MorphOS on Mac Mini, and now?

I had a G4 Mac Mini lying around, doing nothing, so I installed MorphOS on it. Nice, but now what can I do on it? It doesn't take ADF.
I'm really into classic Amiga, so I want to do classic stuff with it, or isn't this possible? Is this the 'new generation' Amiga or something?

You might be able to run some classic 68k apps

If by "classic stuff" you mean games, demos, and other things that rely on the Amiga custom chips, then no, you can't really run them under MorphOS. You can of course run them using E-UAE, running under MorphOS.

Hm ok, I think for the good gaming experience I'll stick to my good old Amigas. Nothing but the real thing, maybe some WHDLoad, but that's about it.
So what *can* I do with MorphOS?

Watch it boot quickly, and run a few ported apps.

That about sums it for the current generation of AmigaOS, AROS and MorphOS. Do less than Win/Lin/OSX, but with a faster boot-up. :-)
