if anybody who wants to contribute to "amiga" needs to write his own operating system replacement first, or at least its critical components, then the situation is clearly ridiculous.


You mean like the way the entire ReAction subsystem is missing from AROS?

well, yes, as long as there is any software that requires it. thats the reason having aros 68k in place as example, otherwise we could simply go on using updated amiga kickstat versions.

luckily there isnt much that actually requires reaction/class act. aweb comes to my mind so far.

classact works on Aros 68k and can easily be added (as MUI 3.8 and MUI 4 and other toolkits). Reaction might work too but I never tested it because it is closed and only available from 3.9

You could contribute to OpenReaction instead of spewing bs about AROS every chance you get.   It's fine if you don't want to but either put up or shut up. =]

Who needs Reaction on Aros? :)

Besides... ClassAct works on Aros so Reaction might too (not tested because almost no software available on 68k)

Only on 68K.   Every other Arch needs a replacement as you very well know.   I have no use for it.  However if someone is so desperate for it they can contribute.

Yes of course but if he is not precise enough it includes 68k branch. So I had to correct him :)

id tend to support such a project, though the repository is set up by salass in 2010, and apparently apart of initial commits nothing has been done. now that he is os4 developer/contributor it might be difficult for him to commit to that project in a clean room environment, since he is certainly bound by appropriate agreements such as nda. him contributinghis virtual drive solution  to aros is another matter, that doesnt fall under such restrictions as it is his genuine development afaik.

so, i dont expect any development on this front any soon.

What would make sense is implementing classact, bgui etc libraries and classes in Zune.

BGUI library exists in Aros (all versions) already

I know, that's exactly why I mention it, would it not be nice if all BGUI apps adhere to Zune prefs and very much behave like Zune apps? Gtlayout is another candidate.

On a similar note... Remember back in the days when ASL requesters sucked and Reqtool came to rescue with RTpatch? At some point ASL overtook Reqtools and it would be really nice with an aslpatch that hijacks all calls to reqtools et al.
