You really have no clue, do you! EXEC is ignorant on how an x86 processor
works, so it needs the layer that Amithlon provides. The Linux microkernal is
just simply there to get the damn thing to boot!

Didn't you earlier state that Amiga Inc complained that Amithlon was illegal
because it used unlicensed IP? Even though that statement is ever bit as
incorrect as this latest version you spout, you really need to learn to keep
your stories straight!
