	Ahh.... yes, the loader is rather slow. Even with lc1 in memory
it takes a couple of seconds to load.  That is a definate No No, since
improvement would mean a complete revamping of the system.

	I agree.  The filesystem should have been the CORE of the Amiga.
I'm not saying that all OS's need to have the filesystem as a core, but
on the Amiga, it would have been a giant forward leap.  Right now, the fs
seems to be only half implimented.

Somebody posted to the net that I was not being specific enough.

My dream of the Amiga OS: (Definately Berkeley UNIX Biased)
	(A) UNIX like filesystem
	(B) Screens, Windows implimented w/  /dev/ device drivers
	(C) I like the extended file-name idea (con:0/0...), put it in

	I believe in separation between user and hardware, through 
file descriptor's and ioctl's, not through system structure's.
