Ah, maybe I was a bit unclear. I never meant that porting the kernel would be the only step required to get things off the ground. My point was only that I do believe it's better to focus on FreeMiNT/XaAES than to put lots of energy into getting a fully working TOS/GEM-environment.

Every now and then I read these posts about re-inventing the wheel or putting tons of energy into something that in the end wouldn't constitute a new step for the platform, hence my post.

About the emulation part. Porting requires major work, but I'd much rather have a native system with the possibility of running applications under emulation when necessary. I've done some experiments in this area myself and it could work for quite a few applications. I don't know what impact different byte ordering would have in this context, I haven't really thought of that. The aim of my project was more like having a "last resort" for applications on a ColdFire system.
