I strongly doubt this would be possible. And if yes, then it will be
something like real PC with Janus on top of it. Not that bad idea, but the
compatibility would not be too high, I think. But once they use 68040,
anything but GEM apps won't run on it, anyway.

When I am thinking about it - yes, that's a really cool idea (to build a
normal PC and just design a 68030 card).

But then, an IBM 200/MX with Gemulator is probably faster than Afterburner
and you need not to bother with developing hardware at all.

Do we really need a new, not too much compatible hardware when there's the
Gemulator? :-)
