Morphos Not too long ago we published a review of AmigaOS 4.1, which made some readers argue we should take a look at MorphOS as well. However, nobody currently makes any MorphOS compatible hardware, so I had nowhere to go and beg. Luckily, OSNews reader AmigaRobbo generously offered to loan me his EFIKA machine, with MorphOS installed. I took a look at MorphOS, and found a very quick and efficient operating system - which was sadly held back by the limitations of the EFIKA.

the number of ex-Amigans is dwindling, and dwindling fast


Wait what? They're all dying?

I think what he means is that eventually people will tire of not being able to use their favorite OS on the hardware available to them. This in turn forces them to move on. I may be wrong though.

I think he meant "the number of ex-Amigans still using an Amiga or Amiga-like platform", but he made it sound as if the actual number of ex-Amigans was decreasing, which could only mean they're dying off ;) .

No they are giving up.
I had a pegasos 1 but tossed it in the bin a while ago after dong nothing with it for ages.
Crappy slow hardware with a awfully slow memory interface.

What?! You threw away perfectly good (as in: working) hardware?? You should've given it away, at the least. Next time, contact me first ;)
