Yeah, but all this debugging options are annoying, tiring and slow because for whatever reason you have no version of MOS hosted on top of Linux or Mac (instead of Quark) so you cannot do nice fast (reboot os + app in fractions of a second) debugging on single machine with everything still running at basically native speed and your tools (text editors) staying up and untouched after full OS crashes and tons of debug output also basically not slowing down things much at all. And possibility to use gdb and hardware watchpoints and stuff.
While MorphOS doesn't run hosted, it does run in QEMU. This offers all the same benefits as running hosted, and allows for even more flexibility than running hosted (since I can easily do the debugging and testing on any system, regardless of the host platform).
I do most of my debugging (except things that really are specific to some exact hardware) on my MacBook Pro M1 Pro.
