    We do not have R&D resources for it, but all modern PPC SOC support HW partitioning and virtualizations to allow several operating systems to be running at the same time. So it is perfectly doable to have MorphOS3 on core0, AmigaOS4 on core1, Multicore64bitmemoryprotectedOS on cores 2...23.

    Does that mean we could run a hypothetical "Classic MorphOS" and a "NG MorphOS" at the same time?

    Yes, many of the newer PPCs can enable hypervisor support.
    Even the G5 should have had it (I understand it is disabled).
    So, with a few minor modifications our current OS could run concurrently with a more modern 64 bit version.
