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.

> Thank you. I thought it was odd to claim "native".

Yeah, I see you had trouble with that. I did explain what I meant: "MorphOS runs these 68K programs native, which sounds like an oxymoron until you consider the nature of the old Amiga OS on which MorphOS is modeled. On the Amiga programs were executed through libraries and function calls, which have been recreated in PPC code for MorphOS (there is necessarily a limited amount of emulation at the core of the execution, but MorphOS is not an emulator)."

So when you thank Kelly for saying "the non-library code is handled by a 68K cpu emulation," that is what I was saying about the limited emulation at the core of the execution. But I guess what Kelly said was clearer to you.
