Morphos Bright days ahead for the Amiga world. AROS is doing well, AmigaOS4 is getting one heck of a machine in the AmigaOne X1000, and MorphOS continues its development at a brisk pace. Version 2.6 of MorphOS, currently in development, will add support for (G4, I'm assuming) PowerMacs, which, alongside support for the Mac Mini and eMac, gives MorphOS a solid base of used hardware to run on.

??? What does x86 have to do with PPC ???
It's a completely different architecture and actually older than PPC. What do you mean?
Do you mean that one should "upgrade" to x86 because it is cheap? Why not ARM or MIPS or whatever? In what way is x86 an "upgrade" to PPC?


He is drawing parallels to Apple's move from PowerPC to x86 considering Apple was the largest PowerPC desktop/laptop producer up until recently. That there is a movement away from PowerPC outside of niche areas and it would be best for the said operating system vendor to do likewise.

That is my assumption anyway.
