I've got this running on my Mini now... Its pretty awesome. I'm running it on the lowest spec mini you can get and it still fly's (1.25ghz/256mb ram)

The ibook/powerbook version of MorphOS will make a lot of people really happy!
I know my old ibook had the almost same specs as this mini.

Yeah, Mom might be getting a "New to Her" computer to replace her iBook soon, if MorphOS2.5 is released and it works on her 1.42GHz G4 iBook.  Dear old Dad, who lives with the "Aliens" in Roswell, NM has a 17" G4 iMac that might also get the MOS treatment if the hardware is close enough and the MOS Dev Team gets bored and has nothing better to do.  It would really be great if MOS could be optimized for the G5 Power Macs and also if it could be rewritten to use more than one CPU and multiple cores, but everyone says that those dreams are just never going to happen.

I have my registered version of MOS2.4 running smoothly on my 1.5GHz G4 MacMini w/512mb RAM and 64mb VRAM.  It fairly flies and has no problem displaying several 1920x1080 screens beautifully on my Acer 23" widescreen LCD monitor.  I have not been this excited about any Amiga (-Like) computer since I upgraded from my A1000 to my A2000 in 1990.

For those to claim MorphOS in other mac like macbook and emac.

I dont understand german but in the pics we can see an emac running 2.4 and a macmini with MorphOS 2.4 (and without the apple logo, cool!).


The eMac is running a development-version of MorphOS (aka 3.0), you won't have any luck with the public version on anthing but the mini.

Bout the logo, well I had to make sure I don't accidently carry the wrong Mini to an Amiga-event (that would be the CoreDuo one). That, and that I was extremly bored ;)
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else
