"This is a porting of the multipurpose multiplatform library SDL (simple direct media layer), created by Sam Lantiga. This library let you create programs that works perfectly on a large range of OSs (Windows 9x/ME/2000/NT, Linux x86/PPC/Alpha, MacOS, xxxBSD, Irix, Solaris, BeOS, AmigaOS...) without any modification! The library is able to handle window/fullscreen video output (using blitter if present, also in the Amiga version), sound (with AHI in the amiga version), keyboard/mouse/joystick events, threads, audio tracks on CDs, endianness and many other things. To see what SDL can do go to the official page...take a look also for instance at the HUGE games section, many of them can be recompiled on AmigaOS with a few minutes of work! With the help of the Amiga community and SDL we'll can bring a lot of new apps and games to our beloved Amiga!" Download the MorphOS port here.

That's very very cool actualy. Just have that lib, and software will work everywhere!
Does that provide OS independence and hardware independence at the same time?!
Thinking what I am?

No. If you are lucky it will just require a small amount of work and a recompile to work on the Amiga, but on larger projects it isn't hard to imagine that the porting effort will be hard still, just not as hard as it would have been before.

No it wont magically make larger project OS or hardware indepenmdent. It sure makes porting easier. But in many larger projects porting will still require lot's of work and recompiling.
