So different, that it requires quite some money to be developed, so if there's the mystical investor out there who is willing to spend some serious money - the Individual Computers team is first in line :-)

I agree, AmigaOS would be in a much much better position today if it hadn't jumped on the PPC wagon

Just think about all that wasted effort developing tools, code and hardware. I think without PPC, we might have seen a 100Mhz 060 back in the day and OS4 would be on x86 by now.

As I've said before, it's very unlikley that classics will ever get a 100Mhz 060 card, the future lies with FPGA softcores. Don't forget that a FPGA computer developed today with modern memory could be much faster than a 18 year old computer (even one with a 80Mhz 060 installed in it).
