I think you miss MOS6510's point, at least as I understand it.

MorphOS is interesting, but it is expensive. Their pricing structure is doing them no favors, IMHO. There are three separate price points for the exact same OS, the price varying based on the hardware you are using.

The other thing is they have locked themselves into PPC. Which means if you want to try MorphOS you either have to buy expensive new hardware, or out of date and out of service old hardware.

I personally think they would do themselves great good by picking a single SKU, and expanding their support to include ARM based hardware like the Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, pcDuino, et al.

PS: They have one other little problem, I find rather amusing: go to http://www.morphos.de and try and figure out how to buy their product. Hell to even find out the price(s) you have to go to "Help Desk" and go down a few questions.
