NT4 for PPC would of course be next to useless though, given the number of NT PPC apps available - it would certainly be for curiosity purposes only. I don't think there are even any service packs or remotely modern versions of Internt Explorer for it, as MS dropped support for PPC and MIPS very soon after NT4 was released, only keeping x86 and Alpha.Personally i'd like to see a Virtualiser so we could run NT4 in a window, but on the actual PowerPC processor.
There is an OS X port called MoM (Mac-on-Mac) but it cannot run or be run in Tiger or G5s and intel Macs.Still though, there are still plenty of G3s and G4s in use to make adding Tiger compatibility worth while.I wonder how hard it would be to adapt MOL for other PPC based OSes?
Anyone who's got NT has a copy of the PPC version - all NT discs have x86, PPC, Alpha and MIPS versions on them, I have several install discs that would have originally been supplied with ordinary PCs but have all of the architectures on them. Same with NT 3.x, which also included all of these architectures. Windows 2000 was x86 only, though an Alpha version was produced up to RC1 and then dropped for the final release.NT 4 for PPC is real, and I, in fact, own a copy . . . somewhere . . .
Yes, I have an OEM set with an NT4 disc and SP3 disc - the OS disc contains all four architectures, whereas the Service Pack contains only x86 and Alpha, as they had dropped support for the other two architectures by then. The service pack CDs were always shipped separately with NT4, as it was not possible to slipstream a service pack into the main installation CD like it is with Windows 2000 onwards - nowadays they just integrate the latest SP into the main disc.I have NT4 CD's with Service Pack 4, and they support PowerPC processors. However the Service Pack 4 CD is separate, despite being bundled in the box, and likely only for x86 systems.
