I really would recommend waiting for OS4 BPPC rather than buying an 060.

Or don't wait, but use free PowerUP MorphOS.

It has Trance JIT engine which is even faster (moderate 603 runs faster than 060).

Give me Mediator support please! :-(

And Prometheus support.  :-D

from morphos web site:

If you find the free edition of MorphOS 1.4.5 to be useful and have successfully registered your copy, you might consider donating to the MorphOS PayPal account in order to encourage future support of [color=ff0000]OLD[/color][/i][/u] Commodore legacy hardware.

I did a brief bench of MOS and AOS3.9 on the A1200.
You can read the result here:
The A1200 with the Blizzard running MOS is quite useable. The ppc is not the fastest you may dream of, but it does the job quite well.
And a Powerup with 68040 is not that much more expensive than a 68060 card. So I'g go the ppc route. MOS will evolve, also OS4 will be available for that boards. The 68k OS is a dead end (well a quite nice dead end at least).
