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.

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!

Did your G4 Power Mac have a Radeon series card (from 7000 up to 9200)? Was it a stock Mac CPU or an upgrade? These two details could play a big part in why it didn't work for you.
