    Default inversed rosetta - translate x86 code to PowerPC.. possible?

    I'm starting to realize the huge limitations of this G5... I now call it the running dead. runs perfectly but its dead in terms of support. and with Lion, this computer should be dead in the grave.

    I read on google about IBM's quicktransit, which rosetta is a form of. was quicktransit ever released, or did Apple buy all rights to it?

    supposedly, quicktransit translates x86 code to PowerPC (big endian to little endian, IIRC) at 80% of native speed, and in most cases, is unnoticable. they supposedly ran a linux version of quake 2 for x86 linux on a powerbook G4, and it ran at just about native speed. couldnt tell a difference.

    is there anything like that for the PowerPC available, im willing to pay for it, or did I screw myself by selling the hackintosh? hahaha

    The only product quicktransit IBM still sells supports running linux x86 binaries on IBM's PPC chips. This isn't compatible with OS X at all.

    so basically, even if i was to buy quicktransit, (i doubt they sell to individuals), install linux on this G5, then put quicktransit on linux, id have to take windows and OSX programs and convert them over to linux with WINE or something, THEN translate them. sounds like more of a PITA than I could ever have dreamed of. thanks....
