    Without anyone ever really addressing the elephant in the room, why are we not going to support the final, best PPC Mac?


    Because:
    1. The standard configuration contains incompatible gfx card, and we don't like flashing;
    2. Some additional drivers are required, mainly Ethernet;
    3. Some additional coding/hacking/reverse engineering the hardware is required, e.g. fan control, CPU voltage etc;
    4. Who needs another PPC anyway? x64 support is nigh!
    5. Did I say we don't like flashed gfx cards?

    (above points - well, except for the number 4 - are a summary of my correspondence with some of the MorphOS team members)
