"sutro" quotes this page on Eyetech's server that says: Elate is currently available on a number of processors - including x86 and PowerPC - and is also available as a 'hosted' OS (at about 50% efficiency) under Linux - and this is the environment to be used for the Developer System.. The Blizzard PPC/xVision version still needs some fine tuning - currently being undertaken by Haage & Partner - but is expected to be released in a couple of months. On its release this (PPC/xVision) software will form the main upgrade path for the current 'classic' Amiga user, whilst maintaining compatibility with 680x0-based software.

Oboy... arne't you talking about the wrong thing now, compareing the CPUs of the two systems. Shouldn't you see this more as a future for those who has a PPC/xVision combo on their Amigas and a cheap way for those of them who code for the Amiga environment to move over to the next generation of AmigaOS. It's not a question if it will be faster or slower, better or worst, it's a way to keep the Amigans which are left. How many times haven't you heared a cry for something new, like a PPC native AmigaOS, new hardware and so on. Now whe have got that (half of it, the software).
Why don't you ask Amiga to support J90 from Cray, there you would get really CPU power.
