I said something other.

I am using RISC OS as my primary Operating System, and working on a system to allow runing TOS based operating system almost natively on the Raspberry Pi 2B/3B.

On the second mentioned (running TOS almost native):
I am working on a system that is basicaly a small kernel that provides the USB and Ethernet drivers written for the ARM, as well as providing a starting enviroment and most of the BIOS and XBIOS functions. On top of that I am implementing a very simple 68030 JIT emulator for the ARMv7/8 CPU designed to be used with out another OS (other than those parts already mentioned).

There will also be a means of calling ARM native code from the 68K enviroment (using an XBIOS extension) and calling the OS running on the 68K enviroment from ARM native code.

Once complete this will become my main OS on the RPi 3B. I do not own any system with an IA32/AMD64 CPU newer than an 80486, so my main computer is a Raspberry Pi 3B.

Yes it will be released under the MIT license, and once I get it fare enough it will go on a public github repo under my account.
