An Article on Pegasos is available at www.applelinks.com. It is dated May 28, 2003. Strangely it passed unnoticed by people who wrote usually on ANN.

Wasn't this here before.. ? Maybe not... anyway its on mos-news.de

Not really a review imho, though.. more like an introduction of zero knowledge. Sort of reminds me of a certain osnews review ;-)

Well I read the article just now,

and it seems to me a summary of the info taken directly from Genesi Pegasos homepage.

It seems also to me that the author believes that the programs bundled with Pegasos are proprietary and not conversions from Amiga...

How ingenuous...

;-)))))

And making a summary by myself, it sounds that the writer of this article want to give us an ending moral.

That when the Pegasos will grow up, it will lose its Amiga Legacy to became...

... a Mac Clone...

so it will gain its expected seat in the Mac Olympus Assembly...

...with its... ...Elder Great Mac Original Brothers...

How a doomed future for a machine we hope will grow more than those unusable Macs...

Ciao,

Raffaele

Don't worry, it won't. Its illegal to use macos on non-apple box. But you could port morphos to macs and make them amiga clones ;)

Do you know it's illegal to pirate programs!
Do you know it's illegal to draw over the speed limits whit your car!

The user will do what ever he like as long as there is no one watching,
the comes when you are promoting the computer for the use as Mac Clone,
if you promoting the use of MacOnLinux this can be some thing you might regret in the future if you are Gensi or any otter company.

Well mac-emulator is not some thing that we never looked at,
fusion, Shape-sifter, Mac-II.

Guess they can't crack down on this emulators do to the property rights,
as long as the mac-Rom's are not provided, personally i think this is silly,
well Apple is in the position where it sells both hardware and software, giving braking the bundle can prove to be expensive, and the hardware department finance the the software development so it's where profitable biz, will it not become illegal to make software bundles like that, to prevent competition then again Apple is close to being alone in the PPC market any way.

Dump market:

Most i686 users don't know there exists otter options then Windows and are to dumb to install any thing or understand it.

and the same goes for Apple computers most user don't or have no interest in options like Linux for PPC this is the reality.

The problem is if users that Like Morph OS start getting mac and than find that they use Mac OS more then Morph OS due to number of native programs, for Morph OS to be ported to Mac it required that the number of programs and the quality of the programs for the platform is better then the once on Mac OS,

I think it better for AmigaOS and MorphOS to be on it's own hardware, and when it comes to drivers support and control of what type of hardware to be used making shore that MorphOS/AmigaOS hardware top quality and that OS run perfect on it.

It's not illegal; it's just against the EULA. Not the same thing.
No laws, never tested in court AFAIK.

"Reportedly, the MorphOS’ biggest advantage is that it can run thousands of AmigaOS software via its emulation “A-BOX” kit, which enables MorphOS to run classic Amiga programs"

Right... except that MorphOS IS the A-Box "emulation kit". (strong hint is the OS components = A-Box components -part of the feature list .pdf) 8)

Perhaps. :)

(It's just annoying when people are let assume more than what is reality. I originally was lead to believe that MOS is something more than the A-Box (according to the information at morphos.net etc.). Something on it's own. Most likely it will be, someday, but currently it's not.)
