Morphos A video of MorphOS 2.0 booting on a Mac Mini [.mpeg] (PPC, of course) has appeared, indicating that MorphOS 2.0 might support Apple's Mac Mini. MorphOS developer Harry Sintonen says: "The port is real and 'official'. However, it is unlikely that any Mac version would make it to the first MOS 2.0 batch: Pegasos I, Pegasos II, and Efika come first. This Mac port is not ready either, so hold your horses."

I'd much rather have the future of desktop operating systems based on any of the big 'hobby' operating systems, either the "out of date" (BeOS or Amiga OS) or their succesors (MorphOS, AROS, Haiku) than GNOME/KDE+free UNIX, OS X or Windows Vista. If only because of resource usage... But I'm quite sure if you start digging, the underdogs all have their design advantages over the big guns, who really only seem to distinguish themselves by what are in my mind 'redundant' or easily imitable features (more advanced graphics, for instance). But there are things in BeOS or Amiga OS that you don't just add run out and to something like OS X with its huge installed base and millions of lines of written code that people are making money off now..
