This hardware project is not specifically aimed at the Amiga community. Why would the Linux and free software enthusiasts who are driving this project care about closed-source OS4? You claimed this project would be in need of convincing OS and driver developers, and I told you the hardware essentially already has this in the form of Linux and Linux drivers. You then made this about OS4 for no apparent reason.

This project is aimed at the intersection between Power(PC) and GNU/Linux enthusiasts, howsoever tiny. In case you didn't know this, now you do :-) It's also in the posting that started this thread, btw.
