While installing Ubuntu Mate to my G4 PowerMac today, I ran across one of my old OSX boot drives.
320 GB (pretty much the max for PATA drives), ATA133, fairly top of the line for the time it was current, so hey...why not reinstall it for old times sake?
OMG! Even with dual 1.42 GHz processors does that operating system suck compared to MorphOS (which obviously doesn't even use the full power of the cpus).
How did anyone put up with something so laggy and deathly slow?
Which makes me wonder this, why aren't we taking MorphOS a bit more seriously.
Hobbyist OS? Does it DO what an OS is supposed to do, and does it do it fairly well?
On a comparison basis, I'll take it over OSX on PPC hardware.
So, once we move to X64 hardware, instead of focusing on Amiga related 'hobbyist' users, you think we might take things slightly
more...(ah, hell, can't think of a better word)...seriously
Because I still feel there's a place for a light,fast, micro kernel based operating system that has the responsive feel our current OS has (but on even better, faster hardware).
