AFROS – Atari FRee Operating System. It used to be distributed in the form of a harddisk image but now it’s just a plain set of files creating preinstalled TOS compatible EmuTOS/FreeMiNT/fVDI/XaAES based operating system. In the combination of ARAnyM/Linux and AFROS you basically get a completely free TOS/MiNT compatible operating system running on any machine where Linux runs.

ARAnyM/AFROS Live CD is a SLAX-based bootable CD with a small collection of GNU/Linux software, the ARAnyM and the AFROS. It boots and runs completely from CD, does not write anything to the hard drive on its own, but you can write to hard drive from inside the AFROS using the drive D:.

ARAnyM is a software virtual machine (similar to VirtualBox or Bochs) designed and developed for running 32-bit Atari ST/TT/Falcon operating systems (TOS, FreeMiNT, MagiC and Linux-m68k) and TOS/GEM applications on any kind of hardware – be it an IBM clone (read it as “PC”), an Apple, an Unix server, a graphics workstation or even a portable computer.

The developer of ARAnyM and AFROS is Petr Stehlik.

  1. There was a live CD of a project named “Looking Glass” which was a GUI developed in Java and it was also based on a Slax build. Can you please add that as well on this website. Here is the link to its Wikipedia page:-
