Re: Amiga PPC emulation

They could start advertising it for $30. If its cheap, many people think why not. More sales, better for hyperion.

Historically Hyperion have (seemingly) been against AmigaOS4 running on x86 PCs, I think mainly due to worries about piracy (as well as people not bothering to buy 'real' PPC Amigas). I won't bother arguing whether or not they were correct (nor whether that is still valid).

I also wonder how Hyperion would be able to justify the expense of supporting another platform if the OS sold for just $30. Not only would they likely have to write special drivers for much of the (emulated) hardware, especially for stuff like 3D, but what about all the AmiUpdates for the OS that $30 buyers would be getting for free?
