Title: PowerPC Notebook Campaign
Post by: Iggy on June 24, 2017, 04:53:48 PM
I have submitted this as a general news item, as there is no commitment (yet) to port Amiga NG OS' to this platform.
Although, Timothy De Groot at Hyperion has stated that hey are open to discussing a port of OS4.


This page has a announcement and a link to the funding campaign.

It has already been pointed out (on MorphZone) that donations are non-refundable.
This is, at least in part, due to the fact that once enough is raised, Acube will be paid for their initial work (and obviously, as a professional firm, they would KEEP whatever they are paid).

Frankly, I found myself somewhat irritated a the post that took umbrage to this condition, as I am participating in and supporting the project myself.

I hope that those of you that participated in our discussion of a possible community funded project will consider donating to this.
The initial funds needed for Acube to commence work on the schematics is relatively modest.

And as this is a non-profit project, hopefully the hardware will be both powerful and (reasonably) economical.

As you all can probably guess, I'm all for this.
