PowerMac G4 AGP Graphics (PowerMac3,1): 8.5
PowerMac G4 Gigabit Ethernet (PowerMac3,3): 9.0.4
PowerMac G4 Cube (PowerMac5,1): 9.0.4
PowerMac G4 Digital Audio (PowerMac3,4): 9.1
PowerMac G4 QuickSilver (PowerMac3,5): 9.2
PowerMac G4 QuickSilver 2002 (PowerMac3,5): 9.2.2
PowerMac G4 MDD (PowerMac3,6): 9.2.2
PowerBook G4 Titanium (PowerBook3,5): 9.2.2
As you can see, MorphOS does even support computers designed to natively boot Mac OS 8.5
Yes but installing native boot Mac OS 9 is a pain, perhaps impossible, unless factory discs can be located. Retail Mac OS 9 can not boot on these computers.
Also Mac OS 9.2.2 is the final Mac OS 9. It is not being updated with the exception of after market softwares and modifications. Oh the other hand, MorphOS is actively updated.
So it picks up where Mac OS 9.2.2 left off in two ways.
