Morphos In a classic case of "two more weeks", the MorphOS team has actually finally really I'm-not-kidding-you released MorphOS 2.0. This release was long-awaited, and comes packed with so many new features they might as well have called it MorphOS 3.0. "The MorphOS development is proud to announce the public release of the much anticipated version 2.0 of MorphOS. For an overview of the included new features and updates, please read our release notes. A description of the hardware requirements and installation procedures can be found here."

Hey guys, I still have that Pegasos G3 machine from 2003 that I reviewed for OSNews back then: http://www.osnews.com/story/3589/Pegasos:_An_Interesting_&_Sexy_New...

I haven't turned that machine ON since then. I wonder, does this new MorphOS version works on that old Pegasos PPC G3 machine? Anything special I need to do to install it?

Hi,
No, nothing special apart from selecting the right boot image (see below)

MorphOS 2.0 Readme:

- Turn on your Pegasos 1/2 ;)
- Press escape on the keyboard until you reach the Open Firmware prompt
- Insert the CD
- At the Open Firmware prompt, type:
(Pegasos 2) boot cd boot.img
(Pegasos 1) boot /ide/cd bootpeg1.img
- MorphOS will now start booting. Once it is done booting, follow the on screen instructions.

YES it will work - since the Pegasos is the main target hardware for this new edition of MorphOS. So you got exactly the right thing at home :-)

here is some installation guide:

Thanks for the info.

I just saw that it costs $150. I am not sure I will be purchasing it I am afraid. Not for a machine that I won't be using. Although, I don't mind writing a review if the company that sells it sends me a free key. This way everyone wins.
