The Apple Mac Mini still remains the most popular MorphOS platform followed by Apple Mac Powerbooks. The Mac mini G4 used single-core 32-bit PowerPC processors with 512 KB of on-chip L2 cache. The processor accessed memory through the front-side bus, which was clocked at 167 MHz. The chips in these models of Mac mini ran at either 1.25, 1.33, 1.42, or 1.5 GHz. It also had an ATI Radeon 9200 graphics processor with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM in the standard editions, which was upgraded to 64 MB VRAM in the high-end version of the final Mac mini G4 in 2005. The MorphOS development team recently announced the immediate availability of MorphOS 3.10, which represents one of the biggest updates in its history yet. This brand new version also introduces support for AmigaOne PowerPC 64bit X5000 workstations.  MorphOS 3.10 brings Flow Studio, which is an integrated development environment that offers features such as a built-in source level debugger and seamless MorphOS shell access. In addition to many bug fixes and general performance improvements, MorphOS 3.10 also provides varied user interface and usability improvements. This release includes modern themes, new fonts, and support for vector graphics, such as SVG icons, as well as time zones via Coordinated Universal Time.  You can simply download the OS and burn it to CD and is ideal for turning any aging G4/G5 Apple Macintosh into a modern day Amiga compatible machine. MorphOS comes with a large library of very usable software, much like modern Linux distributions. Not only does it run MorphOS many native programs, but also a large selection of programs and games written for AmigaOS 3.X with RTG support.
