I think IBM is trying to get volumes up to fight off Intel. They been introducing lower priced gear already and by letting other people in they can grow the ecosystem and get prices down further without hurting their own margins.
It'll be very interesting to see what Tyan bring out. You might finally see a sensibly priced POWER system.
I think Tyan wil be making POWER server boards rather than PowerPC workstation boards.
I hope I'm wrong though and they release some nice boards that sell in large numbers potentially providing MorphOS with new boards to run on.
1.67GHz 15" PowerBook G4, 1GB RAM, 128MB Radeon 9700M Pro, 64GB SSD, MorphOS 3.9
2.7GHz DP G5, 4GB RAM, 512MB Radeon X1950 Pro, OSX 10.5.8, 500GB SSHD, MorphOS 3.9
