Want to run AmigaOS 4.1—a few questions . . .

Would really like to run AmigaOS 4.1, mainly for its TrueType font-support and ability to run legacy Amiga graphics apps. A few questions . . .

So, I guess there's just three options as of June 2019:

• AmigaOne X5000 ($2,168 as I configured).
• MIST FPGA 1.4 in clear or metal box from amigaonthelake.com ($239). [CORRECTION—THIS IS 68K NOT PPC]
• Amiga A1200 + Blizzard 603e PPC/SCSI board (expensive!).

Questions:

• AmigaOS 4.1 only runs on PowerPC emulators, right?
• Do these PPC-emulator/AmigaOS 4.1 machines allow different resolutions on the same screen like original AGA chipsets do?
• Do you need to install anything other than AmigaOS 4.1 to make it work?
• Do you need to buy AmigaOS 4.1 separately in addition to a MIST?
• Is there a MIST-specific forum somewhere?

So, in general, how are MISTs working for legacy graphics apps like SCALA and Broadcast Titler, etc.? What are some of the biggest downsides to MIST? Lastly, there's probably no way to run software that only works on Kickstart 1.3 ROMs on a MIST running AmigaOS 4.1, right?
