MorphOS for Sam460
« on: December 01, 2012, 02:15:46 PM »
MorphOS now supports Sam460, too: http://amiga.ikirsector.it/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=17250

A chance for 460 owners to try out MorphOS and those who like MorphOS, but for some reason dislike used hardware or everythig with a biten apple on it or a combination of both or #?: there's your chance to run MorphOS on new and not discontinued hardware.

Personally I think Acube's offers are rather expensive, but they have earned s proven track recorde now over the recent years. They deliver and support. That's something rather rare these days. And maybe in future they will bring on a bit more competetive offers.

Edit: It's confirmed now by MorphOS team members.

A practice that we've always has with Amigas is to run things on them that weren't originally envisioned - Bridgeboards, Mac emulators, NetBSD, Linux, etc. That tradition continues now that we have our second NG Amiga capable of running all of our modern flavors (I believe Pegasos was the first). Nice work, everyone!

That's gotta sting a few people to see the Holy Mark on the Heathen Mobos.
:)

Might get around to registering MOS now that it (soon) supports my preferred hardware.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me happy. Maybe I'll look into buying a 460 board. That way, I get the best of both worlds and may be I'll finally pick a side. ;P

Those heathen mobos wouldn't be around if Hyperion didn't go to them for an OS4 platform, that's got to add some salt to that sting for some. I look forward to seeing some performance reports.

Very good news, never seen this coming!

Hopefully this will be the trend and future hardware from Acube will also be supported. :)

I'm actually surprised the "Blue Heretics" haven't chimed in on this yet.... :razz: :lol:

Well this isn't the standard OS4.x thread so they are a bit confused :razz:

They will. I predict their argument will be the same - why spend all that money when you can get something already available at a much lower cost?

But i agree it is great they are porting it over. May have to think about saving up for a Sam460. I have always wanted to try AOS4.x and this means i can do both on the same machine.

I also wonder what will happen to their licencing plan. Now that users can choose between red and blue they may have to alter their strategy a little.
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

+1

Exactly what I was thinking.

Very cool, I still think I want to stick with the G5, but this is awesome!

When I am working again and ready to check out OS 4.x, I will certainly be buying this board, having various flavors of Amiga OS available for once computer is just too cool!

Absolutely! This certainly adds to my enthusiasm for grabbing a SAM460ex next year. One of the reasons I was so interested in getting a pegasos2 was the ability to run both AmigaOS and MorphOS on the same machine -- and I enjoy the ability to do so. I also hope this might lead to support for RadeonHD cards on MorphOS eventually.

In fact with AmigaOS 4.1, MorphOS, and AROS all eventually able to run natively on the SAM460ex, it might not be the fastest next-generation Amiga system, but it certainly will be the most compatible. Rock on, Acube! :)

Edit: For those of you on Facebook there is a video of the MorphOS prototype booting up.
