 +====== AROS on the Vampire ======
 +[[http://​aros.sourceforge.net/​|AROS]] is an open-source,​ cross-platform re-implementation of AmigaOS. ​ It is based on the AmigaOS 3.1 APIs.  AROS 68k (as well as AROS for ARM) is **binary-compatible** to Amiga programs. ​ AROS variants for other platforms are source-compatible to Amiga programs. **AROS 68k** is the recommended OS to run on the Vampire Standalone.
 +  * Open-source.
 +  * Free to use.
 +  * Contains numerous enhancements compared to AmigaOS.
 +    * Many third-party,​ unreliable solutions are now cleanly built into the OS.
 +  * Under active and continuous development.
 +    * Among other things, progress is being made to improve overall speed.
 +  * Supports most Vampire features out of the box.
 +Just like AmigaOS, AROS 68k consists of ROM-based components (Kickstart) and disk-based components. ​ If you want, you can even combine AROS components with AmigaOS components, like this:
 +  * You can load disk-based AmigaOS components on top of AROS Kickstart.
 +  * You can load disk-based AROS components on top of AmigaOS Kickstart 3.x.
 +Please refer to [[..amigaos:​|this page]] to learn how the Vampire works with Kickstarts. (When using an **AROS** Kickstart, you do not need to worry about the special considerations for **AmigaOS** Kickstarts mentioned on that page.)
 +AROS is free to download and use, but **donations** to boost this Amiga platform are greatly appreciated:​

 +ApolloOS is a fork of AROS optimized for AC68080. Building instructions are available [[https://​github.com/​ApolloTeam-dev/​AROS/​wiki/​Building|here]].
