|But as is common with Votes in the Amiga Community... the Logs show that some users are voting more than once... shame.|
But please keep voting.

|Is there any documentation on how to actually get it running under Linux. I DLed and installed Mandrake just for AROS, DL'ed the AROS for linux archive & extracted it. but being a Nix newbie, I can't get AROS to run.|

You could always drop by EFnet (http://www.efnet.org/ircdb/servers.php) and join #aros im sure there will be someone around that might be able to help you and if not wait or come back latter ;).

|Hm. The missing option: 'Zune' with the acceptable abbreviation of ZUI? Perhaps Zune can be the implementation, while 'ZUI' would be the API it tracks? (Not much familiar with MUI, let alone the reimplementation, so I don't know how much they differ..)|
Is MUI/ZUI (in that naming convention) worth salt as another portability layer along the lines of Tk, GTK, WxWindows, whatever?

|Oh, how about "Aros User Interface" - no need for fancy names to confuse new users. Keep it consistant, keep it simple. IMHO|

Yes, exactly what I thought. ARG (Amiga Research GUI) would also work. :-)

Oki, should have been a dummy page there for now though IMHO. Perhaps with a link to one of the mirrors if they are still up ...

Just for fun, I tested to compile the source code on Linux,
The morphos modified version, by just adding
#include “exec/*” parts and adding
#define ULONG unsigned int
I got down to about 50 lines that can not be compiled, mainly in the aweb.c
I believe if you use the same sourcecode and renaming the
#ifdef __Morphos__ to #ifdef __AROS__
the source code will almost work.
PS. This the aweb source code is not well structured,
Routines are not sorted by there function in different header files,
they are mostly intermixed GFX gfx routines and web routines in the same aweb.c

DNS for aros.org is working fine, and the domain expires in 2003.
It is just that www.aros.org points to 188.8.131.52 which is an unreachable host. When the new server is installed or they sort out hosting elsewhere, then www.aros.org will be updated in the DNS and should start working fairly soon afterwards.

184.108.40.206 is the AROS server, which basically is sbb.hepe.com. I don't know why www.aros.org points to the other address.

|Fun poll. You guys rule. I had to vote twice, to get back to the screen that links Matt's AROS page, sorry.|
You are so close now. What is the future for AROS? Commercial? Do you worry about legal problems? Will it be free for everyone? Will you be able to do all the standard computing stuff: web browsing, word processing, video etc?

I voted twice, too. Once for "Zune" because it's a really cool name :-)
And once for "Perception" beacuse Intuition & Perception work well together.

|I'm not sure to understand. Will ZUNE be MUI compatible ? Or something|
new only developped for AROS ? Or something new which could also be
used for instance in MorphOS or OS4 ? Same question about the Aros
WB replacement ? I hope it won't split the community once again !!!
New developments should be shared with MOS or/and OS4 !!!

|I think the name should be called ZUI if this is a port of mui to AROS.|
If this is basicaly an GUI API for AROS that impliments some MUI functionality, it should be called perception so that it releates to AmigaOS's Intuition!

It is NOT a port of MUI to Aros! Zune was developed for Linux as a MUI look a like! the dev stopped long ago! the Aros guys took over the sources and ported it to Aros! and now even the old developer of Zune is interested in developing it further for Aros ;).

|In reply to Comment 24 (4pLaY):|
More precisely, Zune is an Open Source implementation of the MUI API, therefore it's compatible with it at source level and even at binary level on Amiga's. Zune, as a matter of facts, is developed under AmigaOS rather than under AROS, and only a small amount of fixes here and there are needed, once in a while, to make it run under AROS too.
This basically means that when Zune will be enough mature, there will be a complete replacement for MUI under AmigaOS.

|Thanks for the replies. But I thought MUI was still under development ?|
What is the point in replacing it (for AOS at least) ?

1) There's not been any new MUI version since 1998.
2) The Zune author hasn't got an x86 linux machine on which tests and development can be done.
