I think most people would take aranym if they want a high speed tos clone.
Apple either will run into problems cause now they must tell why selling expensive HW based in Taiwan technology, while with EFI "emulation" on every PC MAC OS will run. Perhaps some Kernel patches are needed, but it runs.
I am either have doubts to get back the spirit of the 80s, just by writing a "new OS" based on TOS idea on an Intel technology.
The 80s, the ST was more. It was a lean but effective HW concept, based on an effective revolutionary OS (bad coded by DR ... ) equipped with an elegant CPU, the 68K. World has never seen before such a smart easy to program and effective uC.
So what I wanna tell, is ... built a CPU compatible with 68k... nx100Mhz ... fpga .... adapt TOS/GEM, add graphic chip either in fpga .... 24bit color ...... SD card HD ...etc.etc.
However this is time costly, most of us are 30+, having familiy children .....
I must wait unitl I am retired to start such projects ...
