    I pride myself on ALWAYS being able to be a bigger asshole than the next guy. ;)
    Besides, David wasn't that far off base.
    Donations have only worked well with developers that have proven track records.

    I have donated computer gear to other developers in the past, but so far I have not seen any programs completed for MorphOS by any of them

    On the other hand, price of a second hand Apple computer is worth almost nothing, compared to programmer salaries.

    As for development, I have a linux server for MorphOS cross development, which I could share access to (although I think I need to do some bigger updates before sharing access to several people). It's pretty standard debian environment with ssh server.

    And an important note for less technical people: A cross development environment is never a replacement for native MorphOS system. You can get programs compiled, but you have absolutely no way to run (or debug) them.

    Without reading all the posts here this far, the cheapest MorphOS system is probably a compatible PowerMac system, if you can find one locally. Especially if physical size is no issue.

    Personally I'm pretty low on income side currently, so I can't do much more, but could probably grant the server access after some time, if needed.

    Hello! I'm a disabled person living in the Philippines. Amiga hardware is not locally available. I'm living off a small disability income, so I can't buy someone else's product. The Amiga computer does not have to be new; if it can run MorphOS and/or AmigaOS without emulation, then I can accept it. If it has AmigaOS 4.1FE on it, then that would be better.

    I previously had the Amiga 500 in 1988...

    I want to start software development on a real Amiga computer. Thanks in advance.

    Hello KuyaMarc.

    We are glad that even people from the Philippines will join this community.

    Don't worry for the cold welcome.

    This is a small community of very harsh and rude people and we have all "poisonous teeth" as in 30 years of Amiga we saw literally dozens of good projects and developments of software fail miserably or migrate to other platforms.

    So again don't worry and be happy. To be an amigan or Morphos user requires to take life as it comes, with a certain quantity of humor.
    Bill Gates "Think!", Steve Jobs: "Think different!" So... Let these guy continue blabbering thinking and enjoy computing! We are on Amiga!
