The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 3.4, which introduces faster R300 graphics drivers, improved video playback on G5-based systems, support for non-native display resolutions on various PowerBooks, screen blanker password protection, and numerous bug fixes and other improvements. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

Some serious improvements in there. Their market is probably small, but they release new versions at a relatively stable pace. One of the very few alternative operating systems that has managed to survive over the years where so many others fell.

Just to play devil's Advocate, there aren't that many apps to run on MorphOS, and if you are a modern user a web browser is one of them.

I currently have 6 Browser windows open with between 2 and 20ish tabs in each — each one representing a different subject. I admit this isn't that typical, but even my wife likes to keep 2-3 browser windows open.

So I wouldn't simply dismiss this issue.

Obviously use whatever OS makes you happy, and more power to you. I am mostly shocked this issue doesn't seem to have been addressed.
