MorphOS on emulation may be possible soon

MorphOS is one of my favorite NG Amiga derivatives but currently, it requires either expensive, hard to find PowerPC hardware or old Mac PowerPC hardware.  I’ve personally wished we could run it under emulation like we can now with Classic Amiga and OS4.1FE.

Well, that may soon be possible.  The widely used QEMU emulation software (part of which is powering the PowerPC cpu portion of WinUAE and FS-UAE), may soon enable MorphOS under emulation.

I’d read many times that one of the MorphOS team had modified QEMU at one time to run MorphOS, but never shared the patches. Well, there is now an effort underway to add SAM460ex emulation to QEMU.  When this is complete, MorphOS should be able to be used under emulation as SAM460ex is one of the boards supported by that OS.
