The boards were very complicated, required a lot of testing, and as people know often suffered from manufacture flaws due to the way the 680x0 socket is soldered. If DCE thought it non-profitable (and they are a PCB design plant) then it's non-profitable in any way shape or form.

It's a shame because I've just found a regular supply of 100MHz capable MC68060RC50 (Full ones with MMU + FPU Rev.6 Mask 71E41J ).
