Morphos Genesi was very kind to send us in a fully featured Pegasos-based computer with MorphOS and Debian pre-installed. Here is our review with a number of screenshots of the supported OSes. Update: That machine has now being donated to the Computer History Museum in the Bay Area.

Well, that's only half of the truth. In fact the complete A-
Box crashes, but the quark kernel (and therefore MorphOS)
still work. The only problem is that you would have to
restart the whole A-BOX because the display drivers, etc.
are currently running in A-BOX. However these will later be
moved into Q-Box, so that in fact you can then simply
restart the whole A-Box which then doesn't "feel" like the
whole OS has been crashed.

But these are just minor technical details.

IMHO this is a really great review for thios new
alternative platform.

BTW: Those of you who don't like the UI (and want to provide the best UI ever!), think they can
contribute software or have lots of other nice ideas about moving the platform ahead, please contact Bill Buck and Raquel Velasco (bbrv@genesi.lu) directly. Every contribution is very welcome.
