-Wake up! The Amijoe hardware is simply NOT finished!
I assume you are refering to the A1200 hardware? What information are you basing that on. The poster you were responding to appears to have it straight from the horses mouth, so unless you can back yourself up with some verifiable sources, you're going to appear to not know what you're talking about.
I've never seen nor heard any verifiable reports of the H&P 68k emulator (that's the one you want them to use, right?) being 1) Complete 2) Faster than current 060's. From the rumors I've heard, it may reach @040 speeds, but it doesn't have the capability to store translated M68k instructions in memory, so it isn't going to get a whole lot faster unless you step up the processor power a HUGE amount, or you start caching instructions.
I would greatly welcome any verifiable information from H&P about these issues, but I doubt they are forthcoming. Common sense dictates that the only reason H&P isn't publishing info about a project they've supposedly devoted significant time to is that 1) The 68k emulation is incomplete and/or 2) it is so slow that they don't dare publish anything about it (in which case, they SHOULD go back and add in instruction caching, if they haven't already).
-And if Metabox is doing their own 68K emulation, I wonder where they suddenly --got the coders from.
There's plenty of them out there :)
-In any case, forget about running any Hyperion games then because most likely --they will introduce yet another PPC kernel.
Why do you say that? Unless you have some info about what they're doing that you'd like to share with us, I don't see any evidence to suggest it will be incompatible with WarpOS or anything else.
