And we don't know what they have planned for the X5000, but since that has both PCI and PCIe X1 expansion slots, it shouldn't be a problem.
Well, at least AeonKit seems to be considering CMI8738 PCIe cards
for the X5000, so...
Whatever they decide on, our developers can write drivers for (probably faster than their developers). No big deal.
Besides, we could always pull out those cards and install an SB Live (the X5000 has PCI slots).
For that matter, I don't need updated video drivers either, I could just plug in a Radeon X1950XTX - fast, last card with 2D acceleration, 512MB of vram. Those two would hold me.
Plus there is a rumor floating around that we don't have a native lan driver for the X5000.
Again, who needs it, we can just plug in a supported network or wireless card.
The one thing we don't need is OS4, and THAT'S what's holding us up.
