I sincerely hope that this thread does not generate any bad feelings, or ugly comments, as that is surely not my intent. So, please at least try to stay objective and factual with your comments. Here is/are the question(s);
What are the Pros and Cons of using the following OSes for daily computing needs:
Linux (whatever flavor)
Comment on any combination of the above OSes, but please at least include MorphOS and one other OS for comparison. I will be using the answers posted here to help me provide answers to AmiWest Show attendees, who ask me why I prefer MorphOS, or how other users are using MorphOS as a daily use system. I will appreciate well thought out answers to this thread, as they will be very helpful to me in preparing for the upcoming show in about 2-1/2 months.
Optionally, if you wish to also include how, or what changes you would suggest to improve MorphOS, I would be interested in reading those suggestions. Thanks in advance for your answers.
good morning, I would include Aros and Eros to this list since they are AmigaOS but the focus is on another branch ...
It seems to me that MorphOS is by far the authentic AmigaOS NG but currently ApolloOS is creating without knowing it, the AmigaOS with the largest number of users since it is focused on its ARM Vampire FPGA and this will help to load it in Raspberries and similar more powerful boards like nvidia with powerful GPU ... I wanted to comment on an important detail that I think MorphOS should look at right now.
The best asset of MorphOS is its interface and robust operating system, but the problem is in how complex it is to match with end users, like me, who do not have hardware compatibility with mass user architecture.
iCaros and Eeros are on the right track but they are alone and with few resources, they have known how to use Linux applications and the AmigaOS environment with the possibility of using Linux UAE to load x86k (Eros, icaros does not do it well) and Commodore Vision created the exemplary distribution of the AmigaOS, it was a linux but the entire user interface was AmigaOS and it loaded x86k via Linux UAE.
MorphOS has the largest software development in PPC but could go further by focusing on ARM and x86 thanks to the approach of Commodore USA or Aeres.
It would be great to be able to have an AmigaOS with no Applications problems, to be able to load updated Blender and all current linux software natively.
