    We truly appreciate your efforts:

    While the EFIKA Open Client is no longer in stock at Genesi, it is still for sale at AusPPC and other resellers...

    Thank you.

    Best regards,
    R&B :-)

Those extra cores could become coprocessors - using one to run another instance of MorphOS in a window (or whatever) could lead to some really useful debugging techniques. Or even run PPC linux in a window - that'd be a really cool way to leapfrog the issue of all the modern application software we'd like to have on MorphOS. That linux-in-a-window could even use the other cores.


    I like your thinking ausPPC. It would also be great if the YDL PowerStation could run MacOS10.4, or 10.5. If we can't get MorphOS ported to the PowerStation with YDL and/or MacOS running in a window, maybe we could get it in reverse, with MorphOS running via emulation in a window on top of YDL, and/or MacOS (someday?).

    @ Genesi

    Hey BBRV, as I already asked on your blog and knowing Genesi's main focus is ARM now (and looking forward to it ), would it be possible to gain something from the 8610 redtail board by NEC? From the little publically avaiable information that one looked quite promising. But AFAIK it's a kind of development board/study (but with this very tiny form factor already and not too IC crowded, but rather tidy), not an end user board - but how much efford would be required to make it an end user board? Do you have some knowledge about that board and its background you may share with us here? I mean it seemed pretty similar to what I have thought the Efika 8610 would have become...

    Well, if it doesn't have *at least two* FPGA's and a 16 layer PCB I'm not interested. The more of those things, the merrier. :-P

    I very much doubt that we'll ever hear of such a thing for the 460SX lacks an FPU, as well as the 460GTx.


    Well, it's a "storage processor" after all, not something meant for desktop motherboards. I would hope for a "real" CPU instead, something like the 8640(D) or 8610. Doubt it will happen though...

    My simple (and probably stupid) question is - where is MOS going to be in the future? Is Genesi going to do any future platform to support MOS?

    It'll go as far as the ambitions of the team...and they are pretty ambitious, who knows with the right exposure, there may even be a mainstream chance. Patience is a virtue with these os's, I rather put up with the short comings than messing with anything else. My efika plays better(quality) than the mac, and my win machine has its normal issues. If I'm not dealing with industry standard apps, then I'm on my efika (even with the relentless dropping of ext devices)

    @amigadave

    I'm totally ignorant about PegXMac and MacOnLinux but the fact that these programs exist shows that there is a reasonable chance that the PowerStation could run OS X that way. Other than that, I agree that it'd be cool if OS X ran natively on it - much like the non-Apple x86 boxes out there.
    PPC assembly ain't so bad... ;)

    I really don't know. Sorry.

    It's known that the Efika split the MorphOS team into two parts: one that liked the Efika by itself and another one that didn't and could only be convinced by hard cash from Genesi. The first group didn't object to payment as well, of course ;-)

    Following the PPC464 core based PPC460SX and PPC460GTx, Applied Micro introduced the PPC464FP core based APM821xx CPU family yesterday, unfortunately reaching only up to 1 GHz.
