Amiga & AROS

'Silly-SMP' is a project to determine "What are the minimal changes needed to AROS to support 'full' SMP? Is it even possible?"

[...]

This is Research with a capital 'R'.

But that '25% of the time' _does_ show that a full SMP system on AROS is possible.

This is quite a big deal for the Amiga world - and proves that, in my view, AROS has more of a future than AmigaOS will ever have: it's portable, and it's open source, so experiments like this are more likely to happen.

I ran this on a VM. Nice little OS, however I unfortunately don't have a practical use for it as yet.

With Java and Qt ported to it its useness would be increased! ;)

I think one of the former Amiga OS projects did have Qt3 ported.

True in some respects, but do we need another OS just to run Java and Qt based apps?

I think AROS will find it's own niche... ;)
