Jim, please. The ”mystery” wasn’t really wich OS AeonKit showed in the picture, and not what ”Novia” or ”IV” means.
The question is *WHY* AeonKit posted a picture of the OS where Workbench Screen is renamed Desktop screen, AmigaOS is renamed NoviaOS, 4 is renamed IV, Kickstart is renamed Kick, Workbench is renamed Work, MUI is renamed GUI, Warp3D is renamed Warp, MiniGL is renamed MiniG, SysMon is renamed monsys.
You used the word ”retarded” earlier in this thread. Could be. Could be a weird joke that nobody understands. Or it was a rational reason behind it. Which would be interesting.
Can't speak for Trevor, but I imagine that he and/or the person actually doing the work to produce the screen grab or altered photo, changed the names to confuse people and get them talking about it. If they had not changed the name from Workbench to Desktop, as well as the other few changes, it would have been too obvious that it was NOT a Linux distro, and in fact was AmigaOS4.1FE with a new graphic driver.
