@Fl@sh

aos4-API and MorphOS are different

they are both even different to 3.1-API

how do you want to "unify" them?

And additionally vampire is hardware based on FPGA, it is in no way related to OS

Re:different CPU architectures

AROS supports x86 and ARM as well as 68k. It has ports of many of the open-source software packages from AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS. It doesn't have a bytecode yet but you can get that off the shelf from WebAssembly or some similar technology like Hollywood applets.

What Gunnar wants is to bring all 68k software under the Vampire roof and try to leave the others in the dust as far as amount of software and has a good head start in that direction considering the number of titles that run on either AmigaOS3 or EmuTOS yet is switching to AROS 68k to escape the legal quagmire.

Re:P96 on SAGA

P96 is a kluge to get AmigaOS3 to run chunky modes. With the adoption of AROS, both chunky and planar modes work but slowly using non-P96 drivers.

Re:future os for Vampire

Gunnar and the Apollo team might want to split off from general AROS to get more graphics performance at the expense of source compatibility. This will back the Vampire into a corner with no upgrade paths.

If you want to have a bytecode that runs on multiple architectures, stick with AROS for your Amiga stuff but be prepared for the Vampire not adopting some future features like SMP.
