I would be more than happy to pay $100 for MorphOS if it ran on the Mac Mini.

Code: [Select]
Or ... how to try to get rid of your obligations in a way that seems acceptable to people.


Probably isn't the first time in the history of the planet that someone has done some work on a project and was not able to sell it. Genesi does not have MOS1.5 and the developers don't have payment for MOS1.5. Incomplete transaction. So the seller will have to find another buyer. MorphOS users will buy it they've already stated this, but the team seems only to want to sell it to a company that has no $$$ right now. Time to expand thinking.  :-)  :-D
:-o...

ooking att www.morphos.org and www.morphos.net it seems like the developers of MorphOS aren't very happy with genesis...


They are understandibly dissapointed that the company that they thought was going to buy their new product ran out of money and could not pay. They need to get over it, realize their losses and move on and find another buyer - even if they need to set up their own server and sell the updates to end users one at a time. I'd buy upgrades! :)
 :-D

ES!! But why limit it to only the Mac Mini?


If it can run on the mini mac, I suspect that it can run on any newworld mac since they are OpenFirmware machines. ??

Personally, I'm very glad to see MorphOS free to expand without the influence (and baggage) of those two.


Yes. It has a good chance of being better than it ever has been if the developers do it right and re-establish their professional image and sell their product to someone else. Sell distribution rights to someone. Funny thought came to mind....how 'bout H&P. .... they are willing to sell products after the developer pulls the license and declares the product illegal. :)

Anyhows...need to quite posting. After my heart surgery last September... I switched to decaf coffee and it just isn't working for me.  :pissed:

Problem is as I see it, the MorphOS devs are notoriously quiet in public. So until they have all decided what they are gonna do, we'll all just be speculating as per usual.

Who is "MorphOS team" these days anyway.  We all know who the individual coders are, but are they all even speaking to each other right now after what David did with morphos.net?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I'm sure BBRV said recently that Ralf Schmidt is a shareholder in Genesi.

Interesting times are ahead..........

Plus they have, in the past, helped Ralph with his Morphos project, along the same lines.

If they put out MorphOS as an OS that will would run on most modern PPC machines (Macs, A1, Peg) I think It would sell. I know alot of Mac geeks that would buy it

If it came to the Macintosh I would buy it.
If OS4 comes to the Macintosh even better.

I would buy MorphOS for Mac Mini, if there was any compelling reason to do so.

To be frank, I'm not aware of it having any advantages, now, or even planned.

I would be glad to be corrected.  If it runs amiga software a little better...ok, for a few remaining amigans that would be good.

but I think people are talking in terms of an expanding market...so for the rest of the world, why should they bother?
