Could it be possible to add a Morphos-section so that I can just tick it off and don't have to read about it? I understand it's hard to implement new features, but maybe within a month? It's beginning to be quite difficult to spot the real Amiga news in between all the Morphos and Pegasos chit chat.

Own Morphos-section : Comment 39 of 60ANN.lu
Posted by Kelly Samel on 25-Feb-2003 17:50 GMT
I understand what some are saying: that only OS4 is
the real AmigaOS. But let's face it, MorphOS is
compatible with Amiga software and operates in a
very similar way. I think it's at least "Amiga"
related in that respect and should be of interest to
all Amiga users out there. It's just one more way
to run your Amiga software and develop new "Amiga"
applications for the future. We have many
solutions in this market because of a lack of
activity for so many years, different groups had
to decide what direction their Amiga experiences
would take. OS4 is based on some of AmigaOS3.x code
but I think a high part of it was rewritten almost from
scratch too, this is necessary to support PPC and other
modern technology. (like ExecSG for instance...)

If your definition of Amiga means that it has to stay exactly
the same as OS3.x and never have parts rewritten or
changed, this is unrealistic in my opinion. That being
said, I think OS4 will be very interesting too and all
Amiga/MorphOS users are sure to keep an eye on it too...

I would like to see OS4 on Pegasos hardware and MorphOS
on the A1 but until that happens people can experience
what MorphOS has to offer. If people are not given the
choice between OS4 and MorphOS on their hardware of
choice then they can continue to use whichever is bundled.
Which OS serves each individual the best can not be known yet.
A comparision can not be made until Amiga Inc. and Hyperion
have something released and even then there will be differences
of opinion on the subject...

Genesi seems to have a lot of resources for development
in both hardware and software so don't expect MorphOS to go
away when OS4 is released either. It's better if we can share
our experiences and help develop standardised APIs etc. that
will make it easier for software to run on both systems reliably
and effectively. Most developers and Amiga resellers have
realized this and offer both solutions equal support, I agree
with this approach.
