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 O/S should be virtualized

It should not run in 80x86 or anything else. It should run on bytecode, and interpreted to the native format on the fly.

In this way, the O/S can be transferred any machine an interpreter exists.
