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.

I'm showing my age here, but ... it just really bothers me to think of any OS, especially one that's supposed to be a viable alternative/derivative for AmigaOS, as being "crippled" by "only 128M" of RAM!

I remember being ecstatic when I souped-up my A2000 with a GVP SCSI board that allowed me to have a whopping additional 2M RAM, with a 250M Quantum hard drive -- this setup gave me an amazing 3M RAM.

It's a shame that MorphOS is facing this problem in the hardware platform it's currently supported on.

Please dont't take my comments to be a criticizm of the programmers on this project -- it looks like they've done an amazing job, especially given the constraints they've been working within. I'd love to see MorphOS thrive & grow ... we can never have enough OS choices ;)
