    The reason I *really* don't get what you say is not that you don't provide links (whatever these would look like) but that your way of concluding doesn't make any sense.

    > Yo know exactly what i mean by that.

    No, I don't know.

    > Of course PPC is not dead as an architecture, but it's dead as usable for MorphOS.

    That still doesn't make sense. From the specs of one specific, low-cost and low-power PPC chip that just became available you conclude that PPC as usable for MorphOS is dead?
    I didn't say your statement (PPC is dead for MorphOS) per se is false. It's just that your way of concluding (new low-spec PPC chip released -> PPC is dead for MorphOS) is bogus. That would be like concluding from the release of a low-spec embedded x86 chip that x86 is dead for e.g. Windows. Would be silly, don't you agree?

    > You may get excited about new embedded products

    You may be fantasizing. Simply stating that a product exists does not mean getting excited about it, especially if it's just an answer to someone who denied the existence of that product. And you may remember that it wasn't even me who started this thread about the MPC5125.

    > we are at MorphZone, and our scope here is different.

    Yes, of course. But even in context of MorphOS your way of concluding doesn't make any sense.

    Btw, may I ask what do you conclude from the specs of PowerPC A2, APM83290/Titan, ACP34xx/Axxia/PPC476FP and QorIQ/e500mc in view of MorphOS?
