Just forget about the old ppc boards. It is too old, too underpowered, too limited.
Indeed I had some fun with MorphOS 1.4.5 on my old A1200, but that was years ago.
The old ppc boards are just not powerful enough to run the real gems of MorphOS. The cpu is weak, the RAM is usually in the 128 MB range.
Plus, MorphOS 1.4.5 feels rather antique once you've used 2.x for a while. A few weeka ago I tried to pimp my 1.4.5 Peg1 setup a bit, but instead stacked it away after a few hours.
It runs, it runs stable and reliable, but the difference to 2.x is huge. I am not sure whether it will be the best ad for MorphOS 2.x.
Thing is: Whoever is even remotely intersted in MorphOS can get a cheapest Mac G4 and try 2.x out for free. The old C= Frankenamiga users will probably not change to a MorphOS 2.x G4 Mac only becaue they were impressed by 1.4.5 on their Pup board.
Maybe as a little improvement it would be good to place a link for the 1.4.5 Pup demo on the morphos main download page though. Those who are interested may check out MorphOS on their PuP board, but I guess there are not many ppl interested.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
