Morphos reports that bplan GmbH announced, the version of the Open Firmware shipped with the Pegasos II is faulty: after changes made by "setenv" the system does not boot anymore. There is also a small fix for a broken MorphOS 1.4 install script.

Re: AOS4 vs MorphOS

You've pretty much answered your own question. That and the reply after your post has it nailed.

I think the price of the Pegasos II is attractive, and if I were going to be running a PPC Linux, it would be fine.

But that it won't run AOS 4.0 at any time (as far as we know) means I will be out on a limb for new applications.

MorphOS could be developed to be binary compatible with AOS 4.0. That sure is possible. But I don't think I want to stake that much money on a remote possibility.

I can wait.
