|Apollo team launched AROS-based operating system project|
First the developer team of the Apollo-FPGA-Core used in the Vampire products did choose AROS as official operating system. After having had some problems with the free AmigaOS clone, the Kickstart-ROMs officially licenced from Cloanto were used. From around Apollo is also the Workbench distribution Coffin OS which includes illegal copies.
Obviously they now are going to tackle the problem at source: In a Activity Report it is told that on Github a Fork of AROS has been established - their "goal is to improve AROS 68k support and level up its compatibility with AmigaOS3 to the best state possible".
A logo already has been published on Github which also tells the name of the new fork of AROS: "Apollo OS". The code itself obviously has not been changed a lot although there is a first alpha version of the new system (download site).
Update: (11.08.2020, 16:15, cg)
The Apollo OS download was hosted by a one-click hoster. Apparently, the number of allowed downloads was limited and the Alpha release of the operating system is no longer available anymore. (cg) (Translation: dr)
