>Is it twice the speed, half the speed, or about the same? That is the question. A difference of 30% is not significant.
Sorry, I don't have that program nor amithlon. But I'm curious: Would ImageEngineer really be your sole motivation to get a Pegasos? Weired :-) Since you have a PC, why not run something like Picture Publisher with it, which is fast, fun, free? With such narrow interests, that would be a logical upgrade rather than faster emulation.
As to MorphOS 1.4 and running classic software, it is really fast, you notice that right away just from just looking at it without a stopwatch. But since you need hard figures, somebody else has to step in with a test. On the other hand it may not matter much: You do know that native PPC graphics software is included in the superbundle, don't you? iosprits's light product. I've briefly played with the drawing program, effects like a layered pond-style wavefront are displayed in real time.
