Linux

Use a Linux emulator, and use the Newtl (warning, link is broken!) system to upload (or download!) packages (and also communicate `soups' - a bit like files for the Newton). Once again, you need to have somehow uploaded other packages to the Newton before you use Linux, in particular, a program called `Sloup' needs to be on your Newton.

Another Linux program which may be of interest is NewtonLink which transfers information between the Newton and Linux programs. Or is is this the newer link?

I don't know anyone who has run Newtl on Amiga Linux. It is just a theoretical possibility. (I don't have an MMU to try Linux out)
