That's true, but then no one said it would.

Most of those parts can easily be compiled for 68k, but they won't be because Amiga Inc are comitted to an exclusive PPC future. Forget the so-called hardware agnostic OS 5.0 because that's just a smokescreen. AmigaDE needs a hardware dependent core to run on as it lacks some features needed in a modern desktop OS. That hardware dependent core will always be PPC, as the same parties who now invest so heavily in a PPC future will not permit a multi-hardware platform solution to be released. What makes you think so many 68k programmers will now recode their apps to PPC, and then in 2 years time recode everything again for VP?
There is no problem with people choosing to go the PPC route, as long as they don't demand everyone else join them against their better judgement.
