we all know that the pre-release of OS4 is shipped with a plain 68k version of MUI 3.9. Now, I'm interested if it would be possible to install this version on a classic Amiga? Will it work? Or is there some hacky code to prevent it from being runned on a real Amiga? Please guys, let me know. This finally would be a way to have all those bug fixes from MUI 3.9 on our mc68k's. I'm not interested in OS4, but I would buy the pre-relase just for this MUI 3.9 if it runs on my A4000 properly....

|The version for Morphos is different because is more integrated in the system.|
They develop MUI by themself and changes remain inside Morphos.
This does NOT mean the the os4 version is just a bugfix and recompile, in fact it is under development. The version in Os4 is limited because they buy a special license, not as limited as the normal shareware but not fully registered.
This simply because a fully license is VERY expensive for an amount of sells like OS4 (this was explained me by a OS4 developer).
Said that you have to understand that you'll be able to buy a keyfile of MUI in future so you'll be alble to use it completely.
This agreement was taken long ago when os4 was few more than a project, when Os4 will be out MUI will use all its new features.
Because to live Mui needs an Os and Os4 will be the standard.
So in short: in future you'll have os4 with a limited version of MUI (eg3.9) and you'll be able to download and install the latest available (eg4.2) and use it, but if you'll need all the features you must register. same as in the past.
