Morphos I barely finished and published my MorphOS 2.3 review for OSNews, and here we have the release of MorphOS 2.4. The biggest improvement, if you could call it that, is the one thing a lot of people have been waiting for: MorphOS 2.4 includes support for the entire range of PowerPC G4 Mac Mini computers from Apple.

With 3 to 4 times the CPU power of the old EFIKA boards, Mac mini finally provides a platform where Morphos can really shine. Still, I wonder how many people with old Mac minis around will want to shell out the $150 for this. Also, given that Mac minis probably sold in fairly small numbers when compared to G4 laptops, lampshade iMacs and probably even G4 towers and cubes, I wonder how long it will be before someone gets it working on a wider array of Macs?

I tried it in my Powermac yesterday, it was the computer I'd just burnt the CD in, and only got as far as the white Quark/Open Firmwear, didn't try anything else, so tell us how you get on! Although I don't think there' much to be gained from using 2/faster processors, as it's so darn fast anyway.

A MorphOS laptop? yes please!
