Uh, yeah, Kesa. I think he was being sarcastic.

And no, you don't bang hardware anymore (on any modern computer).

Finally I still have an old A2000 for the days I'm into pain.

I am not convinced that was sarcasm. It might be though - me brain is a little distracted right now.

I agree with Kesa, I was not sarcastic at all! Since I got the Mini Mac instead of the tower case Apple G4, I will make and stamp it officially and seal the registration of MorphOS into the Mini mac G4 and consider this the official 100% only hardware ever I will get for MorphOS.

When the Mac Mini dies out completely..then I will consider getting the tower G4 Apple Mac...or better yet, the laptop version instead.


But I am not being sarcastic.

Is MoprhOS and it's hardware the same story as Amiga classic?
I just mean that once you buy MorphOS, your keyfile is bound to that device, so its probably worth just getting best you can get initially because its a hassle to upgrade. Please don't go off saying I'm criticizing the MorphOS license, which I'm not.

In my case, I'm stuck with the 1.42 with the crappy quality VGA and the 32MB VRAM. If i wanted to buy this new one from compgeeks, i'd have to sell the old G4 with license and then purchase a new license.

Or just keep them both and enjoy Minis won't take too much space... and you can have other to take with to trips without worrying about better one breaking... and you can play multiplayer games with two machines... and have other as backup system which you can sync all the time... and keeping other in living room as media center and other on desk etc etc
