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 (http://www.morphos-team.net/releasenotes-2.4.html).



We strongly urge owners of Mac mini G4 computers to carefully read our installation (http://www.morphos-team.net/installation.html) and troubleshoot (http://www.morphos-team.net/faq.html) 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.

That is some great news. For a long time people have been trying to hack MorphOS and Amiga OS 4 to run on the Mac Mini. Great to see at least one of them finally supporting this little hardware platform.

Shame they don't still make the G4 Mac Mini, however they are quite cheap to find refurbished, so a tempting and much cheaper alternative to the SAM and OS4 route.
