The 68060 was quite a bit different then the 680x0 that were released before
it (they started taking things out of the hardware at that point). A 68060
will not boot Mac OS (even with the voltage adapter board used in 040 to 060
conversions for the Amiga) and from what I recall needed emulation done in
software to work correctly on the Amiga as well.
