Morphos Amiga.org 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.

>> Uhh both AOS and MorphOS ars insignifigant insects to gateszilla and his Windows. Windows has the name, the marketing push and vendor support. The AOS vs MorphOS battle is futile, the real battle is if any will be able to surive in a Windows world which I hate to say it is. <<

That isn't the point.

There certainly is plenty of room for another OS to carve out a niche.

Hey... OS/2 is still being sold and supported (eComCenter).

And AmigaOS has LOTS of fans out there. Some think MorphOS is the future of AmigaOS, and others think AmigaOS 4.0 is...

The idea isn't to BEAT Windows. Just to provide an alternative.

But, to take your idea and run with it...

It's stupid for AmigaOS and MorphOS to try to convert each others users. That pool of potential customers is WAY too small to matter for survival of either platform.

Each has to lure previous Amiga Owners and present owners who haven't yet decided on either platform AND be compelling to people in the PC and Mac world who would be attracted to what they have to offer.

One doesn't have to give up their Mac or PC to own an Amiga or run AmigaOS/MorphOS...

It's not an either/or choice.

I own a Palm AND a Dell Axim. It's not either/or.

I also own BeOS. I didn't have to kill all my other systems to do that.

The game here is to be compelling and attractive to users, NOT to beat Windows or even take a significant portion of it's userbase.
