Amiga & AROS Despite the recent emergence of several new ways to actually run AmigaOS 4.0, the supply of machines is still extremely small, and not very future proof. As such, one of the most recurring questions within the Amiga community is why don't they port the darn thing to x86?

Yeah, because a PPC processor with off-the-shelf PC parts is so much more "Amiga" than an x86 processor with off-the-shelf PC parts.

PPC has no more or less to do with the original Amiga than x86. It's just elitist bullshit.
