MorphOS – an independent, AmigaOS-like computer operating system. It is compatible with AmigaOS-like machines which feature the PowerPC CPU, the Pegasos mainboard and EFIKA based machines as well. The core, based on the Quark microkernel, is proprietary, although several libraries and other parts are open source, such as Ambient desktop.

One of the system’s components is ABox – an emulation sandbox featuring a PPC native AmigaOS API clone that is binary compatible with both 68k Amiga applications and both PowerUP and WarpOS formats of Amiga PPC executables. ABox is based in part on AROS Research Operating System. ABox includes Trance JIT code translator for 68k native Amiga applications.

The default desktop of MorphOS is a MUI-based desktop environment Ambient. Ambient remotely resembles Workbench and Directory Opus Magellan trying to mix the best of both worlds.

The project started in 1999, and is under development by The MorphOS Development Team.

MorphOS project is still under active development, the latest version 3.11 was released in 2018.
