    Hey,

    Can I say that I am heavily anxious to see an x86 MorphOS :D One huge advantage of having an x86 MorphOS is the ability to finally port WINE into MorphOS and this will open huge libraries of games and applications from Windows right into MorphOS which is superb! MorphOS would be truly BETTER than Linux in terms of an alternative operating system. Running WINE in MorphOS would be even easier and much funner than running it in Linux and best part of it all...it could be a layer in the next release of MorphOS that you can treat running any windows applications or games as if it is in Windows directly itself. Just double click it and you will not even see or feel WINE is doing the works in the back-end it will look like it is a native MorphOS application and you can even have customized icons.info as if it is ported to MorphOS directly!

    WINE is NOT perfect.

    WINE is a bit Interlinked with Linux and Win DLLs and not an easy thing to port.

    I would rather have Libre Office for MOS then Wine.

    x86 MOS will NOT run on everything.

    Have all these in mind, enthusiasm is understandable.

    Check out this one to see why even a port to "x86" would not solve this easily: https://morph.zone/modules/newbb_plus/viewtopic.php?topic_id=11537&forum=12#124232
    So what you in fact need is MINE, not WINE. MINE as: MorphOS is not Windows. Because if you just want to port WINE then you also need to have Unix/Linux functionality in MorphOS. This will bloat up MorphOS. I don't want that.

    And better don't wait for MorphOS x86. x86 was replaced by AMD64, x64.

    Actually, that would be MINW ;-)

    Wine cannot run many Apps.
    Wine on macOS for Example, is not very useful.
    The only Game running on macOS-Wine I have found so far, is Trackmania Nations Forever.

    Most of us want MorphOS x86-64 badly. I don't care about a Wine type solution at all. If it happened, great, but not something I need. If we need Windows that bad on the same box, we can dual boot.

    WINE just wraps to Linux functions. The functionality has to be there in the underlying OS, which it isn't and never will be on MorphOS or any Amiga-like OS.

    The clue's in the name.

    WINE is nonsense.
    Use Linux and a MorphOS VM :-)

    Hmm what a good idea, for start , using a morphos wm inside of a minimal linux system with xen or other vitualisation, so we need only one driver for soundcard , one driver for graphic cards, a bit like in aros hosted....and with a small effort we can use linux apps inside morphos, so devs can take the more time they have to develop native and fantastic software.
    It can be amasing in fact :-)

    Morphitlon?

    Sounds cools, but I doubt thats they way the team wants to go, well maybe if the *nix underpinnings were as hidden and still integrated as they are with OSX.

    I won't hold my breath, heck I want even hold my f#### ;)
