Morphos Bright days ahead for the Amiga world. AROS is doing well, AmigaOS4 is getting one heck of a machine in the AmigaOne X1000, and MorphOS continues its development at a brisk pace. Version 2.6 of MorphOS, currently in development, will add support for (G4, I'm assuming) PowerMacs, which, alongside support for the Mac Mini and eMac, gives MorphOS a solid base of used hardware to run on.

Alternative OS's are cool, but, really. Upcoming support for a 10 year old system?

I know PPC is important to the Amiga crowd because it has long been an upgrade path for 68k Amiga machines, but it also was for Apple machines, and now, x86 is the upgrade path for PPC.

I know supporting PPC is important for supporting existing software, but it isn't something that'll drive development of new software, and I think that is more important.

If only x86 wasn't the only way to go for decent desktops, the PC world would be much more exciting. Maybe I'm too pragmatic for my own enjoyment...
