It would be nice to play IL-2: FB on the newly announced PowerMac G5.

I beleive the core engine of IL-2 is built in Java en OpenGL (crossplatform languages). Porting it to the Mac-platform would be a possibility, right?

Not that it is viable, but the most elegant flightsim deserves the most elegant platform... ;-]

The most viable flightsim is already on the most viable platform/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif G5 looks interesting, but pretty expensive. Feel sorry for anyone who bought a G4 two days ago, its so nice of Apple to give advanced notice on things like this wouldnt you say? Its been said before though, flight sims are already a niche market in PC, to port something with relativly low sales over to Mac, which would maybe increase FBs sales %1, and thats being generous I think, wouldnt be economically viable.

When Erwin Rommel that British fighter-bombers had shot up my tanks with 40mm shells, the Hermann G├┬Âring who felt himself touched by this, said: "That's completely impossible. The Americans only know how to make razor blades." and the above was Rommels reply.

Talk about Nvidia cheating on benchmarks? Check out Apples cheating on benchmarks/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Looks like the G5 isnt quite so fast. Articles on Apples benchmarks are popping up all over, but the one on www.amdzone.com (http://www.amdzone.com) seems the best.
