AROS booting on x86_64

I wanted to test something 64bit on my new Qemu build, and for the heck of it wen to check out AROS.

And much to my amazement, there is a working x86_64 in the nightly build, 20131104!

To me it’s very cool to see a 64bit AROS… It’s the kind of thing we’d only dream about back in 1993.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. I tried loading 64-bit AROS on qemu-system-x86_64… on a Pentium 3. It., uh “booted,” but usable was not what I would define it as.
