The writing is on a wall when Motorola abandoned their 68K customers (e.g. Atari, Commodore, Capcom, Sega, and many others) and forces them to migrate to another CPU platform. Most of 68k customers are only a shadow of their former greatness.

AMD might make a good owner.


The 64bit MIPS family is their chosen CPU for their alternative/backup CPU family.  AMD markets thier MIPS lines under 'Alchemy'.

I don’t think AMD is in position to spend on yet another big expense. It’s more likely they may licence PowerPC ISA IF there is a large abandoned Motorola PowerPC customers.    

I don’t know IF IBM wants to rebuild their multi-source PowerPC market place regime via AMD.

I find it strange that you can determine my knowledge in analysing market strategies by reading two centences that doesn't contain a single word about it, but hey, you're the marketing guru, right?

btw: my comment was meant as a joke rather than an argument against your posting (hence the smiley).
