Morphos The MorphOS team seems to be on a roll. Recently, they added support for the PowerPC G4 Mac mini models from Apple, meaning it suddenly became a lot easier to get your hands on a computer capable of running MorphOS. As expected, the team has now announced that a release with PowerMac G4 support is coming as well.

Now MorphOS supports hardware that is as recent as six years old! What a truly worthwhile project!

Four years old, with plenty of life left, but in need of a good OS, with OS X PPC support all around being nil. Straight Debian is OK, but not great.

*scratches head* it supports my notebook, 8 years old, as well as Linux, and a bit better than Xorg. If I could afford to max out the RAM, it would be its primary OS. For a new MS OS, it's rather exceptional, in that regard. At least bash MS for what they do wrong.

Still cheaper and with better availability than Amiga OS 4 hardware.

Absolutely. In fact, it's a bit annoying that they're finally doing something that a lot of enthusiasts were suggesting five years ago.
