    I think, the ISA change (when it happens finally and to PC) will ease to try MorphOS for people, who never did it before, and maybe will increase a bit the users count.

    It all depends. I wonder, for instance, if our registration keys will still remain valid for MorphOS 4.0 and above. If not - the graph will start all over again, with all the "dead" and multiplied keys null and void. Moreover, I doubt if anyone outside our tiny userbase would happily pay 100€ to register MorphOS. The price would have to be cut in a way Hyperion did with OS4 FE to appeal to someone.

    Not necessarily, it all depends on what hardware will be chosen. If something quite popular then there is a chance. I think choosing "right" hardware will be much harder than switching architecture ;)

    Personally I think the run would start, if there would be complete systems, including MorphOS, to buy for lets say 300-400€. Second I don't think that this hardware necessarily would have to be "highend" machines, as the OS is lean and quick enough for medium hardware too. In that case we would have, once more, a standardized hardware on which software developers could rely on and which would maybe attract developers on the other hand.

    Most likely not as there is no way for the MorphOS team to clearly identify the current legit license owners. Imagine person A sells his PPC Mac including MorphOS keyfile to person B but doesn't delete all instances of the keyfile after the sale. If the old keyfile remains valid for new MorphOS/x64, person A will be able to register an x64 board for that (if he does so before person B does) although he is not the legit license owner, especially if person B did not ask the MorphOS team to change the keyfile owner's name.

    That's Andreas we all know and love. Four point 1, OK?

    And what if (hypothetical) MorphOS 4.0 runs both on PPC64 and AMD64? I know, not likely to happen, but...

    Problem remains the same: person A will be able to register an x64 or PPC64 board for the keyfile (if he does so before person B does) although he is not the legit license owner.

    The thread went silent. No new reg numbers, people? C'mon, share them with us. It would be especially interesting if there's a visible bump after official price drop.

    You think so because of added X5000 support? ;-)

    OK, in light of that data the decision to lower the price makes much sense.

    Here's the PNG version and here's the PDF, see for yourselves.

    One new license for Acepeg on new/old Powerbook (paid via paypal few minutes ago).

    I suppose he'll post his reg number here soon ;)

    I could but I don't have any data from that period. The last reg number is from 22.10.2016 (given by Andreas) and the first mention about price drop is from 26.10.2016.

    EDIT: Ah, there's one from Debaser. I'll get that done soon(ish).

    I have received my morphos key this evening, i don't know what is it's number, but on the mail i have received it's writted 3423 so i suppose it's the right number.

    Thanks to BigDan and thaanks to the morphos team for the great work.

    Now it's time to spend some time on morphos on my powerbook :-)

    Hey ten licenses sold in ten days :-) amazing

    OK, people. Behold the new and updated graph! The trend line seems to become steeper again.

    I think the "key is bound to the hardware" is a hindrance for many, it kept me from registering MorphOS for many years because I had an old G4 that could run MorphOS but without sound - so I didn't really want to shell out the money for a keyfile locked to that computer. On the other hand, most people that buy MorphOS seem to buy more than one license and that would probably not have happened if the key was not bound to the hardware. Also piracy is a problem.

    I think the MOS-team generates more money because of it, but I personally would have liked it more if the key was yours and free to use on as many machines as you want. But I understand their decision...

    Bounding to hardware isn't ideal, but in the many years you are moaning about this issue has any of your hardwares broken down? I mean instead of years of grumbling you could have enjoyed an unlimited MorphOS experience on a machine for years now. And if a reg'ed machine eventually breaks the MorphOS team is known to issue a new key for a replacement hardware w/o much hassle.

    But I agree: in an ideal world the MorphOS key would be not bound to a certain hardware und cost would be lower as well, but in an ideal world there would be no cancer or war, too. Unfortunately the world is not idal. But it is on us to make the best out of it.
