This way, we get to stand on the shoulders of a platform who's specs are already established, and even rise with the tide of dawning hardware as it's becoming available.
(replying to myself ;)
I should add, we'll only get this chance once, as the port is happening now, if we don't direct our port at the POP platform now, the platform won't wait for us, and the tide will rise for unlicensed hardware, but we'll have to go through this whole thing again to get more boards licensed and dongleized or whatever. I've no problem starting with an A1 from Eyetech, it's all that's available... (not counting Bermuda tri^H^H^H^HDCE Pegasos) But I would like to ride the tide upwards, and what happens if Amiga decides AmigaOS is dead and DE is king and no more licenses get granted?
With a targeted platform, we have no worries about obsolecense.
