The Pegasos II is featured in an article on the website AppleLinks. The article is called "Pegasos - An Alternative Power PC Platform" and it's a good read for newbies interested in a PPC solution other than the Mac.
One of the big stories on the Mac Web last week (and ongoing) was the Cherry OS emulator that is claimed to run OS X efficiently on X86 PC platforms. It remains to be seen whether Cherry OS can deliver, but there is another alternative to Apple hardware that is capable of running the Mac OS in emulation.
The article then describes the Pegasos system, covering it's CPU's, OS's, etc, and sums up what it's all about in a quite nice way. Read the article here:

|In reply to Comment 28 (Johan Rönnblom):|
Seems a lot of assumptions regarding copyrights to Arexx.
First, I understood REXX was developed by IBM, and ran on their mainframes. IBM also included a version of REXX in OS2.0. So Arexx, meant to be compatible with REXX (or mostly anyway) is not an original concept, though the specific coding implementation may be copyrighted (like different versions of BASIC or Pascal).
Thus, if someone writes a similar interpreter for PPC, how can it be pirated, unless it was reverse engineered and subsequently translated. Anyone know if that's the case for either Genesi or Hyperion? Or was it just re-implemented so the commands work the same. Or are we all just guessing?
