Do we really want to get our nice OS running on those dirty CPUs?
I like MOS, whatever the hardware it runs on.
Motorola fanboys are a thing of the (Amiga) past. Those x86 CPUs are not stupid chips, no matter how much professional and insightful comments (like "dirty CPU") are made against them.
If one day MorphOS would run on x86 CPUs, we would see, as much a two or three days of the typical "traitor" drivel in the forums. Then, a couple of days later, no one else would complain any longer. Nor anybody would remember those cool PowerPC CPUs that got us stringing along for ten years.
x86 is not evil. Bad programming is evil.
