I'm disappointed they still don't support G3 Macs. They have G3 support for other systems, and the G3 Macs are the same as the G4 (except for the occasional newer video chip), so why is there no G3 Mac support? I'd buy MorphOS for my iMac G3 in an instant if it worked.


Pretty simple: supporting G3 Macs takes time and resources better spent on higher performing machines.
IIRC the G3 Macs hardware varies much more than the G4 machines which would make it harder to support too.

The G3 iMac was the biggest seller of the time, and all models are damn near identical other than speed and amount of ram. They did a couple updates of the video chip, but most are ATI Rage. Of all G3s, it would be the easiest to support, and give a HUGE boost to the number of Macs covered. And given they DO support a couple G3s with VERY "odd" architectures, claiming the iMac G3 isn't worth supporting is bogus just on the face of it.
