Submitted by ironfist
SceneCON is an annual meeting of underground computer artists who are members of the famous demo scene. With SceneCON, the organizers aim to follow the two decades old tradition of demo scene parties in Hungary. Yet, with a bit of a twist. This year's party was held from the 16th until the 17th of June, 2007. Among its highlights was an extensive demonstration of bPlan's EFIKA miniature mainboard running various Linux distributions as well as a work-in-progress version of MorphOS 2.0.

Luckily, the presentation was captured on video. The entire presentation has a total length of nearly an hour with MorphOS 2.0 being featured in the last 14 minutes of it. You may watch it by clicking one of the following links.
