>...Paul's recommendation was the addition of the xCORE stuff.
Yes, as I have mentioned it was an Xcore design that originally set me off looking for Paul.
And once I saw what his company was marketing I contacted him for advice.
So...when Nemo was announced I had my suspicions about a link between A-eon and Varisys that was later confirmed.
A fun period.
Just when you thought that PPCs didn't have much of a future in desktop computing A-eon manages to produce a run of boards with a rare PPC that Apple helped kill.
Then Freescale develops not one but two 64bit PPC cores.
And here we are, still discussing the immanent death of the PPC while IBM promotes Power8.
