Amino. As of now, it is unknown to us what this C&D is based on. But Hyperion simply switching to a different service provider and continuing to sell the product worldwide is a clear statement that the two parties disagree about the legal situation.

AROS-Linux symbiosis: Status update on "ARIX"
The goal of "ARIX" is to run most parts of AROS on a Linux kernel. The project was started several years ago and the latest information dates from 2013. Since August the developer Michal Schulz writes regularly entries in his blog about the latest developments.

Update: (21.10.2018, 16:00, cg)

As Schulz points out in a posting (German) on amiga-news.de, his new ARIX project is using a different approach: he's no longer trying to run AROS hosted on the Linux kernel, he's now trying to create a Linux based operating system mimicking AmigaOS/AROS wherever possible. (cg) (Translation: dr)

New external PCMCIA adapter for A1200: KA02
At rastport.com an external PCMCIA adapter is introduced which places the PCMCIA card "vertically along the Amiga side, and which occupies much less place on the desk." By that you can save space e.g. for ethernet cards with cable connection. rastport.com's products are distributed via a number of dealers that are listed at the landing page of the developers website.

Note of the editor: For tower cases  - in which usually external PCMCIA adapters are used  - this version might be less suitable because according to the photos the port is probably higher than at an A1200 motherboard in a tower case. (cg) (Translation: dr)
