because hardware is nothing without software...
To this one I agree... But are we sure that the only software we'd
need is a new OS release? Of course I'll be more than happy when it'll
happen, in the meantime I keep thinking that in order to use only
MorphOS at home I'd need some software not directly and strictly
related to the OS... However, since the second beta of Sputnik, I had
the chance to minimize the time spent on other OSes when at home.
YMMV, but if I were you I'd reconsider wheter all I need is an OS
release or some particular program, like Word, or... or even a game
like Half Life 2. In that case there's not much that MOS 2.0 can do
for you. On the other hand, if you are enjoying the experience right
now, like I do, you'll probably enjoy it more...
I don't see 2.0 as the kind of Holy Grail that part of the community
seems to be waiting for... somebody might be heading for a delusion -
but maybe it's just me being wrong.
Therefore I don't think anyone really leaves because 2.0 isn't out
yet. Probably the system doesn't fit their needs anymore (or never
did, and they just pretended it did), probably they are realizing that
with a community of 1000 people it's not easy to see Open Office
ported (either on 1.4 or on 2.0...).
Me? I just like and enjoy what I have now...
