Well yes.

I have some hope that AROS might reach a more usable state and run
natively on the Raspberry Pi.

Linux is still UNIX™, which is a complicated OS which requires a lot
of maintenance, whereas children kept Amigas running for years. AROS
on a £25/$30 computer could be a good fun/educational toy OS for kids.
