Re: QDOS on AMIGA

Hi Urs, Nice video of Amiga QDOS emulator, which looks to running on an Amiga 1000. I used to usr Amiga A500 or A600, but not with a hard drive, which maked the Amiga run better. The Amiga QL emulator, which based on QDOS Classic, or is it the other way around... also runs on the Q40, Q60. I remembe...

Re: THE DISTRIBUTION - Word is out!
