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.

The other way round would be : MorphOS is not ready for the use of a keyboard... MorphOS is an OS without an Networkstack for the internet. Its a connectionloss maschine.

Since when is a TCP/IP stack a part of an OS, really?
Well, actually, there has been a new TCP/IP stack in development for quite a while now, by Olaf Bartel, one of the Amiga senior developers. However, due to licencing issues, with this stack being used both by AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS, the Roadshow stack can't be delivered for MorphOS until it is delivered for AmigaOS 4, whenever that ships.
A sad state, but the stack is at least something to look forward to, being based on newer BSD sources (it's a virus!) than AmiTCP or Miami.

Linux is on the Destop. Linux is growing on the desktop. Linux (ask SuSE Linux AG for the study) holds more marketshare on the Desktop as Apple does today.
Linux can be used as a multi.media.box (SuSE 8.2 comes, for example, with MainActor, this something that compete with Apples iMovie), a.s.o.


Interestingly, I ran MainActor on my Amiga almost ten years ago. ;-)
