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.

Thanks Thom. I'm tempted to try it out on my eMac but haven't got it set up yet (in the middle of moving to London).

Does anybody now any MorphOS forums? Maybe they have some pointers.

It won't boot on anything other than a Mac Mini G4(any version), so don't waste your time trying to get it to work on an eMac, PowerMac or whatever.

But with any Mac Mini it will work. I recommend the 1.5Ghz model with 64MB vram. I picked two up from a local buy/sell site cheap.

There are forums on http://www.morphzone.org and you can talk directly to the MorphOS developers on IRC at irc.freenode.net on channel #morphOS

I recommend downloading the really great mplayer port, Wookiechat for IRC

You can also find MorphOS software here:

http://morphos.lukysoft.cz/en/

or

http://www.morphos-news.de

or on Aminet at

http://www.aminet.net. Look for the blue butterfly logo which identifies MorphOS native software. However most system-friendly older Amiga 68K software works.

Make sure you also check out http://www.amigazeux.net which has some really cool OS utilities.
