I see far less value in open sourcing AmigaOS that some people see to be able to see. What am I missing? Open sourcing doesn't magically make any code up-to-date, or even compilable. It doesn't magically bring along support for other hardware or software. It doesn't give you memory protection or SMP. It won't give you code integration with AROS. It probably doesn't even give you the Amiga name. I don't get the obsession with open sourcing, or the hatred against those still selling it. It seems a little unhealthy to me, especially when there's already an open source re-implementation that could really do with the extra support. With an open-source Amiga OS 3, there's a direct competitor with AROS, which will divide what miniscule resources remain in this community even further.
