As Amiga OS4 for AmigaOne and CSPPC based machines nears completion, Hyperion is undertaking a survey to gauage demand for the BPPC version
Therefore if you are an Amiga1200 owner with a Dual Blizzard PPC card and would like to see OS4 ported to this machine, please send an email to: email@example.com
Please note: Ensuring that OS4 will work on the BPPC is a momumental task which will require enormous effort in both Time and Money. Therefore only email us if you have every intention of purchasing OS4 for BPPC.
Your support is very much appreciated in this matter.

|Hyperion OS4 BPPC Survey : Comment 80 of 151||ANN.lu|

|For the record, the reason why we want to have an idea in the intrest of OS 4 for the BlizzardPPC is simply because the A1200 has a ton of strange hardware hacks available for it like clockport adaptors, Mediator, ZIV, Zorro 2 slots, Zorro 3 (Mikronik), PCMCIA etc.|
This means quite a bit of testing and possibly quite a few drivers might break.
That's the main difficulty, it's a support nightmare.
You can't really tell people that suddenly their ethernet card or soundcard doesn't work anymore.
Or at the very least you need to be able tell them "this and that hardware works, everything else is not supported".
