Amiga & AROS Despite the recent emergence of several new ways to actually run AmigaOS 4.0, the supply of machines is still extremely small, and not very future proof. As such, one of the most recurring questions within the Amiga community is why don't they port the darn thing to x86?

There also also people who claim that moving AmigaOS4 to x86 would mean the end of the Amiga operating system, because it would not be able to compete with other x86 operating systems such as Linux and Windows. This seems like a rather odd reasoning to me
Why? It'll be no longer any Amiga. Neither Amiga hardware, nor Amiga OS (x86 AmigaOS-like OS instead). Perhaps indeed the better option would be to just use Linux with especially prepared fvwm2 theme (to have AmigaOS "look&feel")?
