> You may not realise that programs and libraries compiled for x86 can be used in Amithlon with no special setup
Of course I know that you can extend Amithlon with x86 code. That's not the point. The point is that you can not writen a native AmigaOS for the x86 platform, with native endianess, like AROS, and mix that with an integrated m68k JIT using m68k byte order that gives the m68k code seamless access to the OS.
> Well, Bernie's emulator does work 100% perfectly, in both Amithlon and UAE, and AFAIK the UAE source code is freely available, so you can see how it is done.
Those are emulators in a box and that solves the problems with endianess: The emulator does not work "in" UAE , it "is" UAE and contains AmigaOS. AmigaOS is completely trapped inside the emulator. The emulator creates an environment with consistent m68k endianess. x86 Code running on the x86 side, if any, has to use the same m68k endianess if it interfaces with AmigaOS. That's an entirely different scenario from a native AmigaOS on x86 hardware (which would be the "more than an emulator" thing).
