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.

Nothing like phoning it in...

So in one article it's mentioned that a)it would be nice to know if MorphOS 2.4 works on non-Mini G4 Macs and b)that there's a dearth of non-mainstream OS articles on OSNews. These comments were made by the article author and editor of the site.

Here's a crazy idea, contact the MorphOS devs and conduct an interview that you could post. This would allow you to get direct and correct answers to your questions and provide you with content for the site. It would certainly be more interesting and informative than asking a random collection of viewers to try an OS on hardware that is not officially supported. The best you're going to get in this fashion is a bunch of comments of "Nope, doesn't work" or "Well, it kind of works". There's no context to those responses, though. No answer to "Why?". The devs could give you your hardware list and explain to you the through process(es) behind the decision.

This article represents a huge missed opportunity, truly.
