    "3.13 PowerUP Beta" is what it said.

    MOS is not good enough to use it exclusively on pc.
    It is simply waste of comfort and procesing power of pc.
    Without memory protection, unix compatybility, good drivers it will end in vb.
    It is not too late to make something usable.
    MUI on top of unix may have some chance.



    Why do you keep going on a single person rant about MorphOS ceasing to be MorphOS? If you want Linux badly, there are literally thousands of distros out there that you can add Amiga-like icons to and call it a day.

    Lets hope initial MorphOS will run on my hardware. That will give me a reason to buy a license :)

    MorphOS developers can take a look at the Haiku OS source code. This OS is based on BeOS and made the transition from PPC to X64, but lost PPC support. The result is a surprising good and fast OS, and it has drivers for a lot of hardware. I believe HaikuOS is C++ based, I don't know what the MorphOS team uses.

    Problem with MOS AMD64 port it is for pc and is not good enough to resign from win/oxs/lnx.
    As long as MOS works on something that is not a pc it is nice hobby.
    But!!! pc is pc. Buying another pc for hobby is stupid idea.
    It is obvious that thing like this should work on any pc, should be as comfortable as win/oxs/lnx.
    It means memory protection, unix compatybility, good drivers and necessary tools like java and db.
    Othervise it end in vb as worse uae as AROS x86 end.

    Unless your hobby is MorphOS of course...

    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)

    To be honest, I do not care about the hardware (that much anymore!), I just like to run alternative OSs. Preferably Amiga(-like) systems. Since IBM compatibles can be quite cheap, it is a good platform to run those on ;) - And if you need a more modern OS (for whatever) you can easily switch over to GNU/Linux or Windows without the need to start another machine. Sounds very tempting to me.

    Actually, BeOS made the transition from PPC to x86 and then Haiku made the transition from x86 to x64 :-)

    Just to add to this, BeOS made the transition from AT&T Hobbit to PowerPC and then x86.

    My theory is that once MOS is out for x64 hardware, due to off the shelf availability, more people would be interested, and as a result more devs will jump on board, perhaps even by starting porting over open source stuff.

    Feel free to file this under "wishful thinking" :D

    That requires quite some special sauce ;)


    ie. if it was released today, I do not have any hardware it can run on. I'd just go and buy MorphOS x64 and figure out the hardware when I get a chance. No point with the silly "try before you buy"...I'd just buy.


    EDIT:I see what you're saying now. IOW, no point in waiting in my eyes.

    I usually have all my hardware serial numbers and mac addresses long before I order. >.< :P

    Would still require hacking RegTool to insert that MAC.

    True. Is x64 3.13 beta also?
