Intresting comment:
"As for the G5 iMac and eMac, I wouldn't be surprised if the low end eMac is upgraded at the end of this year with the new Freescale "system on a chip" which will debut at around 2Ghz and scale beyond 3Ghz. Yes, it is 32bit, however, from the rumour mill I have heard clock for clock, it will be faster than the P4/XP(32bit)"

Last quarter, Apple sold 243,000 i+eMacs, 240,000 iBooks, 173,000 PowerMacs, and 220,000 PowerBooks. Amiga-logic tells us that the best thing for AmigaOS and its potential sales is to only make it available bundled with more expensive, older, slower and less equipped hardware without any relevant previous market presence, on an artificially created de facto monopoly market which seems to be rather saturated after more than 2 years of sales and 500 - 1000 (?) shifted units. So why is this news item on ANN? Looking at technological progress in the rest of the tech universe can't be good for morale...

:P

As for the alternatives, MOS/Genesi are like MacOS/Apple and have their own (supposedly) money-making hardware, so it'll be a cold day in hell when MOS is available for Macs (OTOH, I saw that Doom III has gone gold, so Mr. Lucifer might want to put on a cardigan). AROS progress on x86 is slow as it is, without branching to PPC and getting "all" those x86 apps ported/recompiled.

In reply to Comment 2 (Seehund):
There will only be merely a slight wind-chill in Hell when MorphOS runs on
a Mac.

Or under emulation, for that matter..

You mean, that is not a monopoly ?

Who cares? Do you really think a Mac Owner will _buys_ MOS ? Do you really think Genesi makes money out of Mac business. Dreamer...

In reply to Comment 4 (none):
I don't think they make that much money at all, but if they could get more morphos users, even if they didn't paid for the os, they would be in a better position to earn more money.

At this time, AMD doesn’t accept orders for processors below K7 Athlon XP 2700+ i.e. K7 Athlon XP will dead by 2005.

Note that all Athlon XPs are at EoL(End of Life) phase i.e. Sempr0n and Athlon 64 would be its competitors.
