Submission + - AmigaOS-clone "MorphOS" available for Mac mini (morphos-team.net) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Yesterday, the MorphOS Team released MorphOS for Mac mini. It's the first time that this interesting, but obscure AmigaOS clone OS is available for a hardware which is easy to obtain and doesn't cost a fortune. The OS can be freely downloaded and just run from the Live-CD (insert into your Mac mini, reboot while keeping the 'C' key pressed). It's amazingly fast and boots basically in 5 seconds.

They write: "The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the public release of MorphOS 2.4, the first ever public version to install on Mac mini G4 machines. In addition to the extended hardware support, existing users will benefit from various bug fixes and a few new features. For an overview of the included changes, please read our release notes.

We strongly urge owners of Mac mini G4 computers to carefully read our installation and troubleshoot guides before they attempt to install MorphOS for the first time. Existing users can upgrade via the familiar procedure but are encouraged to read the guides as well. MorphOS 2.4 is available for download in our files section."
