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.

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

I guess it's true that Amiga differs a lot from other OS's more common, that people has a bigger chance of "being used to".

But if you compare MorphOS 2.5 with other OS's targeted to the same Amiga audience, I see many things present in MorphOS that the others don't have, that should make life a lot easier for "an outsider". The file manager for example, centralized prefs, a very solid system for mime-type handling, to name a few things that I think makes the life a litter easier for a complete "newbie".

Maybe someone should make a "hitchhikers guide to MorphOS", a guide that takes a user used to other OS's (like Windows for example, everyone has experience from Windows) and step by step shows how common things are handled in the MorphOS way?

There is the Pegasos Book PDF online, and even if it barely covers MorphOS upto 1.4.5, then it deals with MorphOS starting from the basics.
