"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.
