AROS is another way of getting a modern and properly free/OSS amiga OS, the icAROS-live distribution is fairly stable on any old x86 machine. the problem you'd run into running software from an amiga floppy on a post-floppy-drive PC like a mac is that USB floppy drives aren't built to handle anything but standard PC/mac 1.44mb format so they tend to be extremely hit or miss. if you want to read or write amiga format floppies (880K double density IIRC, same disks that were 720K on DOS and 800k on mac) you'd need at minimum an old PC with a floppy drive and IIRC DOS rawrite, linux with dd, or possibly just AROS although i've never installed it on a computer with a floppy drive.
