    Only Bigfoot and a part of the team knows what he want to do.

    But for sure we need to have a new hardware with suitable hardware prices.
    X64 is the easiest way now, it may change in the future but who knows ?

    Powermacs are dying and pegasos too, so an ISA change is a NEED in a not so long future.
    My powerbook in now dying and i don't want to invest in a X5000, i prefer laptops and 2000 euros is too expansive for me....i'am seriously wandering about an isa change even with an unfinished operarting system with a sandbox for the abox at start.

    A personnal message from east of france:

    I have MorphOS installed on numerous Macs: Power Macs, Power Books and iBooks.

    MorphOS is one of my favourite OSs to use and I feel very comfortable using it, for me at the moment I could do with a version to run on an AMD laptop as my 2 Powerbooks I use are falling to pieces.

    I have always preferred laptops to desktops when at home which is why none of my Amiga machines really get much use.

    I occasionally emulate and have played around with AROS with not much luck.

    I have many old PC laptops that are crying out for a MorphOS port.

    It's unlikely that MorphOS/x64 will support those.

    Andreas is right. MorphOS/X64 is likely to be tailored to specific hardware. There is no way the team can support all the different chipsets available for X64. My hope is that they will focus on something AMD based.
