Blackbird / Availability of P9 hardware post-ISA 3.1 HW launch
« on: April 13, 2024, 12:38:51 am »
As far as I know, the plan for the Solid Silicon hardware is to release late this year. Will there be a period where you can buy either a Blackbird or the new offering, or will it directly replace it? I assume Vikings keeps a couple in stock at any one time so they'll wait until they run out to discontinue their listing, but I'm not in Europe.

Anyone interested? They recently cleaned up their PPC branch, though it's still way behind x86. Personally, I think it would be a great OS for people who are a little less comfortable with command lines, and I enjoy using it too for how simple it is, how fast it is on my Pentium M laptop, and how it doesn't recognize its panel and lets me use it at 85 Hz. Hardware support isn"t amazing, however.

I recognize their PPC efforts are focused around Macintosh, but there was a little bit of talk about OpenPOWER hardware on their forums and the response was basically "the only reason it couldn't be done is nobody's doing it".
