Morphos As we all know, the MorphOS team recently released MorphOS 2.4, which added support for the PowerPC G4 version of Apple's Mac Mini. Even though this long-awaited 'feature' is a very welcome one, I personally think that of all the G4 Macs MorphOS could support, the Mini is the least interesting. As such, I want to find out if any other G4 Macs happen to be supported too - without us knowing about it.

MorphOS 2.4 runs very well on my PPC Mac mini from the first time I tried it. I've just used the liveCD functionality so far. It recognized my kb, which is the original one that came with my Mac mini, and the Logitech USB mouse I have connected through the kb. Sound worked. All that was required to get networking to work was to enter network preferences and click "use." After that I could run either of the include web-browsers.

I think I've heard a couple reports that that silvery flat keyboard marketed (as an inexpensive replacement?) by Apple doesn't work, but I imagine the MorphOS Team will issue an update for this in very little time.

The mini has never come with either a keyboard or a mouse. What keyboard are you using?
