So, to sum up;

Reasons not to use a G5 PPC as the basis of a RISC OS machine:

1) It's the one most likely not to succeed since the designers are thinking more about embedded uses and Apple are already complaining that the CPUs they use aren't fast enough.

and

2) With Mac OS X the GUI performance in Jaguar is so sluggish it feels like using a 7000 series.

Great.
