The reason why I reacted a bit was cause I dont see Trevors actions as a hindrance to the "community". He has created a positive vibe with his positive drive/attitude. That positive atmosphere seems to be somewhat fading now, as the OS development is lagging faar behind for utilization of the "new" PPC hardware.
But I concede to your point that he could have done MORE if he had focused ALL this energy into a FPGA group like Apollo Team, or his own project in that direction.
The Vampire seems to generate alot of buzz, one can only hope it translates into some nice updates of older software to work well with higher monitor resolution, and take advantage of "everyone" having 68060+++ level performance with 128 megabyte of ram. Something that was rather scarse just a month or two back.
