Nope. You only need to register, and you'll get everything for free.

Well, AmigaOS-like systems lack of good browser. Polish developer, Marcin "marcik" Kwiatkowski, is working on KHTML port for MorphOS.

MorphOS is an OS which was... and is creating for PPC architecture and *only* for it. IMO: It's good decision. Next nonstandard OS for x86 is needless. Isn't it?

My biggest complaint is the lack of support for common Amiga video cards. Also, no AGA support. That means that even with three different PPC accelerated Amigas, I can't run it on any of them.

Totally agree. I can't run it on my machine, and nor can my friend who has two machines. Most Amiga users has upgraded and expanded their machines and the most spread expansion isn't supported (Mediator, which adds PCI slots and there, a gfx-card is often used) so this is sort of an anti-climax. Nice that it's out, shame that there's a very restrictive hardware support so in the end, there's a very slim group of users that can try it out..

A mediator driver still may happen. 2 things are mandatory for that, a third might help additionally:

1. A mediator board for the developers (they haven't) (mandatory)
2. Documentation for the mediator (they haven't) (mandatory)
3. Donations for a mediator support bounty (well, money is always welcome, I guess) (might help)

A VERY VERY NICE gift, but it would not hurt to add in Chip Set support, and a watered down version for x86.

x86 won't happen, most likely not even after hell has frozen.

The entire OS is useless anyways since it's only available for a handful of so called 'Elite'ists. I wonder why people report this OS on OSN since nobody can really use it. On various Amiga related pages people report hard issues with it by not getting it run, regular lockups of the system and other not nice happenings.

The most recent problems surrounding MorphOS as a native PowerPC option even made their sponsor Genesi stepping away from it because it's impossible to work together with these people. Code that has been paid for was never handed over to Genesi, nor did the money that got paid for it not fruit into the results that was expected.

Nowadays the entire OS is in the hands of a small community of 'Elite'ists who decide on their own who should get the OS or updates of the OS and who not. They are registrating and unregstrating people on their own good will without taking into account whether the people who paid for the product had a legitime right for OS updates AS PROMISED before the bought or not.

So what, nothing to see here, step over to the next thread.
