Commissioning an U-Boot port to the Nemo board would have made the X1000 even more expensive.

Which limitation is that?

Yes, CFE is used in Broadcom-based routers from Apple, Asus, Buffalo, Linksys and Netgear, as well as in Broadcom-based Smart TVs and Blu-ray players from LG and Samsung.

I doubt Trevor's support for the MorphOS port to the X5000 has been bigger than what he would have done to support a MorphOS port to the X1000. It was the MorphOS team who declined to port to the X1000, for several reasons, including Ben Hermans' involvement in the original A-Eon company.
