Can't design your own OS? Just clone someone elses.

Quite a few OSes have drawn upon AmigaOS for inspiration (BEOS, AtheOS to name a couple) in some way. Many have copied, borrowed, stolen ideas from MacOS. The Win95 look and feel has been cloned by many Linux window managers.

But why clone an entire operating system?

I'd rather see something new, rather than a pale imitation with a few bells and whistles bolted on.

Isn't MorhpOS at somepoint supposed to leave its Amiga roots behind altogether, and go its own way? Q-os(?)
