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.

Heck, OWB 1.7 supports HTML5 video/audio, meaning that MorphOS is more capable on the Internet out of the box than Windows 7 out of the box (IE8).


I don't disagree with anything you said - apart from the above. Windows 7 does "come" with IE8, but almost as soon as you boot the OS it downloads the Browser ballot (silently) and unless you catch it in time to cancel, it reboots*, installs the update and asks you to choose which browser you want. It will not shut up till you pick one. I chose IE8 because I really, really couldn't hack it bugging me and I was on a train with no WiFi or internet access.

* I was 90% through writing a document on the way to work at the time and it LOST my document as I had not remembered to turn on autosave for some idiotic reason (or it just wasn't working in office 2003 under Windows 7.)

EDIT: oh and these days, "out of box" no longer means "on the installation media" because so many OS require an online update soon after initial boot up.
