Morphos Not too long ago we published a review of AmigaOS 4.1, which made some readers argue we should take a look at MorphOS as well. However, nobody currently makes any MorphOS compatible hardware, so I had nowhere to go and beg. Luckily, OSNews reader AmigaRobbo generously offered to loan me his EFIKA machine, with MorphOS installed. I took a look at MorphOS, and found a very quick and efficient operating system - which was sadly held back by the limitations of the EFIKA.

Thom Holwerda, wow, nice review. It is amazing to read from semi-mainstream reviewer how responsive MorphOS on such a light processor, and so sad to read how crippled by just 128 megs RAM.

There are a lot of strong contributions to the OS itself to make MorphOS as good as it is. On the app side lately, Fab Couerjoly (sp?) has furnished not one but two cornerstone GREAT apps: OWB port and mPlayer port. MPlayer on MorphOS particularly is incredible and way above IMO its implementation on other platforms.

If the MorphOS Team does a *solid* PPC Mac mini version of their OS, it'll be a real gamechanger. Such hardware, although second-hand, is readily available. The release will stir a lot of interest and I hope you and others get to review it right away, maybe even a pre-release review.

Nice job!
