A merry, merry Christmas and Happy 2008 from VmwAROS! As pointed on aros.org, it has been an important year for AROS development, diffusion and public image, and VmwAROS is really proud of its little contribution. We saw AROS growing in the last 12 months, but it isn't enough yet: so our little pray for Santa is to bring AROS some new developers, in order to add the still-missing things and bugfixes. In the meanwhile, VmwAROS will continue increasing accessibility to anyone interested in trying it.
