There's not just one person in MorphOS team, and it's not a company subject to bankruptcy either. So a collective Holger Kruse effect is rather unlikely... IMO, there would always be someone able to build some keyfile-free version, if the project was abandoned (unless a meteor hits earth or so :)).

Well if im not wrong you need to reset your key before reinstalling Windows else it fails WGA check if im not wrong, but since I havent used windows for quite some time im not sure, but I think a friend reinstalled windows and had to call MS to reser his license key.


That part is correct in a lot of cases, you will have to reactivate your installation key with Microsoft.  They allow you to move a retail key*, but not OEM or upgrades which are locked to the hardware and the original license, respectively.

* I think, now, that they only allow two or three moves within a certain time period.

Tempting but man, it's still pricey for a hobbyist OS. :/


"3xA1000, 4xA500, 1xA600, 1xA2000, 1xA2000HD, 2xA2500, 3xA3000, 1xA3000T, 1xA3500, 1xA4000, 1xA4000T, 1xCDTV, 1xA1200" those were that cheap? ;)

How long will this last? I want to buy it, the problem is that I have to wait about 1 or 2 weeks because then I get back 3500$ on my taxes, then ill get a eMac asap.

What is the price after this special offer?

I am going to break down and take the plunge! I will sell my 1200 to cover the costs. :)

I have no idea, but if they are replicating the MorphOS 2.0 introduction offer (they now have the same price as then as an anniversary celebration after all), they will return to normal prices at 15th of July. But don't take my word for it, it's just a thought. MorphOS 2.0 was released on 30th of June BTW, which could be another date to consider? But again, just pure speculations...

Then maybe you should consider a Mac Mini "silent upgrade" 1.5GHz? ;)

BTW, "Skatteverket" will be paying out the first 21 billion SEK in tax returns tomorrow, so money should get here next week! :)

Well at least *it was* 150 EUR, so if they aren't doing any changes, I guess it will return to that?
