By a strict definition if it's "non-system programming" it will not be using system libraries such as these at all. But as mr.spiv pointed out there is a continuum between that and full use of the OS...

It's made from mostly generic off-the-shelf hardware. The OS was clearly a rushed afterthought too. So it's no mystery how it was done so quickly.

AROS is nowhere near 3.1 let alone any modern version. Even its own page says it is only 82% of 3.1. If it was any good everyone would be using it. To say it has surpassed anything is ludicrous when...

Unfortunately AROS is much too far behind recent versions of AmigaOS, and that gap is only widening. Also its performance leaves much to be desired.
