I tried MorphOS 3.1 on a Mac mini 1.5 GHz and the experience was a nightmare.

1) people talk about speed, I guess they refer to the UI responsiveness. I think OS X 10.4 is faster than MorphOS 3.1

2) UI is complicated and illogical, even OS X 10.1 is a better experience

3) one of the reasons why I decided to try MorphOS was to see wheter youtube was a better experience than Safari on OS X 10.4: it wasn't, the only way to get smooth youtube videos on this G4 thing is upgrading to OS X 10.5, which makes everything slower but stil usable

4) I could not find any menu to shut down the Mac and the butterfly was gray (so no ambient menu)

5) no wifi

6) no way to change date and time (MorphOS doesn't know about DST)

So I am thinking why all this fuss about MorphOS, for this has been the worst 1-hour computer experience ever.
