You can currently run MacOS, two flavors of Unix (MachTen and Linux),
and DOS/Windows 3.1/Windows 95 on *existing* powerpcs. You may even
be able to run AIX - I am not sure. So why wait six months?

I have no idea what you mean here. I can currently run umpteen
different OSes on my PC (DOS, WindowsNT, OS/2, Linux, FreeBSD/NetBSD,
Solaris x86 etc. etc. etc.) all using the same processor and memory.
