Re: AmigaOS4.0 on PPC

Dont worry, this is a new website and much of the information is still being added. Dont mind Athiest either, after the problems that have occured on other websites he is a little sensitive.
I miss the old Athiest, brimming with what seemed like an everfull font of enthusiasm, I hope now we have this website he can recapture that :)

BTW the "Zico" spec has long been abandoned. It was discovered to be too difficult and too expensive for what would be achieved so they went with Eyetech who bought the referance design of a "teron" PPC board by a company called MAI. They modified it and produced the A1 which came in SE, XE and Micro formats.

Apparently there was some problem with MAI and they went bankrupt or closed down or something leaving Eyetech without the chips required to build the boards.Since then we have not really heard anything from them, but people like ACK and Troikia, and more recently the SAM team have all had plans for a new board for us. Hardware has not looked this promising for some time, but none of it is available yet. Elbox has also advertise the construction of a "dragon" expansion board for the classic stuff that does not use PPC but rather a NG 68k processor. This will not be able to run OS4 at this point though, but it seems that it is compatible with some of the other boards Elbox is proposing and that these will work in concert allowing the use of AOS4. It is not hard to see how someone can get confused :)

To be honest, I am thinking about getting and old 1200 and PPC board if I ever get the disposeable cash.
