    A few weeks ago I thought about how to do a switch to x86 and thought of this: https://morph.zone/modules/newbb_plus/viewtopic.php?topic_id=6570&forum=3#66869

    In essence two boxes: One Box for legacy (i.e. in big endian mode (ppc emulated or just flipped x86 code) and one Box, very similar to ABox (probably a bit enhanced when breaking backward compability anyway) in little endian mode.
    Legacy apps would get a slight speed penalty due to flipping endianness and/or 68k/ppc emualation, but new compiles for x86 little endian would get the full speed. Of couse some shared clipboard and some interoperability between the two boxes must be warranted, but I guess the new x86 box could take care about those things.

    Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
