Fleecy writes: AmigaOS4 will only run on hardware that conforms to the zico
specification - currently that is the Eyetech AmigaOne (which also offers full backwards compatibility with AA chipset access applications) and the bPlan AmigaOne, which will run AmigaOS4 apps and older apps which use retargetable coding. We look forwards to other Amiga hardware companies developing zico based solutions and are actively talking to them.

|In reply to Comment 43 (Graham):
Non-the-less, it is easliy proveable that the internal architecture
of the PPC is considerably more efficient for many types of things
than the x86 varietys, especially the intel chips... the AMD
varietys of x86 are better than the intels.
But, as someone has allready pointed out, it is not that big a deal
as the Amiga OS will eventually support both of these and more.
So, people will be able to run whatever they like. (AND, the
arguments over which is best will be much easier to escalate as
the Amiga will run on both asnd thus provide direct comparison)
