Default Re: UltimatePPC and everything else

Last saturday we had our Commodore GG meeting, and the UltimatePPC was shown "in the flesh".
Both delevopers were in Maarssen and brought along Samo Jordan, original developer of the WarpOS/WarpUP! software.

Current status is:

- Hardwarewise the PPC side is working and booting. The 68040 side works, but does not yet talk to the classic hardware. The card does run, standalone. But the Amiga will not boot yet with the card inserted.

- Active talks with Hyperion for supporting AmigaOS4.x.

- Driver support: lots of help pledged for building drivers for all the hardware goodies (more help is always welcome!)

- Support for WarpUp/WarpOS through support pledged by the original author

Interesting bit: The MicroSD card on the UltimatePPC holds the firmware/bootcode. This is indended to stay. That means upgrading/flashing the card can be done with a normal PC and a card reader... !!
