In my opinion it is not meant to be "used". Especially Wanderer (AROS WB), it is too bloated for m68k. I only consider it a proof of concept and ROM replacement boot loader for programs that take over the system.

Requirements are simple: 68000 or better and enough RAM.

Some programs work, some don't work (bug in some feature, missing feature, bug in program that only triggers under aros and so on..)

Speed is not a goal because one major reason for lack of speed is gcc m68k support which is not that good. (optimization isn't that good, weird looking code at least when compiling for plain 68000, register function parameters are not supported and so on). (EDIT: This is not the only reason and may not be the major reason but there are too many other reasons that makes it pointless. Premature optimization is bad)
