And this is also why it's almost impossible to entice new users to it no matter how loudly you broadcast it. It isn't a modern OS. It doesn't do what people in 2019 need. It never will be a modern OS. You never will get people outside Amiga fans to use it.
Deal with it and move on.
I "Almost" believe you when you say that we will never get people outside Amiga fans to use MorphOS, but not entirely. I've seen a few people who never used an Amiga, who are now part of this community, and are actively using MorphOS systems. Even met one or two of them. So, I'll continue to promote MorphOS, knowing that someday we will have a more modern version of MorphOS running on x64 hardware, which is fully 64bit capable, probably has memory protection, and also has SMP capabilities to use all cores of modern CPU's. It won't be backward compatible with MorphOS3.x, or any version of AmigaOS, but it will probably get a version of UAE ported to it, for the people who still want to run any of the ancient software on their new NG MorphOS systems.
Naysayers can continue to waste their time on these forums, but I choose to use my time here more productively. I'm still looking for people who have some time to create image, or video content that I can use, or people who have any other new ideas on how to best promote MorphOS.
Specifically, I would like to obtain videos of people doing actual work, or creating art, or music with their MorphOS systems. A video clip of them actually doing the work creating the art, or music, or work of other productive types, or even programming work. Any video clips of people using their MorphOS systems for things other than just web browsing and typing negative comments to forums.[ Edited by amigadave 22.09.2019 - 09:56 ]
