    However, they claim that the Apollo core is as fast or even faster (considering Hyper-threading) than some of the PPC accelerators or even some of the lower spec G4s.
    Together with AROS could be a nice combo.


    I've seen those comments too, but I think they are overreaching.

    Hey, enjoy it for what it is, a way to elevate the performance of legacy hardware and its OS'.
    I still use legacy hardware, so I can understand the appeal.
    Plus, '060 and PPC accelerators are virtually unobtainable.

    AND, even though some of the Apollo team might be a little (ahem) eccentric, they did push on a get a product produced.

    Good for them, and a lesson for any naysayers that think this can only be done with the funding of a corporate backer.
    We CAN build what we want, if we are committed to doing so.
