Also, after all this discussion on the new Acube MB, why not port MorphOS to Acube boards? The Applied Micro processors they're using are a little underpowered, but the boards are avaiable. Isn't availability one of the major considerations (when deciding what to port to)?
In terms of availability (of PowerPC hardware platforms), nothing comes even close to Macs right now so this is what is being focused on.
If somebody is not interested to buy second-hand hardware for whatever reason and does not mind a low-performance processor, that person can still buy brand new EFIKA 5200 mainboards and / or EFIKA-based kits from resellers such as Directron (USA) or Vesalia (Germany). This entry-level platform has been consistently available to MorphOS enthusiasts for years now.
