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.

Pffft. PS3 is a much easier target than 360 which is totally closed. At least PS3 has a history of supporting an 'other' OS. Of course they dropped that on the slim model, but the older models are still on shelves (barely). Also the 360 does funky stuff to make it seem as though you have multiple CPUs. The PS3, to all intents and purposes, only has one CPU, which is all an Amiga-like OS can support anyway. 2D acceleration, while not ideal, is plenty for a desktop experience, and 512meg is not a showstopper for such small footprint OSes with traditionally small apps. If you leave the Cell stuff alone for all but 3D or movie playback it would be a neat little low cost machine to run an OS on. With standard hardware and a large installed hardware base I would have thought a port to PS3 would be a no-brainer. Indeed OS4 devs openly contemplated how they might go about using the cells, so at least there is some thought in that direction.
