He gave up confidentiality when he brough his development machine to the show for everybody to see. And that he must have got it way before is pure common sense.
Oh, absolutely. Trevor mentioned the idea of offering at least one to the developers a long time ago.
I'm just amazed that Frank (AND all the other developers) have the time and energy to pursue so many different projects.
While others may find the SAM460 more interesting (because of the much lwer price), I just don't see the point of buying a system with less power than a G4 Mac (except that they are available new and have a PCI-e expansion slot).
And it would not surprise me if the difficulties with the SAM port stem from issues with its processor.
In any case, I am thrilled with this development.
Its something many of us have been hoping for a few years.
