AMS: because RO is leaner and faster, it would start up along with a RO DVD player in much less time than other x86-based OSes, give you a nice user interface that's actually fun to use and still have the required performance to decode DVDs in software where graphics card manufacturers have not made their documentation/drivers public?

To make things perfectly clear, I'm talking about running RO (or a RO-compatible OS) unhosted on x86 hardware, which is very different from emulating it on top of an existing x86 OS such as WinXP or a full Linux + X-Window system. I have no interest in the latter.
