First of all, sorry to criticise.........but....
I really don't get why this is given priority.
What do you gain from this when you could run AROS in an Image anyway?
I would have thought a higher priority would be 68k emulator integration, even if it was just overlaying os3.x windows using a transparency technique.

@ BigBentheAussie:

Speed? Had you ever seen Aros running on top of Linux? The 68k bounty integrations is bigger, ever wonder that if he did not pick it was because he didn't feel at ease to do it, after all we have a 55$+23 attributed against a 2330$+75 one don't we? I think there's no developer being lost in the process to what is perceived by some as the major next step to be taken, in the meanwhile we get AROS running on yet more hardware, and we're happy.
