Great idea! It is really right time now to switch to a newer PowerPC based mobo from a Peg2 and I will definitely pay 500eur for a MPC8640D based system. But! Always there's at least 1 "but"! I definitely need more than 1 PCI slot, SATA or IDE doesn't seems to be a problem anyway coz there's a huge amount of IDE hw here, but I have a PCI sound card which I like and don't want to change to internal one, also I will definitely need an USB and I also have a TV tuner.
I'm using linux now much more than MorphOS because of my work and a poor development environment there, but if MorphOS will run there it would be a great thing.
