AROS Scene could learn from Haiku OS.. Haiku OS seems to be the most advanced alt. OS ATM.

What can we learn from HAIKU OS?

React OS is also very well organized!

Seems to me that Anarchy kills itself!

Anarchist Research Operating System!

After having tried to install LLVM on a single-threaded architecture called WASI for the past month, trying to support a single-threaded multitasker in this day and age is nearly impossible.

No, the last one is Windows.

Haiku gets its drivers from BSD mostly and there is a lot of stuff that comes with the multithreaded kernel.  Unfortunately GCC seems to have fallen into bitrot on 32-bit architectures.  On the Haiku forums a topic to drop 32 bit x86 appeared just this morning.  Things are not all roses with Haiku either because 32-bit Haiku is binary compatible with BeOS and 64-bit not.

How to apply this to AROS?  68k AROS has been facing bitrot from compiler makers. ABI0 is also 32-bit only on x86 using GCC.  Unless some way to use WebAssembly to implement drivers emerges, AROS and Haiku are both screwed.
