Interesting.... In a german Amiga forum the self-proclaimed Natami "spokesman" (BigGun) claimed it would be absolutely no problem to make everything Coldfire compatible. He even claimed it would be absolutely no problem to disassemble the complete Kickstart in a week(!) and add the necessary Coldfire fixes (His words: "I feel sorry for everyone who needs longer than a week to disassemble the Kickstart.").
Once me and other people told him that and why this is nonsense, he left the forum in a rather childish way.
He even placed a bet of 1000 EUR that he can disassemble and fix the Kickstart in a week. Needless to say, once I accepted the bet (well, would have been easily earned 1000EUR ;D) he remained silent.
Interesting that the Coldfire idea is now dropped, I'd like to see what Mr.BigGun has to say about that now.
