Ok - my main worry was to be vulnerable when surfing the web.
So it seems, MorphOS is maybe even more secure, than some linux distros - not because it is very safe and secured, but just because it´s rare and uncommon.
Beware that this is not entirely true. Odyssey is based upon WebKit, and WebKit is certainly a pretty big target for attack. So if Odyssey doesn't use an up-to-date version of WebKit, then there is some risk.
I don't know how up-to-date Odyssey's WebKit is on MorphOS, but on OS4 it is extremely out of date. Which, for example, leads to webpages being able to show a fake URL in the address bar, meaning you might think you are safely on your banking website, but in reality you are on a fake phishing website. An article about the exploit is here:
And you can check if Odyssey is vulnerable using this:
