    Amiga isn't SMP compatible, and "Silly SMP" isn't Amiga compatible, it's as simple as that. Sure, if you have to *recompile* all the apps for your OS (or run them in UAE - which again is an Amiga environment, hence it's not SMP compatible) like on most AROS systems, not to mention ARIX, *then* it's a different matter! But this is very different from the environment that MorphOS (or OS4) offers today. And if the Amiga legacy/binary compatibility is to be dropped (in MorphOS) anyway in favor of new features that can't fit into Amiga, then why not implement these things in a *clean* and *proper* way, built from ground up, instead of a "hackish" way that is just, well... Silly? I respect the effort from a "just for fun, lets get our hands dirty and explore how far we can take this" point of view (nothing wrong with that, especially not in an AROS context), but from a design point of view for real, end-user systems, it's a different matter. I think the best thing with "Silly SMP" is its name!
