Morphos Bright days ahead for the Amiga world. AROS is doing well, AmigaOS4 is getting one heck of a machine in the AmigaOne X1000, and MorphOS continues its development at a brisk pace. Version 2.6 of MorphOS, currently in development, will add support for (G4, I'm assuming) PowerMacs, which, alongside support for the Mac Mini and eMac, gives MorphOS a solid base of used hardware to run on.

But then Apple moved from x86 to ARM.


Apple didn't move from x86 to ARM. Just because they have new products that use ARM doesn't mean they are moving from x86. For that to be true, either their upcoming desktops would have to be arm (which of course they aren't) or they would have had to been using x86 in iPhones/iPods prior to ARM (which, of course, they haven't).

And if Apple did it, everybody should do it. After all, Apple is always right and those who do not follow Apple are behind the curve.


Not at all. Moving from PPC to x86 was a very good move for Apple, and they did so for very good reasons: Performance. The key question is, is the goal of MorphOS to truly revive Amiga as a viable platform, or is it merely to cater to Amiga enthusiasts?

I hope it is the former, because the latter is market that can really only shrink.
