Agreed. Hardware-compatibility doesn't mean much for me, the only
thing I use that's hardware-specific is the virtual terminals. But
since the sources are publicly available (one of the major advantages
of using MiNTOS and not MagiC...) I guess I could write a
graphics-card driver for it if I really need it.

This is pure speculation, but since they apparently have the sources
for TOS, I can only guess that they have the AES 4.10/TOS 5 sources as
well. "Multi OS" might be a updated version of MultiTOS, or perhaps
they've added Geneva-like AES-multitasking to TOS 5.
