Aros is the open source implementation of the workbench on the intel platform, an operating system that works in the amiga, computers produced since the mid 80's, is compatible at API level with the aforementioned, is not widespread in the world but there is a small community of programmers and users in general, there is a powerpc version for sam cards produced by acube srl, hosted linux and windows, and we are working on the new A86 for x86, in the future already in 2019 we will work on multicore support already in the embryonic phase and then to an x86-64 version already under development.
Actually, the stable x86 branch is functional, has gallium for the 3D acceleration for the nvidia cards of the geforce 5000 series to 9000 and for the very early intel example the gma915, many port of games from the linux world have been made and run very well, the minimum technical specifications to run aros are minimal, at least a 1 ghz cpu and 1 gb of ram, compatible ethernet card, nvidia graphics card if you want the 3D acceleration and enjoy the games that take advantage of this feature, and compatible sound card, modern web-based odyssey browser runs well on eeepc 900 too.
There is the driver for the system of integrated sound cards hdaudio, if not supported by your system you can use a pci card as the sound blaster live and pci-e as the cmi8738, for the network if you have the same problem with existing drivers , you can resort to a very common pci or pci-e rtl 8139,8168,8169.
the system recognizes the standard vesa, and there is a driver for a usb wifi device the netgear wg311v3.
The convenient netbook acer aspire one zg5 and a110 and eeepc 900 are fully supported.
