    Hi All

    Sorry if this is already posted but I thought that this was interesting.

    Maple - IBM 970FX and CPC 925 Evaluation System

    Its an ATX Mobo that uses dual 970FX CPU's (basically a G5) It runs linux as its OS.

    It should therefore be able to run Darwin.

    I wonder if this is how the G5 started its life.

    Notice that board can address the full 8 ddr slots (8 gigs of ram)

    Also take a look at the PCI Slots, its got the PCI-X slots

    These are the people providing the cooling I think for the board.

    Where's the AGP Slot ?

    Though I don't think this is too much competition to the G5 powermac , I do think it might be sapping up some CPUs we need for our beloved powermac and imacs.
