This year it’s 30 years since Amiga 1000 came out. That means that this year will be the Amiga year also here on Distrita. And to inform everyone about MorphOS entering the AmigaOS 4.x area is indeed very interesting.
First MorphOS will be launched for SAM460 and then later also for AmigaOne X500.
MorphOS vs AmigaOS 4
These two operating systems are aiming at the same goals. To gather x-Amigans. They are both very small and efficient. They multitask like the old but goodie AmigaOS for Classic Amiga and they do support more mothern graphic cards, sound cards, network cards and even USB support.
The newest version of MorphOS is 3.7, but MorphOS 3.8 will add SAM460 support. This is a PowerPC motherboard from Acube which already got AmigaOS 4 support. It will be the first Amiga hardware since Pegasos II that can run both of the AmigaOS NG operating systems at the same time.
Can they Live in Harmony together?
This is a tough question. Maybe 2015 is the year, when all Amigan’s realize that co-operation is the key for Amiga’s survival? That is Distrita’s hope which is for free competition everywhere in the computing industry.
