|[News] Hyperion OS4 BPPC Survey||ANN.lu|
|Posted on 02-Jun-2003 22:04 GMT by Mikey_C||151 comments|
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

|Please don't spend time on the crappy BPPC!|
Concentrate on AmigaOne first, then CSPPC and later (after a few boing-bags and stuff) you can start considering BPPC.
I have a BPPC but I will never ever run OS4 on it, I just would't. I will get an A1 with OS4, and it if fails (never comes or something) I will get a Pegasos with MOS but never OS4 on this piece of hack I'm writing this post on right now.
It wouldn't work to full satisfaction anyway and the motherboard access to the A1200 mobo from a BPPC is so extremely slow (600-700ns) and it will not be any different with the PPC doing the access to HD's, PCMCIA, clockport, etc.
