It uses the same JIT engine, but otherwise is different. Windows is not involved. A customised Linux kernel is used to handle booting and setting up the emulator; while this is happening, a bouncing boing ball displays on the screen. Main limitation is that there are drivers for only a few graphics cards. If no driver, you get VESA. The stated aim is to turn a PC into an Amiga. Of course the PC floppy drive hardware can't read Amiga disks and doesn't know that floppies are removable media, so there are limits. SCSI is supported. Main thing is, it should run Rebol nice and fast. Regards -- Don Cox [doncox--enterprise--net]
