AROS research on SMP

  By Thom Holwerda - Posted on 2013-08-23 12:02:20 UTC at http://OSNews.com

'Silly-SMP' is a project to determine "What are the minimal changes needed to AROS to support 'full' SMP? Is it even possible?"

[...]

This is Research with a capital 'R'.

But that '25% of the time' _does_ show that a full SMP system on AROS is possible [http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=38068&forum=47].

This is quite a big deal for the Amiga world - and proves that, in my view, AROS has more of a future than AmigaOS will ever have: it's portable, and it's open source, so experiments like this are more likely to happen.
