Morphos As we all know, the MorphOS team recently released MorphOS 2.4, which added support for the PowerPC G4 version of Apple's Mac Mini. Even though this long-awaited 'feature' is a very welcome one, I personally think that of all the G4 Macs MorphOS could support, the Mini is the least interesting. As such, I want to find out if any other G4 Macs happen to be supported too - without us knowing about it.

I'm not aware of any way to access the EFI on Intel Macs the way you could access Openfirmware on the ppc Macs. EFI is modular and a control interface need not be included if the OEM doesn't wish to, and I do not believe Apple included any type of EFI shell other than the boot device selector (hold down option key at boot-up, or C to boot from CD/DVD) . I really loved Openfirmware though, too bad there's no x86 systems that have it or another CLI-based boot firmware. Might be time for me to find a decently-priced Sparc workstation, I've always wanted one of those and that's where Openfirmware originated.
