I just meant, there were some really nice ones (late 2005) PowerMac11,2 , Dual 2.3 GHz on eBay.
But I remembered 7,3 is the last one supported (early 2005).
It seems like an obvious step that the developers are dragging their feet on.
Frank acknowledge that it could be done, but took me to task for quoting his time estimate as if it was statement that it would be done.
Since then...we've heard nothing, and I'm still wondering if Frank is still pissed off about that.
But...in case he is, I haven't brought it up with him, as I don't want to irritate the guy.
Believe it or not, I actually DO selectively pick when to be annoying.
AND, if I had to pick between focusing on an X64 shift or the support of new PPC hardware, I'd be hard pressed to justify the later.
Sure, PCIe G5s would be nice, BUT they are 12 years old.
I'd rather have an SMP enabled MorphOS running on a Ryzen CPU.
