MorphOS : : Celebrating 2000 Registrations
Posted By: ASiegel. on 2013/9/6 11:19:17
MorphOS on PowerBook G4

In order to celebrate the 2000th MorphOS registration, we'd like to thank our users for their support since the introduction of the MorphOS 2.0 in 2008. Since MorphOS 2.4, we've been expanding our hardware base to a variety of Apple PowerPC computers, including their excellent portables. The adoption rate of the Mac mini quickly surpassed the bPlan machines, and the Mini still remains the most popular MorphOS platform.

    Congratulations!

    Would it be possible to show a breakdown of how many are registered to the same person/email/paypal?

    It's obviously not a fool proof method but it would help to give an idea of how many are unique registrations opposed to people with multiple machines.

    It was modelled in 3D and then raytraced.

    Many people may have sold their previous 2.x hardware (e.g. Peg2 in favor of a Mac mini or Powemac G4), so I think this number would be rather bogus.

    Very big accomplishment. It doesnt matter if several licenses are to the same person. A license sold is a license sold!

    Congratulations to all of the developers who have contributed to the MorphOS project, from it's earliest beginnings, to today's wonderful version. The determination of Amiga users and developers to continue the legacy of the greatest computer system ever invented continues to be strong, even though our numbers have dwindled to a shadow of what they once were. MorphOS has given us an excellent choice to continue our love of the once great Amiga computers of the past (they are still great, but have been surpassed over time) and it has given us the opportunity to use a system that is Amiga compatible, to do many of the computing tasks that we enjoy and need to get done in our daily lives.

    I look forward to many more improvements of this excellent operating system in the years ahead, plus the interesting new choices that these talented developers make for the future.
    MorphOS - The best Next Gen Amiga choice.

    Which 3D program? The chart looks fantastic, great work. Congratulations on over 2000 licenses sold.

    In this case, Maxon Cinema 4D. But one could have used pretty much any major 3D software to get an almost identical result.

    Is the old Amiga Cinema 4D sufficient for this task?

    For modelling, yes. But the rendering engine is clearly outdated by today's standards. While it is not very obvious, the chart was rendered with Global Illumination (indirect illumination of non-reflective and reflective surfaces).

    While the user interface is clearly not everyone's cup of tea, in terms of rendering quality Blender easily beats any of the old Amiga 3D graphics packages (Cinema 4D, Lightwave, Imagine, etc.).
