It's not a MetaDOS clone, it's a subset of MetaDOS. It contains all you need
to load .BOS drivers, while the GEMDOS parts (that do not play nicely with
MiNT and MagiC) have been taken out.

Could you please explain what you're trying to say? SPIN uses BOS drivers
for audio functionality. MetaXBS loads these drivers. There are no known
issues with MetaXBS under MiNT.
