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):
"Thus, if someone writes a similar interpreter for PPC, how can it be pirated, unless it was reverse engineered and subsequently translated."

AFAIK it has to be reverse engineered in order to make it 100% compatible with Arexx. Arexx is not Rexx straight off as far as I understand, but amiga specific and 68k dependant in its internal structures, or something like that.

"Anyone know if that's the case for either Genesi or Hyperion? Or was it just re-implemented so the commands work the same."

AFAIK, in MorphOS there is no complete Arexx, but only some very basic stuff to get some functions in Voyager etc to work. Hyperion simply copied the binaries from the Amiga OS disks. Anyone owning a copy of AmigaOS could simply do the same and copy the binaries to their MorphOS installation. Nothing could be more simple, but instructions are at morphzone.org if you don't know how to do.
