It currently runs only on PowerPC processors by Freescale and IBM while still supporting the original AmigaOS MC680x0 applications via proprietary task-based emulation, and most of the newer, PPC/AmigaOS applications via API wrappers.

Besides the Pegasos version of MorphOS, there is also a "PowerUP" version for Amigas equipped with PPC accelerator cards produced by Phase5. This version is free, although it does slow down after each two hour session if it has not been registered. Registration is free. PowerUP MorphOS was most recently updated on 23 February 2006, however it does not exceed the feature set or advancement of the Pegasos release.[2][3] Phase5 Digital Products was a computer hardware manufacturer that made boards consisting of an Amiga computer: the A1200, A3000 or A4000, accompanied by a PowerPC/m68k accelerator board: the BlizzardPPC or CyberStormPPC. The company went out of business in 2000, after an announcement on July 22nd, 1999 with QNX Software... February 23 is the 54th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A version of MorphOS for the EFIKA, a very small new mainboard based on the ultra-low wattage MPC5200B PPC processor from Freescale, has been shown at exhibitions and user-gatherings in Germany.[4] The next release of MorphOS will support the EFIKA. The EFIKA is really small which this picture shows, including the AGP riser slot. ...

History

Early MorphOS version on promotional "video microwave"

The project started in 1999, and it is based on the Quark microkernel. The earliest versions of MorphOS ran only via PPC accelerator cards on the classic 68K Amiga computers, and required portions of Amiga OS to fully function. A collaborative effort between the companies bPlan (of which the lead MorphOS developer is a partner) and Thendic-France in 2002 resulted in the first regular, non-prototype production of bPlan-engineered Pegasos computers that run MorphOS. A busy promotional year followed in 2003, with appearances at conventions and exhibitions in several places around the world, including CES in Las Vegas. Thendic-France had financial problems and folded, however the collaboration continued under the new banner of "Genesi". Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Genesi is computer company focused on building Power Architecture computers. ...


After some bitter disagreements within the MorphOS development team in 2003 and 2004, the Ambient desktop system was released under GPL and is now actively developed by the MorphOS community. Two alternative MorphOS desktop systems are Nemesis and Scalos.[5] MorphOS is currently under development, with the latest Pegasos user release being 1.4.5 (30 April 2005). There is a user community that supports the OS as well as a number of developers. A screenshot of the desktop with panels in the lower right corner. ...

Two past key deficiencies of MorphOS have been the absences of a bundled native TCP/IP stack and a web-browser with modern capabilities (most notably, support for Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS). However the user community is remedying this through the use of bounties[6] that have so far resulted in MOSNet, a TCP/IP stack, and "Sputnik," a port-in-progress of KHTML browser, based on S60 WebCore. A first, developmental version of Sputnik, rough in many aspects, was released to the general public on November 11, 2006, and a more advanced version on March 10, 2007.

MorphOS is a light fully featured operating system that is non-Unix based and Amiga compatible.
In addition to the PegasosPPC, MorphOS has been ported to the MobileGT and a series of Freescale development boards that use the Genesi Firmware.
MorphOS has been a recognized as a Ready For IBM Technology and is listed in the IBM Global Solutions Directory.
Power Developer - Home (0 words)
MorphOS shell is a Unix-like shell provided with all the features you expect from such a component: AmigaDOS commands (most of which are Unix-like), local and global variables, command substitution, command redirection, named and unnamed pipes, history, programmable menus, multiple shells in a window, ANSI compatibility, colour selection, and so on.
MorphOS has a native implementation of this language (except for a library that is still being coded, and currently must be extracted from AmigaOS).
One of the most important positive effects of the compatibility of MorphOS with Amiga programs is the fact that MorphOS users can still run almost all the commercial software they purchased for their Amiga, with great advantage in power and speed.
