BestWB 1.1 – 07.03.2019
BestWB is a new workbench pack, much like BetterWB. It aims to be muchlike an enhancement, an updated extension to AmigaOS 3.1.4, without allthose hardware penalties typically associated with these kind of packs. It is indeed a better 3.1.4 than 3.1.4 itself!
BestWB will suit anyone that wishes a clean AmigaOS experience without theunneeded bloat often associated with these kind of distros. It persues speedand usability and does not focus on eye candy.
