Why not make a fork of Hatari and EmuTOS, and make that to one single project. Changes can be made in Hatari so it includes the EmuTOS source code, and then rewrite the VDI calls in EmuTOS, so VDI calls write directly to the screen and don't run 68000 code, but use the graphics card with hardware acceleration instead when possible via the use or SDL calls directly. That may improve graphics operations a lot, maybe about 10 to 100 times faster. You get rid both the slowdowns by not using a CPU emulation and using the graphics card instead of the native CPU (the x86 processor).
That would make a really fast platform agnostic OS, to run programs in.
Is this consider? It would make the Atari platform like new again. With graphics performance a lot like Android or a lot better by running on a modern x86 computer with a good graphics card.
