    Indeed, that's why MorphOS can run on G5. The same is obviously true for the X5000's e5500 core, which is why MorphOS and OS4 can run on it. The only 64-bit-only Power(PC) I'm aware of is the A2.

    I gotta admit that I hadn't heard of that one, nor its open sourcing. In any case, that it supposedly was 64 bit only was a bit surprising to me, especially after checking the introduction on the Wikipedia page, which claims that it implements PowerISA v2.06, which to the best of my knowledge doesn't allow 64-bit processors to not implement a 32 bit mode.

    After checking out the linked A2 documentation, it does imply that the 32 bit mode is also available on those CPUs.
    I rarely log in to MorphZone which means that I often miss private messages sent on here. If you wish to contact me, please email me at [username]@asgaard.morphos-team.net, where [username] is my username here on MorphZone.
