KX Light boot environment, to optionally boot from CD (no
Windows or other host OS required)
Like the amount of work that went into this project, some of
the most important "features" of Amiga Forever are
somewhat difficult to describe. They involve your feelings when
you see the system booting from a slow floppy disk into a blue
Workbench screen, and you suddenly seem to remember every word
that appears on that Startup-Sequence window, and by listening to
the emulated floppy drive sound you appear to be able to
anticipate every disk head seek, as if it was a melody. And if
you never experienced this before, then... welcome to the
Even if you "were there" in those days, in the mid
1980s, you may be surprised to see and learn something new about
events that made not only Amiga history, but computer history and
culture. That is the goal of the Gallery and Videos sections on
the CD Edition, which include carefully researched and
passionately digitized and restored items of historical interest.
Then just press a few buttons, and you are the one booting the
same Amiga OS 1.0 you just saw in a video, starting the Boing
ball demo, or Juggler, or Robo-City, or listening to the Amiga's
It is equally hard to describe the feeling of a
"modern" Amiga system that just works as you would
expect it to, with support for hard drives larger than 4 GB,
configuration-free internet access, a CD drive that does not
require setting up drivers, devices and file systems, a mouse
wheel that you could nowadays not do without, but which the
original Amiga had never heard of, or a web browser preconfigured
to use the same keyboard shortcuts as your PC, Mac or GNU/Linux
system. With Amiga Forever, all of this attention to detail is
just one mouse click away, as invisible as it is obviously ready
Similarly, we believe that there is a certain magic involved
when you see your familiar Amiga files appear on a Windows
Explorer window by means of Amiga Explorer, or when you realize
the contrast between the emulated CRT scan lines (an optional
emulation feature) and the almost paper thin LCD display you are
now using to experience all of this again...
