but making AmigaOS tied to the BIOS codes is a copy protection scheme, whether you'd like to admit it or not.
AmigaOS is not tied to the AmigaOne BIOS. It will work fine with any BIOS (though that BIOS should support RDB formatted hardisks and FFS2 - for obvios reasons).

Yes there is copy protection code - BUT IT IS NOT PART OF THE BIOS. The proposed solution for Mac or Pegasos machines would be to put the copy protection code into an USB dongle. These machines do not have the A1 BIOS - but THAT WON'T STOP THEM FROM RUNNING AMIGAOS4.

The AmigaOne ROM contains two different "programs": The A1 BIOS and the copy protection code. I really hope you understand the difference between "ROM" and "BIOS".
