OK, what is it?
For AmiKit to work you need original Amiga Operating System files.
They cannot be included due to copyright, of course. However, during AmiKit installation, they will be automagically imported from your source.

In 2015 Trevor Dickinson from A-EON came up with an excellent idea of a dedicated hardware for AmiKit - an Amiga-compatible laptop which Commodore has never produced. AmiKit X (version 10) was specially developed for this laptop for 2 years.
Now you can enjoy its successor AmiKit XE on your own computer!
Everything began in 1994 when my parents bought an Amiga 500 for me. I was 14 years old. It's a long time ago, WOW!
Fast forward to 2005, the AmiKit was born - an emulated environment including more than 350 programs. It fully replaced my old Amiga hardware and it became a legend in the Amiga community over the years.
Fast forward to 2017, a brand new AmiKit X is released, originally developed for A.L.I.C.E., followed by the latest & greatest XE version released in 2019.
When someone, who has never heard about Amiga before, asks me why I would want to turn current modern computer into something retro and old fashioned, my short answer is:
"Simply because I love Amiga!"
"Enjoy AmiKit, just like
I enjoyed creating it." --Ján
The longer answer, which I like and use often, involves Mustang. Not a horse. The car Ford Mustang from the 60's. It was a piece of art and if you ever had one (not me), you were a happy man, now with many beautiful memories.
If you want to feel it again now, you can buy an old Mustang, providing you find one, or you can buy a new, quite ordinary car and use a magic stick to make it look and behave like your old love.
The hood and interior are exactly as you remember them! The only difference is that the engine is much more powerful, and the modern features and extra add-ons are now mounted.
And that's exactly what AmiKit is all about. You can revive your memories, enjoy your old computer again, now in a power suit!
