Oh boy.
This is something we've been waiting for:

Hey, takemehomegrandma, that's not even one of the things I can't tell you about.

But don't they know? PPC is dead! Dead dead dead dead dead! Aorg members with a clear preference for other architectures keep saying it, so it must be true!

Any way how it can be dead as I can actually power my PPC on and it seems to be working fine :P

Oh, how right you are...I'll run right out and purchase a Wii? Or should I save for a WiiU? No, maybe I'll get a 360 or a PS3, then I can run Skyrim! It's just too bad there isn't a console out there to represent PowerPC anymore...

As far as I know, only the iMac G5s really suffer from cooling issues, as they wisely crammed a computer with a notoriously warm-running CPU into a flatscreen for style >:/ The Power Mac G5 has plenty of room in the case and multiple large fans, so it moves heat pretty good. Doesn't stop it from being a noisy sumbitch, though.

I have a dual G5 2.5GHz that I have been waiting to install MorphOS on when/if it was available.  Yes, it can get quite warm when both CPUs are pushed to the max, but hey, there are benefits... in the winter (here in Canada) it can keep a medium sized room heated a few degrees warmer!

This would be awesome! Hopefully I can get back to work and make a donation.

Issues were with Early 2005 models with watercooling (leaks etc). The goal machine has no watercooling at all.

yeah, I'd be a bit concerned about a liquid cooled machine from 7 years ago, I guess

AmigaDave sold me a 2.5 GHz G5 Power mac awhile ago, so naturally I'm psyched.

BTW - As a teaser, there may be additional announcements made in the future (near/far I have no idea).

Their so dead that I keep buying them, trading them, using them.
I've got a second 1.33GHz Xserve processor waiting for me at home (when I get home from work).
And over the weekend I converted three PC video cards for use in Macs under MorphOS for friends.

YAY. I'm so glad they will do g5 support. I will definitely register morphos if/when the g5 support is working.

g5 will definitely benchmark much faster than amigaone x1000...
