Amiga & AROS Low End Mac's Sebastian Patten takes a look at MorphOS 3. "MorphOS is for Amiga users. Period. And it's for those Macintosh users who like to experiment and experience a new operating system on their PowerPC Macs. That's where I see myself, and I had a lot of fun playing around with MorphOS on my eMac. It is not a full OS X replacement, but it can come close to it, depending on your computer needs."

A quick search finds 2, 250 and 300 euro. MorphOS is around 70 IIRC. So thats between 300 and 400 euro for, what I consider, a hobby OS. Add a few euro and I have a/the new iPad.

If I can score a really cheap Mini I might give it a go.

Just looked at ebay. The cheapest offer for a Mac Mini G4 1.25 was 80 € incl. 1 year warranty.
MorphOS can be fully used and installed without a keyfile . in "Demo mode" it is fully functional, but limited to half an hour per session (then you have to reboot)., before speed is limited.
