Still living from the past and software already available on alternatives like GNU/Linux and BSD. Where are the exclusive and revolutionaire killer apps like in the old Amiga days? Things changed a lot, and Amiga is not more than a nostalgic dream now.

About Ambient, I don't see it so actively developed.

The website doen't work properly and lacks a news section: http://morphosambient.sourceforge.net

And the SCM is not active since... April 04 2009! http://cia.vc/stats/project/ambient

Seriously, I appreciate MorphOS and would love to see more activity. It seems the project is losing fuel.

What about porting Ambient to AROS? Maybe that could reactivate the develpment. AROS needo a proper desktop manager, sorry but Wanderer is not my thing.

What about Reggae? It's one of the most promissing amiga-like technologies, a proper evolution of the great amiga datatype concept like "Translators" from BeOS. Is going to be massively used or not?

What about the future direction of MorphOS? Is going to be simply a (very good) enhaced AmigaOS clone or there is a solid roadmal and WIP effort in making a total great evolution of the AmigaOS concept into something fresh and innovative?

MorphOS Team are more secretive than Apple and Nintendo at same time, that's very frustrating and make users to get bored waiting for the next big thing.
