I'm not sure that adding more developers will remedy that, though, without restarting AROS development from scratch?
Aros 68k inherits everything including the weak points and speed is a issue there. On X86 you have not this problem because the hardware is so fast, even on UAE when running it on not too old hardware you have no problems. There are certain components responsible that have to be improved. I do not expect it to beat 3.X or older on real hardware but hopefully to get it as good as possible.
