Morphos Genesi has launched their EFIKA developer's program. The EFIKA is a "performance evaluation board based around the MPC5200B PowerPC system-on-chip from Freescale Semiconductor" The only thing you need to do, so it seems, is post a possible use for the EFIKA board on a thread on Power.org.

Oh, it's not about forgiving - as I said, Genesi did mistakes and I'm all for getting it sorted.

So pointing potential new volunteers to past experiences of other coders, employees, etc. is absolutely fine with me.

But as much as I'm not requesting anyone to forgive, I'm also not asking for a crusade by third parties (supposedly) in the name of such 'victims'. [Remark: I'm not using the quotation marks in a way of denying that there would have been victims but just because I've not been a witness of those parties' agreements with Genesi.]

I.e. I do not welcome a blackening of Genesi at places like OSNews where it might jeopardize the company's business with other companies (since visitors from the outside of the Amiga market most likely won't be able to judge that stuff in context and therefore might overrate it without it really being anything to worry about for them).

But I've zoned out already. As I said, telling individual coders about that "black mark" you're talking about is fine with me. But since my concern indeed is MorphOS (although not in such a way that I'd forgive anything if they just save my favourite OS), I'm also saying that everyone in the Amiga market is perfectly aware of that "black mark". Thus there is absolutely nothing new one could tell us Amiga users in this regard - there simply is noone left who would still have to be "warned".

Therefore I'd wish everything would be kept where it belongs and where everyone is familiar with the situation to judge it within the context where it belongs. I.e. keep the Amiga stuff on the Amiga forums and don't transfer it to general forums.

That's what I was aiming at with 'drawing a line'. Things would be different if there would be further "black marks" also elsewhere - but in the Linux market or with Polaris they aren't.

So as long as Genesi doesn't make new mistakes, I'm for giving it a rest for now - or at least keeping that more than two year old stuff at the Amiga forums where it belongs.
