Morphos So, yeah, as we already detailed almost two weeks ago, MorphOS 2.6 has been released. We've already discussed this one and its new features last time around, so I'm having a little trouble coming up with stuff to write about, but I'll do my best to find anything interesting in the detailed release notes - as inexperienced as I am with MorphOS.

"...now would be a good chance to turn it into something useful."

I ran in on my ppc and it was anything but useful.

Geez what a waste of my time.

Care to give more details? What did you expect and what did not work as stated?

I expected something useful.

Everything worked though. Just not useful.

Amiga OS's are very much unlike Windows, Linux etc.... The learning curve is quite steep if you aren't used to the way they work.

I had the same experience with AROS and Haiku. They are great to try out, but as soon as you need to sit down and get some work done, something essential is always missing.

There are certain needs that have to be met before any operating system can really be "useful" to even us IT enthusiasts. For me that would be: a Browser that can give the full internet experience, ssh client, usb support, and decent word processor.
