Amiga & AROS The AROS distribution Icaros Desktop has made its next step towards compatibility with legacy Amiga workbench applications, including an entire AROS enviroment compiled for the classic Amiga platform, which is almost binary compatible with the original Amiga OS 3.1 (and its extensions). When the user needs an old program, he or she only has to fire up the AROS M68K environment and run the application. The Amiga virtual machine can optionally be set to run at startup like a system service.

I think you're being overly critical of the hardware support. Sure it's narrow in scope, but so is Apple's hardware support or any other alternative non-*nix OS for that matter. Right now I have Icaros Desktop running on a Dell D800 laptop and everything is fully supported. Sure, I had to buy a different wireless card but that only cost me a whopping $6 USD.
