Here's the thing, your nearest competitor, AmigaOS, has recently lowered their cost. I think it is either 29.00 or 39.00 USD at this time. Also, Apple did lower the cost of MacOS to 29.95, so by any means MorphOS is an expensive OS. I'm not saying change it, but your compitition is getting cheaper..
OS 4 a competitor?!?!?!?!? REALLY??? I cant run it on my Powerbook, cant run it on my G5. So to me, its not competing on any hardware I own. Do you know where you pay the difference? Go look at their hardware list and let me know how much it really costs to run OS 4.
Powerbook G4 5,6: $100
MorphOS License $ 123
Total --------------> $223
PowerMac G5, dual 2ghz $125 ( I think.. I might have paid $100)
MorphOS license $123 (?? I think thats what I paid)
Total -----------> $248
Let me know what comes close to a Laptop running OS 4, do the same with the G5 and let me know the price. Also, when is the last time OS4 had an update? I'll gladly pay what I pay for MorphOS, an OS that gets regular updates.
Weren't you also complaining earlier about the price of MorphOS being expensive..well I cringe the thought of you going ballistic after buying OS4.1FE for $30 then finding out you have to spend a few hundred just for a motherboard and all other things for it.
