Introduction to MorphOS
If you are a Free Pascal programmer that landed here but never heard of MorphOS before, then you might have a few questions. This page tries to answer some of those questions in a somewhat organized matter.
What is MorphOS ?
MorphOS is an Amiga-like Operating system, capable of running on classic Amiga (with expansion) and/or dedicated PowerPC hardware. It is a modernized upgraded version of the classic Amiga 3.x operating system.
What is the relation between MorphOS and Amiga ?
MorphOS is one of the successors of the Amiga Operating System and as such has API compatibility.
What license does MorphOS use ?
MorphOS is a proprietary closed source Operating System which requires a license that can be purchased from the MorphOS website.
What hardware does MorphOS support ?
There is a fair amount of hardware available that is capable of running MorphOS, although restricted (red: find/use a more positive word) to a PowerPC processor. MorphOS can also be run inside an emulator such as winUAE or inside virtualization software such as Qemu (red: was that proven to work ? is it available for normal end-users ?).
