    Not sure where all the numbers from #3511 to #3521 ended up... and I see more gaps...
    Anyway, if I can trust that #3522 is actually the last number, then I'm:

    -#3523 - Finally switched to MOS 3.9 from the old 1.4.5 for my PegII

    -#3524 - Bought second licence for an used PowerMac dual G5 which arrived few days ago and seems working great, crossing my fingers (but I prefer to still keep my Peg working and fully functional, so in emergency I still have it)

    ...if not, please feel free to correct my #s

    That's weird. I just got #3550 for an 14" iBook G4 on 2nd March.

    @Barren:

    Your reg number is somewhere at the end of the PayPal link you got when registering.

    I think that many users fail to notice, or remember the number they get via email in the PayPal link, as they expect a registration number to arrive with the actual keyfile, instead of what the community has been doing, by keeping track of the number placed on registration confirmation emails, with the request for payment. I know that I have deleted those emails immediately after making the PayPal payment, and forgot to notice what my registration number is, on more than one occasion.

    Ok sorry... I was invited to add myself to this thread but I was explained only later which my registration # actually was and where to find it ! Luckily I could still find my registering mail in the .recycled dir (yeah, I trashed those mails once the transaction was completed)

    So, my Peg registration number of some months ago I can't tell, cos too much time has passed,
    while my Mac registration number of some days ago is 3561

    Hopefully MorphOS breaks the 4000 user or higher registration benchmark soon. 10,000 registrations would be very nice to see. Ma

    There's no way we can know the number of users. Not even the MorphOS team can.

    Sure.
    I own 3 licenses (Pegasos 2, Efika, PowerBook) and I am a single user.
    I guess I'm not the only one.

    I don't understand. Are you trying to say we get the definite number of current MorphOS users simply by dividing the number of licenses by 3? (Btw, I own 1 license and I am a single user, too. And I guess I'm not the only one, too.)

    I just tell that I agree with you and that this counter has no relation with the users.

    Some users have several licenses, some licenses are not used anymore... no way to know actually.

    All we can say is that the user base is (very) small. :)

    Ah okay. Sorry for misreading. I thought you meant "sure" as "sure we can".

    I don't really want to argue this topic, because I don't care how many exact users we have, but, I do believe that if the MorphOS Dev. Team wanted to know (maybe they already do this), they could keep a database of individual registered users, and list which compatible computers they have registered. The only inaccuracies that I can think of happening from this imagined database would be from MorphOS computers that stop working, or stop being used to run MorphOS, and the owners fail to ask for a replacement registration for another compatible computer, and for the few registered MorphOS computers that are sold to different users, who do not request that the name on the registration be changed, but continue to run MorphOS on such systems.

    Over all, I think the MorphOS Dev. Team could, or already does, know approximately how many MorphOS users there are, if they care to know.

    here is a statement from geit about the value of the counter:

    That statement from geit confirms that the number the community is using to track the number of MorphOS registrations, has little to do with the actual number of active MorphOS computers in use, or the number of actual MorphOS users, but it does not confirm or deny that the MorphOS Dev. Team uses any other means to keep track of how many users there are, or which users are using which hardware.

    As I said, I no longer care to know exactly how many MorphOS users there are in our community (though, out of curiosity, of course I would like to know the number). My last message was just to point out that the MorphOS Dev. Team "Could" know the number of users, "IF" they wanted to track that number, using the method I described, or some other method, and that such method would be fairly accurate. Most, or maybe ALL MorphOS Dev. Team members, probably don't care to know exactly how many MorphOS users there are, but they might know a pretty good estimated number, if any of them have discussed the topic, with, or without even trying to track such number.

    Hi!

    After years of lurking (few years ago I've even had MacMini from polish initiative "Wypozyczanka/wedrowniczek" and wrote blog post about that) I've finally decided to buy appropriate hardware and system ;)
    Hopefully it won't take another 5 years to download SDK and write some software...

    Use RegTool with your new data on the already registered machine.
