I don't want to be bothered by selling my computer with a registerd MorphOS copy just to upgrade to a better computer or convince the MorphOS team my computer is broken. I just want to buy better hardware if available and supported by MorphOS and use my registered MorphOS copy on that.
As long as that restriction exists I'm not going to invest in MorphOS again.
It is everyone's choice. But if I do the calculation for my Efika I cmae down to as little as 3.58 EUR/month. So even if I sold the maschine today and the share of the MorpHSO license would be only 35 EUR (less than 1/3 of the original price) MorphOS would have costed me less than 2.50 EUR/month. My Win XP license from the same time may be transferred to another maschine, but is outdated already (my MorphOS license is still the most recent one). It is written off after this time. And so is MorphOS. After all effectively MorphOS may be cheaper than a Windows OEM license. This is better handeled with some business calculation instead of principles and feelings. But nobody is forced to buy a license. It is a clear deal: take it or leave it.
