TwinKick: dual Kickstart boot via floppy for Amiga 1000

  By special contributor intric8 - Posted on 2017-10-12 21:19:43 UTC at http://OSNews.com

A "new" piece of software, quietly created 15 years ago, that allows Amiga 1000 users to load their Kickstart 1.3 or 3.1 (or "morph" between the two on a soft reset after loading 3.1) off a single disk has been discovered [https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=341]. The software is called TwinKick and is downloadable via Aminet. The linked post includes detailed instructions on how to create this disk.

Being able to switch between the two Kickstarts is pretty incredible. Although seeing 3.1 load onto a Amiga 1000 - off a floppy - is pretty mind blowing by itself.
