Do not throw your old computer, install Tiny Aros
Tiny Aros is a distribution based on the Aros operating system which is similar to the Workbench 3.1 Amiga and compatible at the level of api. It runs on x86 computers but does not support modern storage media such as M.2 or sata devices (to make the sata support work from the computer bios you have to select the ATA emulation item) support also uefi boot(on the bios
disable secure boot for no windows compatibility) the system is light and loads in a matter of seconds , why choose Aros? I chose it for the passion I have for Amiga and I enjoy it so much, certainly it cannot be compared to windows or linux but currently it is possible to use it with pleasure, maybe you can try it on a virtual machine. Unfortunately, there is a browser that is not updated to be able to navigate on some modern sites like facebook and others, but most of the forums and portals can be viewed. There are other applications supplied with the distribution.
There is a support for 3D accelleration for intel GMA chipset but the best expierence have to nvidia cards but do not all card is compatible, i have utilized many nvidia 6200, 8400 GS, GT 210 and it is works fine with a games.
I tried Aros in different hardware configurations beyond the Intel Core Duo 2, some HP Z400 and Z600 workstations, Intel Core Duo Quad, I7 870 successfully, I also recommend using SSD
I chose the laptop for convenience, I currently don't have 3D acceleration but it's okay so for me, I enjoy it with Aros, of course I come from the Amiga world and maybe it is also for this reason but I do it too for passion, I am not The only one, there is a small community, certainly we cannot compare it with Windows or MacOSX and even Linux, but we have fun, there are games that exploit the OpenGL and SDL, some significant and non-relief programs, we hope that in the future it comes Always supported by programmers dealing with the application system and porting.
