Morphos The MorphOS team seems to be on a roll. Recently, they added support for the PowerPC G4 Mac mini models from Apple, meaning it suddenly became a lot easier to get your hands on a computer capable of running MorphOS. As expected, the team has now announced that a release with PowerMac G4 support is coming as well.

The 360 would probably not the worst target, but the PS3 is rather completely out of question. The device is too different from yet supported computers. Also Sony will not allow to use the hardware at its maximum. Plus, the current PS3 doesn't support 3rd party OSs anymore.
While a 360 port would be nice, I think resources are better spend to support as many Appe ppc computers as possible, especially the powerbooks are a good next goal.
Once a bit broader user base is established maybe demand will be high enough to sustain production of new ppc devices (be them based on Freescale 8610 or some QorIQ or AMCC's Titan or IBM's 476FB). But in the current situation ApplePowerC computers are the best choice.
