  • MorphOS team members are part of Bplan, MorphOS will run on Bplan hardware. There will be an announcement early december.
  • Morphos need to be working stable on CyberstormPPC and Blizzard PPC to be sell as a commercial product then MorphOS will be hardware independent to run on new bplan hardware. Perhaps it will also run on Macintosh. No X86 port expected.
  • Recompiling a warpup application is the only way to run it on MorphOS.

  • A third beta version of MorphOS should be out in next weeks with PPC version of MUI, YAM, CED, MagicMenu, AmiTCP, ADE. All PPC users should try it and give feedbacks to enhance MorphOS.
