You can always read poptech blogs like Engadget and The Verge if stuff like this doesn't interest you ;) .

I didn't say it didn't interest me, but I also can't see the practicality behind it. Were it open source or otherwise free, certainly. It's always cool to reuse old hardware for new purposes, but what I can't figure out is why anyone would pay for something this obsolete especially since there are other alternatives if Amiga is your area of interest.

Is it worth 111.11 EUR to you to make that G5 supported and give it a new lease of life?

I have one sitting in the corner (DP 1.8) which I Want to find a use for but haven't running an old version of OSX. G5 supporting Linux is shockingly sparse. I dont think this is for MY needs, but it gives me the option!

p.s. if this was £20 I would probably 'give it a go' just out of interest
