Hi all,

I've discovered a PPC emulator called PearPC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PearPC

Apparently it's possible to run PPC based OSes on it. It's mostly aimed at MacOS but there's mention of running PPC Linux versions.

My question is ..... do you reckon it'd run AmigaOS 4.x?

Discuss!!!

Any particular reason it's a no?
(just fancied like opening a can of worms)

To my knowledge MorphOS runs on PearPC for developers of the OS. But MorphOS is "dongled" to the hardware it's sold to, so (n)

I reckon that if AOS4 developers test and develop with PearPC, running it out in the wild is also prevended since the OS is also dongled to hardware...
