Motorola already knew what second-sourcing was, and there was no second source for the 8088 until IBM asked for it. Second sourcing was a subject when IBM evaluated the TI 9900, but the 68000 was never even a contender. IBM had made their choice a bit too early to consider the 68000, CP/M compatibility notwithstanding.
