Wow, you sure read a lot into that post that simply wasn't there.
Anyway, my point is how can you seriously develop software for a platform you don't even have access to, that you don't run, and can't test your own SW on? Don't you think you might risk making an announcement that "hey, I have just released a new SW with all these features", only to hours later having to make follow-up posts that "oops, it turns out that when users actually tested it, the thing didn't really work".
I'm not at all against people begging for freebies, not you not anyone. Try asking, maybe you get lucky, who knows? And I can see how OS4 HW can be out of reach for most people, when a system costs between USD $1,000 - $2,500+, but I don't see how a $50 eMac can possibly be out of reach for anyone really wanting to having their SW running on MorphOS? It can't be a problem for anyone in the developed western world. Power Mac's can also be found ridiculously cheap. Mac Mini's aren't really that expensive either, and they are just as small as an Efika, while offering good power.
You do what's best for you of course, and if waiting for a free "G2" Efika is what's best for you, then go ahead, or (even better for you) send an e-mail to that guy in Andreas' links that's willing to buy HW on a charity basis to needing developers, and present to him your case.
It was just that I was a bit surprised that you as a developer devoted to making MorphOS versions of your SW hadn't even bothered to get a system running it already, but that's none of my business I guess...
