Morphos And the MorphOS team continues to expand their hardware support. They released MorphOS version 2.5 today, which adds support for Apple's eMac computers (the 1.25Ghz models, the 1.42 models have not yet been tested). Of course, there's also a whole load of fixes and improvements, too.

Still waiting for the PowerBook version...

Running on a G4 clocked at 1.67 GHz, MorphOS should be really a spectacle show.

I've got it running on a 1.25 GHz MacMini and whilst it is very fast, performance can be sporadic when using OWB. The OS itself is stunning for a niche operating system, but I have fought far too much than is comfortable with bad design partly inherit to Amiga's history. I find it an impressive piece of work, but a tough operating system to love. I want to write a review but I am always left questioning alternative operating systems themselves as I try to reconcile the many hurdles I found trying to do very basic tasks.

This is an OS for Amigans. No effort is made for anybody else.

I'm looking forward to trying out 4.2.5 and I hope they've improved in ways that will let me gather my thoughts and come to a conclusion as to what this OSes place is.
