Well at least AROS have someone new on documenting (me), so you already achieved something!

As a suggestion: Maybe AROS could use another evangelist? AFAIK head-priest Bloodline is mainly active on this board, and there's a few other Amiga sites out there.

I was very surprised to see that this thread had not fallen off the deep end when I came here today.  Ok, so I won't go away.  I guess what we really need is more money on the bounty.  Team Aros recently had a windfall when someone/copertion donated $1000 dollars to various bounties.  Wish we could get a few more of them.  Money, baby, we need money.
Sir, I believe that we have a problem with your brain being missing.  -Firefly-

Actually, I think you have missed my point.
I was just tring to show why His pleas are falling on
'Deaf Ears'. AROS is in a 'Catch 22' situation of their
own making. 68k is the way to break the circle.
Most of the guys with the abilities he was calling for
to work on AROS already have their pet projects.

Aros running on an Amiga is not the same as Amiga running
on AROS.

Yes, I understand AROS is open source.
I beleave you know about the 'C' group I started not long
ago. My reasons, simply put, are to bring 68k to AROS.
I know this is a massive undertaking for a person of my
very limited skills.
I may be totally full of crap and I'm sure I have no idea
what I'm getting into with this goal.
If you want something done 'do it yourself'.
Its a very very long road I've chosen, but if I don't start
now I'll never get there.

Sorry if I missed the point :-)

I do agree that 68k is something that would be of great psychological advantage. But I do think that our "chosen" approach is the best for now.

I have an idea that would be nice to try, but I don't have enough knowledge about certain parts of AmigaOS to do :-/

I just had another thought..not a new thought, but.....

Another thing that would probably help AROS is a 'Basic'
language. Something the 'Classic' masses can get into.

'SideWinder' is working on a new 'Basic' language simular
to 'AMOS' (if I understand correctly ), maybe his group
could be talked into porting it to AROS.
