Compared to OS X you'd be paying to downgrade the computer.

Depends. I have dual boot systems of MorphSO and OS X. OS X crawls where MorphOS flies. The web experience with MorphOS/Oddyssey is IMHO actually better than with OS X. But then again OS X offers good/standard software as Adobe CS or MSO which MorphOS lacks. But unless I need to use those programs I prefer to boot into MorphOS because it is faster and better customizable and has a very flexible UI. Others may see that different.

If it's just a faster browsing experience is it worth they money and dual boot hassle?

I can't imagine it being that much faster and I wonder how things like Adobe Flash and Java will work, let alone all the other plug-ins and browser extensions people like.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against MorphOS and it may be great, but I just wonder about the price and hardware choices.

I don't want to spend so much money on what is really a pricey hobby OS and when my old Mac fails I need to search sites like eBay for a replacement.

Like someone else mentioned it would make much more sense to lower the price and target something like the Raspberry Pi. I'm pretty sure it would sell more Pi's and MorphOS's. Hell, I'd buy one!

@ MOS6510

It's totally fine not to buy MorphOS. It's just an option for those who like it. MorphOS isn't there to challenge MS, Apple or Linux, but to have fun. The demo is free and thus it's very easy to get a first hand experience. Most about it is hobby and Amiga heritage. But it is far from being useless or nostalgia only. It actually works and I do my dailly things with it.
