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."

I just noticed that the Efika--which is the only machine that is not listed as discontinued on Genesi's site--only goes up to 400MHz, as compared to up to 1GHz with the Pegasos I/II. That's pretty freaking wimpy. It seems there isn't any *decent* available hardware being sold for this OS after all.

You'll be surprised what performance a 400MHz CPU can deliver.
My main desktop is a 450 MHz Celeron (which is a lot less effective than the Efika PowerPC) and there are few things I can't do, most due to the crappy integrated graphics card.
You won't use it for compilation, hd playback, video editing or similar tasks, but it is still very usable as long as you use the right applications.

Morph OS is supposed to be very media and resource friendly (similar to BeOS) and even a comparatively "slow" computer will be very usable with such software.
