I think so... Why continue only on big endian if WE rewrite the whole operating system breaking the backward compatibility ? We must introduce many features like memory protection and smp and...
Compatibility does NOT have to be sacrificed if we run new apps in a separate box (outside Abox).
They would not be integrated, which mean that the same thing (separated new and old binaries and their data) could be achieved by running the *old* environment in a separate box instead, like UAE. This correctly brings the primary focus to the new OS with the evolved features, and the legacy compatibility becomes even higher since also the Amiga HW is "present" through emulation.
MorphOS is Amiga done right!
MorphOS NG will be AROS done right!
