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?

It was a beautiful time back then, when I had an Amiga500. And I'd like to keep that way.

Please AmigaOS guys, let the old lady rest in peace!!!

The AmigaOS developers should put their effort into Haiku, if they want something similar on a x86 platform.

No. As much as I love Haiku, it doesn't have that AmigaOS feel to it. And they don't even have an alpha released, while AmigaOS / MorphOS are stable.

Still, between the stubbornness of not porting AmigaOS / MorphOS to x86 and helping Haiku, I'd prefer the latter.

Well, don't be so quick. Allow people to do what they want to, not what you would like to see them doing. If you're right, for sure there will be plenty of followers, am I right?
