I'm not sure how many of you know the Amiga and its history, but i've been an avid fan of it as well as mac for years. If you have a mac Mini G4 and want to try an awesome reimplementation of the AmigaOS in Native PPC its now available for all models of the PPC versions of the Mini. The demo is free and can be installed with OS X as a dual boot.

MorphOS is the AmigaOS evolved, it will run native MorphOS applications as well as classic Amiga applications and games as long as it didnt hit the custom chips the classic amiga used. In other words if it was a later amiga game or application it will work most of the time.

Check out the MorphOS user forums at http://www.morphzone.org and if you want to download the iso and try it out its available at http://www.morphos-team.net/downloads.html

Also if your wanting to keep OS X and dual boot you can follow this guide: http://dreamolers.binaryriot.org/dualboot.pdf

Please check it out and spread the word to other mini G4 users!

My Dad and I were talking Amiga last night!
He ended up ordering a CF SSD drive for his 1200 and a pcmica cf adapter so he can download abandonware and run it on the 1200

I actually have an A3000T in peices in my dads attic, I want to restore it (has not been used for about 6-7 years) Im too worried about the battery being corroded on the motherboard that i daren't look at it
! I want to restore it.. with an 060!
