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.

Amiga legacy
by Johan Rönnblom on Mon 19th May 2003 20:52 UTC

I think many of the issues Eugenia has are related to the fact that
most people involved in the project so far have an Amiga background
and can easily solve many of the problems she mentions (TCP stack,
editor, mimetypes etc) by just copying some Amiga stuff (some of which
have MorphOS ports already). But of course, this is not so easy if
you've *not* been using an Amiga for the last few years, so the
remarks are perfectly justified (and quite constructive).

When it comes to user interface.. well I guess people have different
taste. I think Windows is horrible in this respect, MacosX is ok, but
personally I like tiny buttons and UI components because they give me
more workspace (and because I'm good at aiming ;-). So I hope we'll
see several included skins, some which satisfy the people who want a
"large" UI, some which give you a very compact UI.
