  Great news!
  Seems like things are moving along on the AROS side.

Very nice. This is nice to follow. Hope AROS can be my only OS when my Vampire v.4 arrives.

Going to be amazing once they get past the basics .. and start adding 68080/Vampire specific tweaks and enhancements to AROS that utilize AMMX and such.. that's when its really going to surpass AOS

Yep, really nice..
It somehow feels like the final destination of AROS has always been the Vampire cards, without knowing it... ;)

Ok, so I'll ask the obvious:

Not long ago, it sounded like the AROS effort was going to implode because the key developers needed to refocus on their own priorities and the supporting bounties were anemic.

Has the situation changed for the better?

yes ;)

there are two key developers active now (there are more but the two are the most experienced with deep aros knowledge) and more or less all developers are today concentrating on aros 68k and vampire. These two developers got V4, another one has a A600 with V2.

Simply: People got Vampires and got really entusiastic. Watch the progress :) Seems that bounty sys was right!

actually the best bounty is to support the devs directly. apollo irc channel used to have a hint who is to support.
