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.

"doesn't Intel architecture let you do that?"

I would have to say no, not really. The Pegasos features an
open firmware system that lets multiple operating systems
co-exist on the same machine rather than trying to deal with
things like the MBR and PC bios that honestly don't complement
other OSes well in my opinion. I found it about 10 times better
to setup and install both MorphOS and Linux on this system from
scratch. MicroSoft and PC manufacturers honestly do not make PCs
to run anything other than Windows. They may be aware of the
existence of Linux and other operating systems but the majority
will not "lift a finger" to actually support them or move them
forward in the marketplace. The PC industry as a whole doesn't
seem to understand the users that want to actually learn something
about their computers and maybe even do some more advanced things
with them... ;)
