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.

What do you want AmigaOS 4.x to run on existing PPC cards?
It's time to go to G3/G4! We are enough late!
Yes of course you'll be able to run AmigaOS 4.x on your current Amiga IF you add a G3/G4 accelerator board (never mind if it's a SharkPPC+, or an AmigaOne 1200/4000).
So where do you see that Amiga Inc don't support the Amiga users. Of course they don't support the 68k and 603e/604e PPC users as AmigaOS 4.x will be a PPC OS, and supporting current PPC cards is a lack of time because today already the 603e or 604e is not enough for certain applications (games, DVD, Flash, 3D...etc). Let's go on G3/G4!
