    Thanks for the info, and thanks for doing the demo as well! Impressive! :-)

    So for now it's just a fun demo, please don't interpret it as more than that.

    Got it! :-)


    This is basically a demo that's made up of components that are being developed with the goal of eventually reaching MorphOS NG.

    It would be interesting to hear about what this will be? The ambitions and goals, broadly speaking at least. Please? ;-)


    The kernel that powers this system is a new kernel written by yours truly. In the demo system on display here, it is (of course) running as 100% native AMD64 code and, yes, in 64 bit mode. The kernel also runs on both PPC32 and PPC64, and again as native 64 bit code on the latter.

    The current demo system - and may I remind you that this is just a demo - runs a mixture of native AMD64 code and existing PowerPC code.

    So the Amiga binary compatibility will remain? Will this mean that the whole MorphOS NG will have a 31-bit addressing limitation, single core, etc? Or that you are actually developing new stuff outside the “A-box”? If so, how will new and old stuff work together? Like applications, drivers and other resources on either sides of the box wall, how will they interact?
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)
