O.k. lets assume these are available next year (just for fun), it would still need a decade for OS4 support to be actually released....
As for MorphOS support, given that these things always tend to be done by the same 5 guys, I rather have them working on the AMD support both in CPU and GPU and/or doing a "QBox" (SMP,MP all that stuff)

Lots of things (and non red shirt people) died and stayed dead in TOS.
>I'm in favor of another PPC/Power based system.
I code in C(++) and LUA, couldn't care less if it was running on PPC or some super-hyped up Z80...

It's dead Jim !!!

Apple seems to be knocking on the basement door, would be surprised to see them at the Penthouse in a few years.

"legacy MorphOS" is fine as it is and wouldn't benefit much from the T2080 compared to the G4 i/PowerBooks it already supports.
"MorphOS NG" (if it ever comes to fruition) has no business supporting dead on arrival HW.
