ABI-V1 alpha release, when that's reached they will have completed something I have (in the past) doubted would ever be finished.
So yes, I would give AROS the nod as number 2 in that placement (with a real possibility of gaining number 1 position as it improves).
But as all three OS share a common base, I'm not sure its even fair to consider them as competitors, rather there branches of a common tree.
Pick your flavor and run with it.
All seem to have a promising future.
Its hard to believe there are this many options this far after the 'demise' of the Amiga.
For a 'dead' system, there sure is a lot of development going on.

Like I said, the same people who bitched because Amiga Inc didn't actually do anything will now bitch because CommodoreUSA is doing something.

No, it's not rebuilding the precious dead platform, but does anyone reading this thread REALLY think technology that was dead-ended 16 years ago is worth trying to revive?  I say that we should just enjoy our "classic" platform, or even indulge in one of the new flavors if you really think it worth the aggravation of buggy software and "paying extreme amounts for beta-level hardware", but let's stop deluding ourselves about "the future of the Amiga", shall we?

Well, if anyone wants, they can buy my "amiga". Its a generic dual core PC with 4 gigs of RAM, running linux.
 
The price is only 900 dollars, which is a STEAL in amiga terms, and I'll put amiga stickers on everything.

Install AROS on it and I'll give you a one off permission to sell it as an official Commodore Amiga. :)

Only if it comes with Amiwm (real screen dragging since 1996) and Worker installed :)
