Even at 99 EUR it is still more expensive than Windows 8 (just for comparison), and if far less capable. It might run well on that hardware, but to the best of my knowledge it still doesn't have WiFi support (and I would love to be proved wrong).


While there's no support for build in Airport cards there is actually wifi support for Atheros WLAN cards at least. For Powerbooks quite an option.
For the price, yes it's not the lowest price, but rememeber updates are free. I paid 111.11 EUR years ago for V2.0 (IIRC summer 2007) and received 10 free updates since. If that fact isn't negelcted all the time, the price really comes down to a way more attractive level.


Well and about the X1000 - that's just a PowerPC desktop computer in the league of a Powerbook/Atom. Eventually it is stuck in the same dead end as the used Macs, but way more expensive (something about 3000 EUR). And the Xena/Xorro thingie eventually is only a marketing stunt - it's an attached ┬ÁC (XMOS XS1) everyone can attach to any computer with usb or pci. But if ppl have fun with that machine, good, It isn't my cup of tea though. Ppl have different tastes and interests - I accept and welcome that.
