That is exactly what is being done.
The business plan is only one part of the equation. You don't need to be in the startup/investing game for as long as I have, to learn that investors invest in teams more than they invest in ideas with a good business plan.

Unfortunately, the global pandemic has set my plans back quite a bit, but I'm looking forward to getting back to assembling the team in 2022.

@agami,

Good Luck with that, governments have already decided that lockdown is the answer even though it doesn't help at all..........

To get new people less than forty years old, future Amiga have to be unix based.
Otherwise it will be just worse retro. Slow outdated and different from retro that we know.
It should be just unix -> Intuition -> mui.
Everything below Intuition should be cut off.

Or we may stay retro. Only real or fpga big endian cpu. 68k or ppc. No x86 or arm.

Fair enough, I always doubted the sanity of java developers...

No, they are not wasting time, they're having fun - you should try that some day, to have fun!

there is no cheap 3d graphics for 68k


I don't need that, really.

Michal even plans to merge both at the price of cutting amiga compatibility where necessary. What you describe is called "Aros hosted", Aros running as application on a host environment, f.e., on Linux. But there was no big interest in it.

To get really new users and expecially attract developers you must offer something really new. Just intuition or mui certainly is not enough.

pistorm turns Amiga into power supply and keyboard for rpi. It is waste of time.

on commodity hardware cannot be twenty years behind commodity os.
aros is too slow and outdated. nobody need win98 level os on x86 or arm.

No, it is emulating a 68k CPU for a very cheap price!

There aren't any apps to speak of. Interest would possibly be higher if there were.

In any case, AROS hosted on Linux isn't what @ppcamiga1 is describing.
