With all due respect, I fail to see the problem with a PPC port.  I do 
understand that not to many people have PPC machines besides Apple Macs and 
that a few want to run OBOS on their BeBoxen.  Has it ever occurred to you 
that some of us might be eyeing the PPC motherboard that Eyetech is producing 
for the new Amiga computer that is coming out.  Personally, I would find it 
sad if we were able to purchase inexpensive PPC computers, but OBOS couldn't 
run on it.  Especially since BeOS was ported to Intel based computers from PPC 
machines.  Personally if I were to buy a PPC mobo I'd want to use it as a 
dedicated BeOS/OBOS machine.
