I think my biggest problem is that when I had the 2000 it was my system, and I added programs gradually after I looked them over, read about them in the magazines and online, and knew what they were supposed to do. With AmiKit, it's your system, and there are a lot of unfamiliar programs included.
For example, I've added my WHDLoad games as a drive, but when I open up windows and look at the icons I have a mix of three or four different ones, and all in different styles. I used to have a program installed that I could run that would go through, check which icon was being used for the drawer, and change them all to the same image. I don't know what program is used for that in AmiKit, and I don't like to mess around with them too much as I don't know what the consequences are; I really don't want to have to reinstall the whole thing just because I trashed out my icons. That's the problem I had with changing my backdrop - I'm used to going to Prefs, opening WBPattern, and just changing the picture there, but it didn't work anymore, and I didn't know which program was over-riding my selection.
I think if someone could go through and make a text file that gave a short, concise description of all of the add-on programs and what they were for it would make the transition back into the Amiga much easier. For example, just in the Prefs folder, what is BGUI? How is it different from the GUI pref program? What about MUI? They seem to have selections for the same things (buttons, sliders, strings, etc.) How are the different? How do they interact with each other?
Don't get me wrong; I really like AmiKit - I think it's the best WinUAE enhancement available. I like how it's set up, and I like how it runs. I appreciate all of the hard work that's gone into it and that it's been made available at no cost. But I also think that it's a bit confusing for someone who doesn't have a recent background with the Amiga; my initial experience with computers was exclusively Commodore (C64 and Amiga) until around 1996 - I think I have a handle on the basics of the machine. Since then I've been out of the scene and don't know anything about developments to the system, and I've not had any luck in finding any websites that deal with using an Amiga. What I have found has either been the history of the Amiga, retro-gaming, or people involved with the current iteration of the system. I just think that if there was some information about the programs included with this distribution it would make it a lot easier to use.
