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: http://www.applelinks.com/pm/more.php?id=2546_0_1_12_M

In reply to Comment 38 (Use2B1):
I guess Johann means that including the existing Arexx binaries in a commercial product is similar to pirating.
The problem is that most of the users do not know what was in the original contract between Commodore and the Arexx author, were not aware of what really happened.
I guess that it is not a big deal for the author anymore as he never sued anyone for it.
Maybe someone can just ask him if he still cares about it and if he could put it in the public domain and or GPL.
If not there are only two options: using the existing binaries in emulation or restart from scratch / adapt from other implementations.
The first solution is quick and easy but not evolutive while the second one demands a lot of work but allows improvements.
