…With only about 10-30 people onstaff, it would be a monumental task…It's not something a 10-30 man group can effectively handle.

This is admittedly a purely optimistic view: fishing out my Oct 95 issue of Macworld, the six-man strong Quix company based outside Zurich, Switzerland, managed to port the then current version of Mac OS to IBM's PReP specification for the PowerPC, which had it been approved by Apple would have made it possible for users to build a Mac OS box using off-the-shelf components and a generic PowerPC board. Not saying that it would be as easy in today's case, but let me dream of the possibilities.

It wasn't a full port to the IBM hardware. Some things didn't work. It was a proof of concept.
