This would finally persuade me to invest in some hardware to run AmigaOS, especially with Apple going x86.

PPC boxes may well get quite cheap as a result of that move, and I'd feel my investment was protected by being able to run more than one OS.

( Before anyone suggests the A1 can run Linux too, I don't consider that a usable OS even compared to the shortcomings of its major competitors )

I know this subject has been done to death over the years, but I can't be the only one who would by an 'Amiga system' for the first time if OS4 could be made to run on such hardware.

It´s a matter of time that os4 get working under pearpc(powerpc emulator for x86). I have seen mac os x under pearpc and it´s amazing!!!!!!, so, since os4 is lighter in weight and requirements i think it could run faaaast!!

Good point.
I occ use os x 10.3 on a fairly high end pc using pearpc. Great though it is ( pearpc ) I find it's too slug-like to be properly usable. Maybe your system is *much* faster than mine.

Yes Os4 would do better, but under emulation 3.9 would remain my choice as I'm spoiled by the speed of my current setup.
