Paladin of the Pegasos

I think the Efika is a bit too weak for development. Not only the cpu power is limited, also the ide is - well - slow. And teh Ram is limited (nevertheless I like my Efika quite a lot, but not as main maschine)
I am located in Germany and would have a spare Pegaos 1 (G3/600 of course) that I could borrow for a long time (it's collectimg dust). The maschine is with MorphOS 1.4.5 though.
I think a Mac mini is the smarter choice. It's tiny, it's fast, it's cheap. Only prob with the mini: you cannot test analog recording mode (no audio in on the mini). Dunno though if this matters much and probably there would be some kind Pegasos or Efika user willing to betatest that (dunno whether I am actually kind or not, but a little testing would be easy).
A Peg2 would be perfect could host both MorphOS and AmigaOS4. The Powermac MorphOS version is unfortunately not ready yet, otherwise these devices would make a nice development platform, too.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
