If I remember correctly MiNT isn't "MiNT is now TOS" anylonger. I think
Atari changed it back. :-)

Anyway, the facts is that some programs doesn't work with MiNT and
I think Cubase is one of those. Also having a good TOS in ROM wouldn't
realy be a problem, just the oposit. I do also belive that TOS 6 will
be like TOS 4.92 so it will take use of MiNT if it's installed. Also
the Milan has got a Flash-ROM so updating is just a matter of downloading
a file and run it. Not very hard and you will have a rock solid computer.

For Falcon's it's another matter, but just havibg a good TOS without bugs
would be very nice for me atleast.

Have you looked at hacking TOS for Nova?
