Simply keep out of the discussion about what most MorphOS-interested current and future Sam460 or X5000 owners most probably want, then ;-)
> If YOU all want to wait for the GCN cards to be supported, by all means...wait.
That's exactly the point. Tackling the GCN-based cards earlier would mean less waiting for the above-mentioned target group, wouldn't it?
> I don't have a problem starting with an R500 or R600 card
You've made that more than clear by now, but at this point, this part of the discussion isn't about you.
> Video cards are a cheap investment
Our point is not about price but about the ability to use both OS4 and MorphOS with one 3D-supported graphics card in a system that is supported by both OS.
> we have nothing like that in our repertoire.
Our point is also not about performance, see above.
> surprisingly low draw
Our point is also not about power consumption, see above.
> honestly ALL of you, GET OFF IT.
Honestly, I don't think I, takemehomegrandma or amigadave will get off our opinions as to which graphics cards we think would make the most sense for most MorphOS-interested current and future Sam460 or X5000 owners to be supported next.
> you ought to be grateful that these guys are willing to go to this much trouble.
I sure am, but I think I'm allowed to have my own opinions about alleged MorphOS team decisions, and I also think I'm allowed to venture them here on MorphZone.
