Morphos The Efika motherboard is now available for the promised pricetag of USD 99. On top of that, MorphOS 1.5 2.0 is apparently on its way, and it will support hardware accelerated transparent windows, among other things. Screenshots and pictures can be found at MorphZone. As promised, MorphOS 2.0 will run on the Efika.

Price is right but...

Now the question is: does it make sense to spend $375 for a 400 MHz desktop computer nowadays?
Don't get me wrong: the price is right for a little, custom piece of hardware built in only some hundreds. Nobody will care to sell something like that for less. But I think the time for 400 MHz processors on the desktop is gone. If you look at the chip specs, you'll see it is clearly geared toward embedded and automotive market (I2C, CAN, etc.). It supports ATA, DDR and PCI just because they're so widely used and cheap, they also are in our cars.
