There was a short period when CUSA openly embraced AROS:
There are and were some dedicated AROS computers, but all were/are pointless as one could use just dumpster dived HW...
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.
