Morphos The MorphOS team seems to be on a roll. Recently, they added support for the PowerPC G4 Mac mini models from Apple, meaning it suddenly became a lot easier to get your hands on a computer capable of running MorphOS. As expected, the team has now announced that a release with PowerMac G4 support is coming as well.

I absolutely second that emotion, especially since last time I looked (about 18 months ago) I was not able to get 3D acceleration for my ATI card with Linux, and sluggish wasn't the word. I suspect a lot of people have G4s about the place, to date unloved and unused. Yes, you can run OS 9 on them, or earlier versions of OS X, but the former is obviously no longer developed, and in the latter case, Apple's OS upgrade attrition model means that applications tend to fall off for anything older than the last two iterations of OS X.

All power to you, I say.
