    Linux is as much a Unix rip-off as MorphOS is an AmigaOS rip-off :-)

    I don't know, MorphOS is quite an upgrade.
    UNIX to Linux? Not as much.
    There are some great UNIX descended BSD derivatives out there right now (including OSX) that give Linux more than a run for its money.

    In any case, yes what I was proposing was to leave the body of MorphOS in the 31 bit space of Abox while adding code outside in either 32 or 64 bit memory.
    That doesn't preclude a latter revision to PPC MorphOS, but it would allow some neat hacks to be created.

    And if PPC MorphOS is to be relegated to a hobbyist OS, what is wrong with hacking?
    Isn't that where most of our programmers started, hacking Amiga systems?
