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?

The Amiga was far ahead from the other computers 25 years ago. So, in order to be the leader again, Amiga needs the following:

1) full 64-bit
2) raytraced 3d graphics at 60 FPS
3) fully multicore - thousands of cores
4) programmed with a modern functional programming language - all processes to be garbage collected
5) an SSD storage system.
6) fully distributed - hooking the machine to the network allows the computer to share its computing power with all the other machines on it
7) a user interface which renders stuff on it as realistically as possible...meaning true WYSIWYG.
8) voice recognition.
9) an object-oriented database file system.
