Default MorphOS official release!

Hi there!

Just a quick note (we can answer more thoroughly this weekend if needed -- we are just really busy today).

Pegasos info from December was accurate then. ;-) We made more boards after Aachen and then again in January, but these were in small quantities and went to Developers and a few "important" customers. We will be making some more boards next week -- still in tens, not hundreds. We won't produce any more large quantities until we receive the next shipment of Articias.

Concerning MorphOS...the OS comes with the Pegasos. This will be shipped as a bootable CD along with our DebianPPC distro and Mac-on-Linux. Today, we provide FTP access to all Pegasos owners for the latest updates. We did release a new ISO image just before CES.

All this is INCLUDED in the Pegasos purchase. In the future, we will sell MorphOS alone, but this will be a strategy primarily directed at Apple computer owners and be "hidden" under an application (probably a game), running from a CD (or a plug and play device) and NOT the host hard drive (no partitioning required). We will work something out for other PPC based platforms too. As mentioned here and on ANN we already had MorphOS running on the basic version of the A1.

Sincerely,

R&B :-)

SCRATCH that, misread the last sentence ( added a not in ):

"We will work something out for other PPC based platforms too. As mentioned here and on ANN we already had MorphOS running on the basic version of the A1."

Cool.

As soon as someone has them in stock, I'll buy one. I was going to preorder, but thought better of it.

I also want to buy a SharkG4 for my 1200. I hope that they will be OS4 compatible and relased of course.

99,99% wth a Shark you'll be able to run only OS4, not MorphOS.

Hmmm, and people complain about the fact that OS4 is only comming out on the AmigaONE. At least Hyperion is activley making a version to run on the Classic systems.

Sorry to sound so negative, having a bad day at work

Yes. It sounds reasonable that some of those were boards that came in when people swapped from non fixed to fixed (April) versions.

Well, I'm quite confident that - at last when OS4 nears completion - there'll be some third party which will get such an AI-licence, since it seems there are several users interested in OS4 for the Pegasos (me included) and Genesi on the other hand does not care for what one uses the Pegasos-boards once he has bought them.

That's why I - if OS4 would be my main aim - certainly wouldn't buy a, pardon, "LinuxOne" until OS4 will be actually ready. I'd just wait and see.

No, the version for PowerUp boards is just only
available for internal developers/betatesters but has
the same features as the Pegasos version.

Puts official hat on:

OK, Right now we still have some issues with one of the components and aren't making sufficient Pegasos boards to meet demand. However this will be sorted out one way or the other shortly and we'll have the factory Churning them out.

With a nice new shiny Pegasos you'll get MorphOS and Debian Linux with MacOnLinux.

The aim is to ship MorphOS according to the Features list here:
http://www.blachford.info/morphos/morphos-full-features-list.txt

At the minute MorphOS is not feature complete so you'll get the latest version and will continue to get updates until the feature set has been completed.

--

Note: There will be an update to the Features list in the not too distant future.

I will probably buy the system which can run both MOS and AmigaOS 4.

@bbrw: any info if MOS 1.x is going to be released for BlizzardPPC? Is it?

MorphOS already runs on BlizzPPC (since public
beta 0.2/0.3 IIRC) so I see no reason why it shouldn't
be released for it

I know, haven't been eager to try the early version though.

I'm interested in every detail since I'm a Mediator user, and AFAIK, MOS supports only G-REXX and CGX systems, maybe AGA?

BTW: sorry for spelling "bbrv" wrong. :-(

According to swedish distrubitor GGS-data: "Moderkort + CPU-kort + MorphOS v1.0 CD + MorphOS T-shirt (så långt lagret räcker)."

In english "Mobo + CPU + MOS1.0 + T-Shirt". So it seems the peg is shipping with 1.0 then. Not BT2. But don't blame me if it isn't correct.

But i must say the current install guide confuses me: "In order to get the current MorphOSboot-CD-Image you should log in the provided Betatester II FTP Server and download the latest version."
That means you could be right about BT2... :-(

When (if ever) will A1 owners be able to buy a copy?

Well, if it was already running on an A1, I don't see the problem in getting it out before OS4, which appears to be miles off.

Very true.

My opinion or best guess, which I admit is based on nothing more than circumstancial and gut feeling, is that MorphOS won't be released for A1, not because it won't run but for a business reason of some sort.

I hope I'm wrong, and am open to correction, as it would make a great impact in time between most A1's arriving and OS4's 'release'. (As opposed to 'launch' :-P )
