I wonder if this will push them to come out with 0.4Official. :D Exactly. And then some more releases from then on (versions 0.5-1.0 with full sound & hardware acceleration and 1/2 speed instead of 1/500 v 1/15th). Irony I see, are you dutch? let's try dutch by phonetics Noke in, in the coke in...

It look like CherryOS will come out after all... I will be very surprised if CherryOS is not based on PearPC. And if it is, then Sebastian should sue Arben. With what? His own money, Pay Pal donations? It would get very expensive and bring excessive heat on pearpc. Pearppc isn't and never will be a...

I prefer the look of OSX obviously over XP (Although XP isn't really that horrible just a bit child like. But having grown up on DOS and Spectrum Basic eye candy was never that big an issue.

It is something akin to - as far as I can see - the PowerPC having more registers than an x86 CPU. This was of course overcome to great effect by using another method than simply mapping PowerPC registers to x86 registers, so maybe altivec will be too. how really did they solved the register proble...

Re: fast

Qemu is also fast.. Qemu is reasonably fast (Nowhere near the 1/4 speed quoted on either of the machines I tried it on, 1 linux based and 1 XP machine) but PearPC will probably beat it speed wise (It's goal is OSX on X86 where as qemu is portability and whole system emulation). We should count ours...

perhaps trying to combine maconlinux with a cpu core from ppc, sheepshaver or qemu would eventually allow running mol in x86 linux. Qemu would be your best choice if (When) the emulated processor is capable of running Mac OS's. You should in theory be able to launch MOL through a native X86 linux d...
