Morphos "SceneCON is an annual meeting of underground computer artists who are members of the famous demo scene. With SceneCON, the organizers aim to follow the two decade old tradition of demo scene parties in Hungary. Yet, with a bit of a twist. This years party was held from the 16th until the 17th of June, 2007. Among its highlights was an extensive demonstration of bplan's EFIKA miniature mainboard running various flavours of Linux as well as a work-in-progress version of MorphOS 2.0. Luckily, the presentation was captured on video. The entire presentation has a total length of nearly an hour with MorphOS 2.0 being featured in the last 14 minutes of it."

just a little idea: to begin the one-hour video with the 14 minutes of MorphOS 2.0 or my guess is that MorphOS video will be only for the happy few. But, it is already like that, no?

Not a problem if you use the Google video link, you can skip to any part of the video.

I believe the video was more to showcase the Efika itself because they spent most of the time to show and discuss the Efika hardware. Ran 2 different Linux distros on it and also showed MorphOS working on it.

The video was somewhat dull & boring. I was hoping to see them run more Linux & MorphOS applications. They did very basic things with the OSes. No 3d, no video playing, no games, etc.

It looked more like they wanted to demonstrate that different OSes will work on the Efika.

Actually this News story should have been called "Efika Presentation" because I saw very little of MorphOS use.

MorphOS looks pretty cool by the way.

3D, video, games? It's hard to believe that such things can work on this computer and, probably, it is not intended to do that. 400MHz processor is just to slow and 128 MB of RAM is not enough for that in my opinion. Even on this presentation it is visible that linux loads quite a long time (especially SUSE with KDE). Morph OS looks great, but they didn't show any heavier programs running on it. OS is responsive, however, is it usable?
