MorphOS on P5-HW has been shown on several occasions, but I doubt the reasons why it isn't public have changed or will ever change.
The Sonnet+Mediator+WarpOS hack only works cos the real OS (AmigaOS3.x) is still running on the 68k side of things.
Without it you'd have no way to access KBD, floppy onboard-IDE/SCSI or Zorro cards.
As for the iMac (to get somewhat BTT) 1st I had it at Geits (and running MorphOS) was 6 years ago so thats for sure not the newsworthy part of that picture !!
The only reason I have ever seen posted was that we already have a lot of supported hardware.
But the late 2005 G5 would be a great model to have with its PCIe expansion slots.
