Whatever happened to the promised support for PowerUp? While people are discussing the meaning of "promise" and "support" I want to ask what the final outcome of MorphOS for PowerUP machines is. web archive (20030602171643) of www.morphos.net/support.php3. Was it ever promised? Not? Versions? Support? When? The mention of CSPPC and BlizzPPC was there for more than 3 years before it vanished when morphos.de/morphos.net became ..uhm.. genesized. :)

Where is MorphOS for CSPPC? : Comment 73 of 78ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 70 (Tronman):

Sure, if you dont mind sitting there and waiting.. I have several USB/Firewire disks ranging from 40GB and up. There are times I just want to dump data to/from them, and with slow USB this is not fun. Also I have actually used high resolution scanners on faster USB and it is indeed.. faster.

At least it is your moot point, since you brought it up :)

So you are saying that it works? Great, I didnt expect it to be bogus, I just said that is slower than it could be. And for me this is of importance due to the other USB hardware I have, when I first read the Pegasos2 specs I thought it was a typing mistake or something.

Well.. there are number of USB related things I can simply not do with Poseidon that I do daily from linux, be it ethernet over USB, bluetooth, audio.. :)

Luckily I have had no such issues with my A3000. I have a temperature sensors in mine and I have never seen them go past 55°C.

Oddly this was not a problem with MorphOS 0.4 was it? Or linux for that matter. Are you suggesting that the new MorphOS is less flexible? :)

Installing a newer OS is considered turning it into a hot rod? Heh.
The old box is quite adequate to test-run a "lean and mean" OS like MorphOS.

More moot points.. :)

Ah well, soon enough I can simply install PearPC on a sufficiently fast PC and try MorphOS on that (I understand that even BBRV likes the idea). Or, something amazing like a new and improved Pegasos might show up, one that I might buy.
