This still provides a second-life for a number of older Apple hardware no longer supported by Apple.


A second life to do what? Again this is my question: Aside from running a browser, what apps can I run? What makes MorphOS interesting? What makes it compelling? Why should I spend 100+ EUR when I could install Linux, and have a better answer to why I should use it.

If you want to run MorphOS, AROS, QNX, Syllable, whatever, more power to you; I will not stand in your way and I will eagerly listen to your war stories.

However if you (and by that I mean the MorphOS folk) want me to be interested in MorphOS then they got to give a reason. But what about it is worth $150?

Because I could run Linux, or even just continue to run OSX and run an out of date/obscure browser, and it would be cheaper.

By the way, BlackBerry now has (or soon will have) just ~5,000 employees. This changes the equation even more.

BlackBerry is cutting 4500 jobs. 12700 - 4500 = 8200. But that doesn't actually change the point I was trying to make.
