Because none will program for an emulator (like UAE and its derivates showed). X86 half ports (but the word "port" is tooo big) are 4-5, while a new platform with clear programming approach like Mos is able to create a lots of recompiles, ports, new soft or optimizations of old amiga software (frogger is the maximum example of that). If here we continue to compare New Os and hardware to emulators ... well Eyetech, Genesi, Hyperion and MOS team should close their activities and pass on the Windows market, m8.
ACTUALLY also amithlon on my XP 2200+ is way slower than Mos1.4 on G3 600 and I think that only on a P4 3000 with HT on (aka with a MB with Springdale or Cantherwood) could beat it, and My doubts still rest due the fact that in MOS only the program itself is emulated (by trance that is really SUPER-FAST!) while all libraries are PPC native. Under Amithlon except little parts(20% for Bernd) ALL must be emulated! First of all the fundamental DOS library and Exec that are native on MOS.
Cmq you can choose between the support for new and alternative companies and the support for Windows market.
I can only say that thx to Genesi, Bplan, Mos team I have a new computer capable to run an "amigalike" os fast and clean.
