    So in the end "supporting" AROS wasn't really anymore than preinstalling VICE was for supporting 8Bit C=.

    Most buyers just selected the Windows option. The so called "CommodoreOS" never got past a curiosity.

    I'll admit to that sin myself, I use Windows in preference to OSX/MacOS or Linux.
    I will not pay the premium demanded for Apple hardware, when I know it will fail or be obsoleted just as quickly or quicker than commodity Windows hardware.
    And Linux never seems quite finished.

    What I want, is what no one will give me. A quick booting, streamlined OS based on a micro kernel.
    Sound familiar?

    Yes, I think four dual-threaded 1.8 GHz e6500 cores can cope with two single-threaded 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 cores. On a per-core/thread base, they should be about on par I think.

    You mean the MorphOS team hasn't started yet? ;-)

    POWER9 with comparable single-core performance would be nice nonetheless :-)

    Web browsing on platforms without (fast) JS JIT and video decoding on platforms without GPU acceleration should require even faster CPU performance than on platforms that have these things :-)
