Morphos Genesi has announced its Open Server Workstation: "The Open Server Workstation is a six layer board with two 970MP processors, the CPC945 and Broadcom's HT-1000 and 2000 chips. Excepting those parts, the board and component cost is below USD 200. Here is the Business Plan [.pdf] we wrote for the board."

I hope that (non-Apple - obviously) PowerPC-based desktops pick up, because I don't know if AMD and Intel are competitive enough with each other to keep x86 innovating. (I'm not saying they will; I'm not even saying I think they will - I'm saying I hope they will). It may be the case that Apple's high profile relative to everyone else in the PPC space actually hindered non-Apple PowerPC in general, especially since they neither licensed out hardware or OSes (except for a comparatively short period), nor offered other operating systems.
