        Sounds like Coffin or preferably AROS, will be the way forward.
       

       
        I am interested also, and would buy Vamp specific installer.
        Bundled with OS 3.1.4., could make a nice legal starter. That could be its potential.
        Preferably, such single CD bundle could be a Vamp install and repair media and could update Vamp core, SAGA drivers and even ROM. That would be my wish list and would pay as much as currently AmiKit costs with Flower Pot.
       
        AROS seems to be only way forward that can develop the OS components further and likely get a decent browser. m68k Linux I hope will be an option too.
     
      So, AROS Vision for Vampire would be my boot#2 option :)
      There is interest by author too. These are two most legal packs
      of m68k software of today.
      From AROS Vision FB page
     
      "News regarding Aros on Vampire. Thanks to help of Kalamatee the boot problem on vampire is now solved. Right now they are working on speed optimizations. As soon something is ready I hope to do Aros Vision for Vampire"

      I guess what Im asking, how does it hold up compared to Coffin for example performancewise? Too much fluff/many addons?
   

   
    Coffin is "lighter" and more spartan in look, thus faster.
    It also included more WB apps and games, emulators and their games etc. So Coffin is free and superior (to any AmiKit and esp. to AmiKit Real based on older builds) plus it includes Vamp specific tools and core version checker and flasher, and even TOS/Mint and backup partitions.
    But then again, AmiKit is fully legal and includes nice all-in-one updater, nice exclusives and OS 3.5/OS 3.9/OS4 check to have OS3 legally.
