I don't really want to comment in this thread, but here goes anyway...
Whoever it was who posted about that you shouldn't buy hardware for MorphOS until MorphOS is actually released with support for said hardware is absolutely right. You shouldn't. We do not and can not make any guarantees about the release date or hardware support of future MorphOS releases.
That being said, let's also kill some of the conspiracy theories. The X5000 firmware resides on a micro SD card, so unless you manage to break the micro SD slot on the motherboard, installing a new firmware on the X5000 is completely risk free.
We do have the X5000 firmware source code and should we ever need to, we can create our own firmware images for the X5000. No one can stop us from doing that, legally or otherwise.
For everything else, feel free to continue speculating :)
