Celebrating 2000 Registrations

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.

Harry "Piru" Sintonen provided information regarding the status of the MorphOS port for Apple's PowerMac G5:

Everything is progressing nicely. Bigfoot also did some preliminary benchmarking using the same LAME (13 seconds) and MPlayer (49 seconds) benchmarks as used here. (This is with the 2.0 GHz G5.)
