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, I have .txt files here, and .jpg files and .avi files here, and while there are apps installed in the system that can handle these VERY COMMON file formats, the OS doesn't load anything neither I get an "open with" menu (it just loads a shell with an error message and that disturbs me a lot). I didn't like this unorganization of the OS.

Also, an .lha a-la winzip application is needed (using the shell is working fine, but it could be made easier)."

This all works in AmigaOS 3.9 - the various types of file show up with appropriate icons. Click on the icon and the player or unarchiver runs. So it should not be too hard to add it to MorphOS.
