TOS 2007

July 29, 2007 01:05PM
We have opensource version of TOS (EmuTOS), MiNT, AES (XaAES), VDI (fvdi), Desktop (Teradesk).

What are the chances for porting those to a new platform such a generic x86 hardware or maybe PPC (like Genesi Efika)? We can have a new native platform for the future. a JIT 680x0 emulator could be included to provide backwards compatibility -- much the way Apple migrate from 680x0 to PPC and then to Intel.

I am certain that a $99 Efika board (motherboard, sound, LAN, USB, PPC, and 128M RAM) would be faster than any previous Atari or TOS Clone box.

Seriously, how much of TOS / MiNT is really tied to the legacy hardware. Much of it is C.

The Coldfire project is nice, but I think it still limits us to 680x0 era,

Anyone have any thoughts on this?
