Amiga & AROS Low End Mac's Sebastian Patten takes a look at MorphOS 3. "MorphOS is for Amiga users. Period. And it's for those Macintosh users who like to experiment and experience a new operating system on their PowerPC Macs. That's where I see myself, and I had a lot of fun playing around with MorphOS on my eMac. It is not a full OS X replacement, but it can come close to it, depending on your computer needs."

If MorphOS would run on a Raspberry Pi it would make it very easy for users to give it a good go.


Although it would be nice, I fear nothing else is like using the old Amigas.

For those of you that aren't developers, it is quite a different set of sensations, coding some clever Assembly capable of driving the blitters to do animations, together with the sound chips. Or trying to achieve something similar with OpenGL/OpenCL/OpenSL .

This cannot be achieved any longer in current hardware generations.

Maybe I am getting old. ;)
