    Certainly you must deal with MUI, but all of the game ports that rely on OpenGL use virtually no Amiga calls what so ever.


    Exactly.
    For memory menagment, files, network, opengl almost everbody use standard c functions and almost nobody use amiga os calls directly.
    There is no reason to keep exec, dos, devices, filesystems, bsdsocket after move to non big endian cpu.
    Everything below amiga gui i graphics should be cut off and droped.
    All drawback of original amiga os like lack of resource tracking, memory protection, suport of multicore, drivers, posix compatyblity should be solved at time of ISA switch.
    AROS x86 is crap because it has no source and binary compatybility but still has all this problems.
    It is not too late for Morphos to make Morphos x86 really good.

    A Unix proponent despising the BSD socket API? That's funny :-)

    That's the current plan as I understand it.

    Actually, the graphics & cybergraphics APIs are so disconnected from what current graphics systems can offer, those should be 1st things to forget.

    Gosh... you realised being unpleasant to make your points made you look bad. Well done!





    I dont really care what it looks like. LMAO.


    And that's why MOS isnt getting many new users....

    Came back for a look around 4 years later... I see nothing changes. See you in another 4 years (if MOS is still pootling along!)
