Paladin of the Pegasos

There is no point in a new "Pegasos" as none of the SoCs by Freescale is powerfull enought to hold it's water against a PowerMacG5, with only one core used probraly not even a PowerMacG4. You'll end up with something somewhere between the SAM460 and X5000.
A new "Efika" on the other hand..... sound USB2,GBit and SATA onboard, 1 or 2GB soldered, a SoC slightly more powerfull than a Peg2 and 1 PCIe for GFX all for 150-250€ retail....
Basicly a Tabor with all the stupid removed ;)
Problem is, HYPErion won't support a board without stupid built in. A-Eonkit won't admit it it, but part of the crazy markup is to pay HYPErion to port OS4. There is no other explanation. If Genesi made such a board, OS4 probably wouldn't come to it.
