    From why I understand there will be an x86 port. What I am not sure about is if this will be a shift or a fork, with team MorphOS supporting any new PPC hardware that becomes available (such as this particular board or the PPC laptop in the other thread). It is for them to decide I guess :)

    I guess that MorphOS increased accessibility once ported to x86 hardware which is cheaply available off the shelf would theoretically mean a sudden increase of users, both from the Amiga world and non. Some of said users might be developers and would be interested to bring new software and drivers to the OS creating a snowball effect. Hopefully.

    Naive question, if (or when) MorphOS comes to x86 will it be easier/faster to port open source software which exists for Windows/Linux for the same CPU?
