You mean the 23.55G? nice :-) for which versions of AROS? Is there any maximum? (on Windows there are limits)

It's in the x86_64 SMP kernel.  And the limits are 128 Gigs currently.

Recently downgraded to a Quicksilver with dual 1 GHz processors (to give away my MDDs as I also have a 1.42 GHz iBook).
STILL loving it.

that is a strange question... why not? All want modern features (if they really use it or not)

http://maker3d.tk/  on AROS already requires 2 gigs so why not go beyond?

I've been playing around with a system I'm giving to a developer, and while it won't surprise any of you, its renewed my faith in my OS of choice.
On a system that would run OSX slowly, MorphOS flies.
The interface is clean (and reminds me of what Amiga might have grown into).

Yeah, I own a legacy machine, but when I want to actually do something relevant I move to one of my MorphOS systems.

Looking forward to ver. 3.2, G5 support, tinyGL support for the R300, and Cinnamon Writer (and later even Libre Office, possibly).

Amiga fans ought to be pleased that without a major supporter, the market continues to develop.

Few other old systems have seen anything like this (although the Sinclair and Atari ST developments are cool too).


It is times like this back in the good old daze that I would tear this writing up, because it was on a Apple product, but, like an old bulldog that is getting to old to fight, I will have to agree, that morphos is becoming quite a system, not as good yet as Amiga Dos 1.0 but improving where I might actually pay for and start using it on my mini mac, since ppc linux isn't quite up to par (runs slowly) but the cost of this move is still about 10 to 1. MorphOS still costs about $150 dollars and my mini mac cost $15. It worked ok with whatever rotten core OS it had on it, but way slower than my Amiga, linux is slow but at least it is free, the demo of morphOS seemed fast from what I could see given the time limit that I could play with it, but not enough info to really test it, and AROS works great, fast and is free, but I can't get it to get on the darn internet, which morphOS on the mini mac did with no problem.

So Iggy I agree with you looking at the test results that I have, AROS needs to incorporate just a little more easy ness in its set up for the internet, which on most machines today is automatic.

Good call
I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

It's not. Amiga compatible, that is.

But that stuff is Off Topic in this thread anyway...

Actually I was replying originally to Iggy... whom I agree with Morphos currently has the most advanced user experience.   But Aros is definitely a close second.   However it's not Amiga compatible in this sense it's Amiga API compatible. ;)

In my particular case, I had a frustrating experience with MOS.
I got a bug ridden Ambient panel, and a system uncapable of working with modern LCD monitors (BTW, I asked for support here on Amiga.org).

I ended up frustrated, finally testing it on an ancient and eye-hurting CRT monitor. With an annoyingly long ethernet cable.

In my case, I repartitioned the drive again, and Installed some old version of OSX, which actually worked on both of my modern LCDs and it gave me wifi support as a bonus.

Even Aros and Amiga 68k have proper wifi support. In the end, I think I am better with them and OSX.

My PowerMac cost me just $100 bucks, and I feel lucky I didnt pay for a MOS license.

I also feel frustrated, in that I thought MOS was better, and finally it didnt live upto my expectations.

Better to ask for help on #morphos on freenode or on morphzone.org

Can you post the link here where you asked for help and I'll try to help you with the issues you have.

MorphOS is very capable of using "modern monitors", what do you think people are using every day? Ancient and eye-hurting CRT monitors? :lol: ;)

There is no magic or rocket science involved in this, it's all very basic. I actually can't imagine what you did wrong (that it worked with OSX suggests that the HW wasn't faulty, but a "human error" instead, or that you used unsupported HW (which IMHO would fall under the "human error" category as well ;))). Usually it's just a matter of connecting the monitor and it works. If the monitor characteristics isn't identified automatically by MorphOS upon boot, it's just a matter of choosing a corresponding preset manually (or creating a new monitor and entering the characteristics of the monitor yourself). Just as you always did on Amiga AFAIK.

Instead of using the official support channels (there are several to choose from)?

Why?

:crazy:

The MorphOS team (or other users) is always very helpful and fast to answer (both on the ML and on MZ, and there is also IRC), and if it's a matter of a previously undiscovered bug regarding your particular HW combination, then they would probably like to get a report of that so that they could have a chance of fixing it for a future OS update.

Isn't that the very same wifi support that MorphOS offers? At least I thought so (haven't used wifi myself).

Well, good thing it wasn't a lot of money at least... :)

Yes, that's indeed a very good feature of MorphOS; try before you buy! :) If it turns out that you can't even set up the system properly, then you shouldn't have to waste money on a license for something that won't suit you anyway... ;)

Indeed it seems that OSX suits you better, but when it comes to "Amiga NG", nothing beats MorphOS, it's as simple as that. But since you obviously didn't get as far as to *actually use it*, I guess you wouldn't know anything about that...
