> amithlon could have been much much more than emulator
It could never have been much more than an emulator. x86 and Amiga m68k have different endianess, that pretty much means that the OS is trapped inside the emulator. The approach used with OS4 and MOS - seamless integration of 68k code into a native OS, with access to all native OS structures - is IMHO not possible: In a mixed endianess environment, you can not use simple byte swapping code in the emulator to deal with byte order (or can you?!). Amithlon was a dead end, it doesn't matter that it's gone. In fact it's good, its death accelerates the migration to OS4 and MOS. About AROS: it would never have expected it to get where it is already but still ... a lot of work for six people.
