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.

OSX, Linux, etc.

Hi "frank" ...we are running OSX and Safari nearly everyday from a PowerBook G4. We have another laptop running XP. We also have various developers running MacOS 9.x and OSX on Pegasos machines all over the world. They have made a choice to do that. We have tried all the Linux distros mentioned on the Pegasos and have YDL installed on this machine too. We try to keep up with what is happening.

According to the Google stats referenced above Microsoft dominates the OS market with 90+%. We all know that. We think that one day, when a hardware, OS and application package ALL-IN-ONE arrives with everything *they* can offer and more we can start discussing "prime time." That is just our opinion. We think as long as you do not have the FREEDOM and flexibility to manipulate all the pieces you will not have a solution on its way to "prime time." Hopefully, that explains our position better...;-)

We think we are on our way to launching the first Computer Revolution of the 21st century. :-D Freedom, value, and flexibility (forward compatibility and scalability) are the key words we think about. Mobility is next. Imagine 90+% of the worlds smart OS people thinking about what they can do LEGALLY with a Pegasos based on a PPC (and with corporate/community support!). We are hoping we can trigger some innovation and maybe a quantum leap or two...;-)

Sincerely,
Raquel and Bill
