As all the calls are the same, I'd expect the bulk of calls could be handled by the x86-native OS, so in theory you'd have a solution similar to Amithlon but even faster - and of course a development path with new apps being written.

Now for a quick burst of Amiga fanboy dreaming:
Amiga fanboy dreaming over - you're safe now:

If you don't have source, then see my previous post about AmiBridge. Won't work for games though!

Progress can be followed on -
The Bounty -
Thanks for all the info, guys!

The AROS ports of UAE I have saved on a hard disk somewhere... But AmiBridge is set to make VmwAROS much more useful.

Also, it's great to see E-UAE being extended by o1i. It's such a long time without news from Richard Drummond on E-UAE.

And Charlie, I always have empathy for Amiga fanboy dreaming. Don't we all do it? If I'd bought an A1200 when they first appeared I would have been astounded by what it could do compared to the PC systems I was using at that time. They could have had the world in their hands at that time. I often wonder what better systems we would all be using now if things had turned out differently...
