Morphos This page is dedicated to providing information on running Linux on the Pegasos. ISO images included. We would love to see a better Yellow Dog Linux support and also Darwin on Pegasos.

First of all excuse for not having mentioned my nick. I hit submit without verifying that.

Well I don't know whether you know the AmigaOS from former times. Maybe you had one and played some games on it. MorphOS from idea is quite similar to what the AmigaOS was in former times. MorphOS is not yet another Windowmanager ontop of a Unixish Kernel. E.g. boot Darwin, load X11 (or framebuffer) and then put some Amiga look stuff ontop of it (or alternative run GNOME on it). This would entirely dump the idea of what Amiga was and I recommend you to read what MorphOS is from the PegasosPPC page:

http://www.pegasosppc.com/operating_systems.php

Please click and read the 'MorphOS in detail' PDF file. The entire concepts of AmigaOS are different e.g. managing of devices, managing of libraries, mimetypes, settings etc. the entire look and feel, the core, the philosophy and so on. If we use yet another Unixish core then it wouldn't make much difference using Linux or something similar at the end.
