BestWB 1.1 - 07.03.2019
BestWB is a new workbench pack, much like BetterWB. It aims to be much like an
enhancement, an updated extension to AmigaOS 3.1.4, without all those 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 the unneeded bloat often associated with these kind of distros. It persues speed and usability and does not focus on eye candy.
