RE: Enhanced AmigaOS ? Not exactly.

You are wrong, MorphOS isn't "enhanced AmigaOS" at all, it's another OS which was first developed for PPC Amigas which is almost like AmigaOS and owns it.

It would also be the most intresting alternative os if it was open source and had more developers behind it.

It's cool arguing semantics ain't it... you happen to know that a stage and time MorphOS WAS to be AmigaOS 4, and there are many things that actually make it an 'enhaced AmigaOS', it's just that you wouldn't know what they were even if they bite you... :roll:

According to some people involved at the time, MorphOS was only being negotiated to become a stepping stone towards AmigaOS4 at a time when MorphOS was only usable as an Workbench 3.9 (/OS 3.x) host. Such an approach could have saved some time for all the parties in having something available, but the negotiations apparently failed.
