What's your basis for thinking this is possible? They're 32 bit, integer only, much slower than x86 and have extremely limited RAM. I don't get what the point of adding them is. I also don't see the point of sticking with PPC. It's an embedded chip now that Apple ditched it. It'll stagnate and die in the same manner as the 68k did. If you want to play with an Amiga I'd stick with the real thing*


*I'm not using the word "classic" since whatever is being peddled by Hyperion/Eyetech/Amiga Inc is sure as heck not a real Amiga.
