Morphos "SceneCON is an annual meeting of underground computer artists who are members of the famous demo scene. With SceneCON, the organizers aim to follow the two decade old tradition of demo scene parties in Hungary. Yet, with a bit of a twist. This years party was held from the 16th until the 17th of June, 2007. Among its highlights was an extensive demonstration of bplan's EFIKA miniature mainboard running various flavours of Linux as well as a work-in-progress version of MorphOS 2.0. Luckily, the presentation was captured on video. The entire presentation has a total length of nearly an hour with MorphOS 2.0 being featured in the last 14 minutes of it."

I believe the video was more to showcase the Efika itself because they spent most of the time to show and discuss the Efika hardware. Ran 2 different Linux distros on it and also showed MorphOS working on it.

The video was somewhat dull & boring. I was hoping to see them run more Linux & MorphOS applications. They did very basic things with the OSes. No 3d, no video playing, no games, etc.

It looked more like they wanted to demonstrate that different OSes will work on the Efika.

Actually this News story should have been called "Efika Presentation" because I saw very little of MorphOS use.

MorphOS looks pretty cool by the way.
