I think its "funny" (not really) to call SDL browsers and x11 apps "Amiga Apps".
Who cares what you call them. If you run MorphOS, and mostly use MorphOS and Amiga apps, but occasionally want to use Abiword or The Gimp, isn't it convenient if you can run them in MorphOS without having to quit YAM/SimpleMail/Sputnik/whatever to do so? Thats not as good as a port that uses MUI or whatever, but it is still more convenient than quitting all your apps, booting into linux, doing what you wanted to do, quitting again, and rebooting again.Quote:
Native takes work and time, but it's what justify the MorphOS development in the first place. If your idea of MorphOS is to run x11 apps and/or SDL apps (in a fundamental way, not as some gimmick) then there is no point in continuing this platform
OS4 has had Cygnix for a while, but still people create OS4 native software. Having a decent X11 server doesn't stop people developing native apps.
BTW, OWB is not a simple SDL port and hasn't been for a long time; it has a full integrated ReAction interface, ARexx port, tooltypes, and a whole bunch of os4 specific changes to the rendering code.
