Well, an emulator would be a pretty good start ;)

WinUAE is a 32-bit Windows version (XP/Vista/7) of the UAE Amiga Emulator. UAE is the collaborative effort of a number of Amiga enthusiasts to create a portable Amiga emulator.

WinUAE allows you to run Amiga software under Windows, including many games, demos, and applications. General compatibility is excellent, and there are a number of enhancements in WinUAE compared to a standard Amiga computer.

Although not an internal component part of the actual AIAB distribution you wouldn't get far without it, unless of course you own a real Amiga, that's a different story.


The original Workbench gets older every day and is being left behind by other desktop systems. Scalos's original author, Stefan Sommerfeld, decided that there had to be something new, and so Scalos was born.

First of all, Scalos is NOT a replacement OS, Scalos integrates a lot of additional functionality and an enhanced look without losing any of the look-and-feel we all love about the real Workbench.


As many other Tools this one is another example of a Windows like Starmenu, unlike most of them you can drag&drop items direct in the menu. Developed by Darius Brewka
