|The japanese Amiga... there ist still an huge fan community around, they could be interested in the Apollo Core, too. |
the X68000 shared it fate with Amiga, Atari and (nearly) Mac: PowerPC was mainly a total flop. IBM Power is a bit better, but also had its problems since x86(64) got stronger and stronger. Even in avionics and other industrial uses we see this problem: B2, Eurofighter and I think also Gripen had to migrate from Motorola to PowerPC and this migration process is still difficult - one of the reasons Austria wants to get rid of their Tranche 1 fighters. The DE, AT, UK Tranche1 Fighters are still 68k!
I think there is a market for the Apollo Core, and also SAGA as built in graphics solution - with or without AmigaOS.
