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.

>> Actually, so far I've seen about... uh... 2 or 3 native applications for AOS4 _announced_, whilst there are tens of native applications for MOS already available. The "Amiga" name is worth zilch nowadays. <<

How much have you been looking?

There's more apps for AOS4 then that just coming from Hyperion itself...

And MorphOS does has the benefit of having been released and in a 1.4.x version. AOS 4.0 is really a 1.0 release.

And it will only become available to developers to develop for in the next few weeks.

MorphOS is not a bad OS. It looks quite nice. But, I wouldn't crow too loudly right now. Once AOS 4 is in release, it will become obvious that AOS will win the battle because of the name, the marketing push, and the vendor support.

MorphOS may be technically superior. May be quite nice.

That didn't help BeOS, OS/2 and other technically superior OSes that didn't make it.

If money were no object for me, I'd have a Peg II. It looks like a nice board, and MorphOS looks good.

But I only have enough money to make one shot at this. And my shot is going to be for an AmigaONE and AOS 4.

I'll pay more for that. But, I'll get more as well.
