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.

Ever since I caught wind of the MorphOS project back in, maybe, '06 I've wanted to give it a try. I was a bit shocked to find it was only available for such an obscure platform. I would almost be willing to find an EFIKA if Morph was open source.

As others have said, ARM would be a nice choice. I'm already hoping the Haiku ARM port will be successful.

They are still available:-

But it's not Open Source. An important fact about MorphOS that was not in the review, is that they key file to stop the demo version from timing out after 30 minutes costs 150 Euro. http://www.morphos.de/news.html
