I do not think this will happen. With the limited resources, there is no reason to waste any.
Better go for the right target instead of doing it wrong on purpose. Thats the same reason why no one will go the Cygnix way, too. It is a solution that in the end no one wants.
Doesn't that depend on how hard it is to implement? Without knowing too much about programming, AMP does sound like a relatively easy way to get multicores until MOS changes architecture. I think you are right to say that doing it the right way from the start is the way to go, but we should not forget the existing hardware as well. If we would get multicore G5 working, our hardware would suddenly not be so far behind anymore. As a modern OS, MOS would gain a couple of more years before becoming too old for everyday usage.
