[quote]Seems like a bit much for a very limited operating system that only works on PPC architecture. Can anyone explain why this would be attractive at that price?[/quote]
ok, I will do my best.
Since the bankruptcy of Commodore, I never feel truly happy nor do I ever feel truly happy. I feel like I am going through the motions of life, numb to the monochromatic monophonic realities of life. It is like the people who went to see avatar and could not bear to not live in idyllic Pandora. I remember the first time I saw an Amiga, back in 85 or so. 4,096 colors, multtasking, stereo sound. Even in 2010 now computer has matched the Amiga's ability. My PC still beeps like an apple 2 when I turn it on, I cannot format two floppy disks at the same time, and the pc's audio does not connect to my home stereo.
The promise of reigniting the amiga flame, bringing my back to 1985, is a siren song to me and others like me. I have purchased not one but two licenses even though I only have one PPC mac.. I might find another one at the goodwill or something, you never know. but just incase i do I have the license already. I will always purchase one more license than I have physical hardware for this reason.
If morphos falls short of the glory of amiga, then I am going to take up crystal meth. At least I will not be held to the whim of a bahamian corporation for the rest of my living years.
