    Yes, I know the e700 route isn't pursued by Freescale anymore for a long time. My question wasn't really meant seriously :-) Also power.org's Power Architecture Silicon Roadmap doesn't mention it anymore.

    From your moobunny posting:

    Then why are Freescale going to put the e600 EOL (according to BBRV)?

    Right, it's e500. And that's as well the reason the QorIQ is not the least promising for me as a desktop Power Architecture (i.e. MorphOS) user. The e500's (and e200's) FPU implementation is incompatible with the one of the e300 and e600 (and the PPC4xx, the PPC7xx and the PPC970 for that matter).
