Not too sure how many of you have heard of MorphOS, but being the retro forums I thought the operating system and my experiences with it deserved a mention. Basically MorphOS is an Amiga compatible operating system designed to be run on Power PC hardware, including various G4 models as well as the G5 - bearing in mind that no Amiga compatible operating system has the capability to run dual processors. The core of the operating system is based on the Quark microkernal (propriety) as well as a number of other open source libraries such as the Ambient desktop. This is my second MorphOS rig, the first one was based around an Apple Mac G4 running dual 500mhz processors and 1GB of ram with a Radeon 8500 (?!) graphics card. The Mac was a good starter system but over times it's sluggishness really began to wear on me, even though MorphOS is a very lean operating system the good 'ol Mac G4 was struggling, especially in 3D apps, and one PPC 500mhz processor was no more than a space heater. So along came my second attempt at a MorphOS rig.... My second attempt is based around a Mac Mini G4 that I picked up off Gumtree for $70.00. This particular model started life as a 1.25ghz unit with a Radeon 9200 GPU with 32MB of vram, I overclocked it to 1.5ghz and installed version 3.5 of MorphOS as well as the Chrysalis expansion pack, which adds a number of much needed apps to the operating system as well as making a few changes and offering slightly more functionality. I've gotta say, it took me a while to warm up to an Amiga based operating system, I guess you could say that I'd become lazy after years of running Windows and Linux desktops and the Amiga way of things took a little getting used to, but the OS is growing me and I'm really enjoying running all the old demo's as well as many games that I haven't played for about 25 (?!) years when I was really into the good 'ol Amiga 500. Many old 64k applications run just fine within the OS itself with no additional emulation needed, however many games or demos that hammered the Amiga's specialized chipset directly still rely on E-UAE in order to run - However, based around the hardware used such apps run beautifully. I'm still having trouble getting the launcher to recognize my 1.2 and 1.3 ROM's though... I've also been enjoying a little old school Quake III gaming as well! So without any delay I present you my Mac Mini MorphOS rig: PPC processor, 1.25ghz overclocked to 1.5ghz, Radeon 9200 32MB, 1GB ram, 40GB HDD, Benq FP222W monitor @ 1680 x 1050.
