Haha! I knew this would be coming eventually. Well done, lads! Planning support for anything other than 7,3? 11,2, perhaps? :)

According to the Apple Museum site these are the PowerMac G5 revisions:

PowerMac7,2   Power Macintosh G5, Power Macintosh G5 (Early 2005, dual 2.0 + 2.3 GHz)
PowerMac7,3   Power Macintosh G5 (June 2004), Power Macintosh G5 (Early 2005, dual 2.7 GHz)

PowerMac9,1   Power Macintosh G5 (Late 2004)
PowerMac11,2   Power Macintosh G5 (Late 2005)

There was also a PowerMac12,1 which was an iMac G5
and an earlier PowerMac8,1 and 8,2 which were also Imac G5's.

It's just that your post does not in expresses joy over what MOS achieved but joy that AOS4 failed in your opinion.


And if you consider that the X1000 has a comparable chip - it even comes across as uninformed.

What does G5s go for these days anyways ?

I just got one for 300 €. Dual 2.5GHz with 3GB RAM, 160GB HDD, Superdrive and Radeon 9600XT, incl Mac OS X Leopard.

I bet you can find ones cheaper in the US or elsewhere in europe, but the darn thing weighs 20.2 kg (44.4 pounds). This one is located by the Helsinki tram line...

Bill Gates former partner, Paul Allen is in Helsinki on his 120 meter yacht,
look him up, demo the latest Morphos, you never know, he did much thinking outside the box after leaving the dark empire. Its worth a shot.
Cheers

The only way to make him stop by MorphOS is to throw some heavy hardware (eMac may work) at the yacht and sink it.

And as always, questions about availability and offers for beta testing will likely be quite pointless at this time. :)

My guess is that it's still very far away, if it will ever be released. And the same goes for this I guess:

Depends. If you want a low end G5, I've seen $100-$200. The top end is about $600 - $700 or so.

And MorphOS takes the lead. Leaving the AOS4.x bite the dust...


The picture says: 2700 MHz CPU, 1350 MHz FSB. :)

The Powermac G5 is the fastest PPC desktop ever, isn't it? Definitely the fastest platform any PPC based *miga OS will ever see!

And you won't have to sell your first born (*and* your car) to get it! :)

The MorphOS team's strategy to support every kind of suitable Mac model worth supporting has really been the way to go, it's clearly the winning strategy! Making the most out of the PPC platform makes sense, since this is where MorphOS is ATM. What happens "post PPC" remains to be seen, but it's a good thing to make use of all cheap Mac HW that people more or less throw at you! :)

I couldn't be more happy with my 1.5GHz Mac Mini though. Silent, very small and neat, and does pretty much everything (except 1080p x264) I want of it!

The G5 isn't for me... :)

Wow I have a 1.8 ghtz G5 that is showing it's age but will make the perfect Moprhos box. Folks can't give away the G5's becuase they just can't run the new MacOS intel only stuff. ***JOYGASM!***

Yeah, and companies are beginning to offload vast quantities of G5 Macs as support for PPC SW on Mac is diminishing!

:)

The MorphOS Team are finalizing the picture! The palette is getting complete! After the...

Mac Mini (Small)
eMac (Cheap)
PowerBook (Laptop)
PowerMac G4 (Cheap, expandable, "real" case)
PowerMac G5 (Powerful (the very top of the line of what PPC had to offer when it comes to performance))

...they will fully have covered all reasonable PPC options there is!

No, that's something OS4 users simply don't do, right?
