I wouldn't say that. I was sooo happy when I found out my PARCP, developed
under MiNT with minix-fs worked so well under MagiC with V-FAT! I was
afraid I wouldn't be able to program the V-FAT file system handling - you
can imagine how much I was surprised when I found out it worked without
any changes, just thanks to MiNTlibs. So, I would like to even improve
compatibility of MiNTlibs on all three OSes - MiNT, MagiC and TOS.
