Morphos I barely finished and published my MorphOS 2.3 review for OSNews, and here we have the release of MorphOS 2.4. The biggest improvement, if you could call it that, is the one thing a lot of people have been waiting for: MorphOS 2.4 includes support for the entire range of PowerPC G4 Mac Mini computers from Apple.

I'm guessing that you're implying that morphos isn't very portable? If that's true then I would suggest they MUST perform this port to clean up any bad internal code.


I'm guessing as well, but in general, if you do not write an OS with portability in mind, it is difficult to port it afterwards. That's not to say that the code is "bad" somehow. It may be code that's beautifully tailored to the specifics of the PPC platform, but very difficult to port to ARM or Intel.
