Events   Events : Pianeta Amiga 2005 Show Report
   posted by Lecta on 5-Sep-2005 10:56:16 (13390 reads)
I post this report as a news so maybe it will be more visible...

Pianeta Amiga took place last week-end in Empoli, near Florence, Italy.

This is a brief report on what's happened at the show.


Os4 was shown on many AmigaOnes (both micros and XEs) and on a Amiga1200PPC and a Amiga4000PPC (they had the BPPC/BVISION and CPPC/CVISION combo). Although the raw speed isn't really comparable to the speed on the AmigaOne, OS4 worked very well and amazingly fast (for the hardware it was running on).

There were some micros on sale (you can contact VirtualWorks, Soft3 and Alternative Techonoly to check if they have something still in stock).

The screen dragging feature was shown on my A1XE together with all the latest beta stuff. For the first time in Amiga History was shown a new useful feature: drag & drop of Icons between differents screens (thanks to Massimo Tantignone for implementing this feature!).

During the show Andrea Vallinotto held two conferences, one aimed to the users and another one aimed to the developers. Andrea made the announcement that OS4 is already running on the 405PPC processor from IBM. This processor is used mainly for HandHeld devices.
Like already said in other places the planned release of OS4 Final is by the end of the year (yes, THIS year, hopefully ).

A reporter from "Punto-Informatico", an importan on-line Italian IT site, was here to do a report of the show.

Some dealers were present selling Amiga Stuff (and micros of course): Virtual Works, Soft3 and Alternative Technology.

Michele Magliocca was also present with his Pegasos showing MOS and the latest stuff for this system.

There were many other things to see (Zeta, OS4Games.it - a new site dedicated to games for OS4 but only in italian for now - AmigaPlatform, Bitplane with the last issue of the magazine and other I probably forgot).

Some links:

Bitplane Magazine

Anyone have information about 440PPC? Quick google search revealed nothing.

Is this the infamous "Mystery Device" ?

It's the 405, not 440.

Sorry for the confusion.

The 405 (that document is from 1998) is an 32-bit embedded processor running at around 200mhz, ideal for "system on a chip" applications.

The 440 seems to be similar, but running at around 700mhz.

Hi Andrea,

question: I understand that you have been given permission to talk about this feature in a public event such as Pianeta Amiga. May I ask you why? Does it mean that we should expect a more formal announcement from Hyperion/Amiga Inc. soon-ish and, maybe, know what the mystery device really is?

Grazie.

AmigaOS4 runs on PPC405, but wasn't this detail meant to be secret ? (At least until now...)

I don't know why I was allowed (neither I care), and please don't start any conspiracy theory.
I simply asked Ben on what could be said and couldn't, and that was the answer.

I don't know of any formal announcement or further details about the mystery device.

Hey hey mate, chill down please.

No conspiracy theories whatsoever.

[italiano] Non mi fraintendere: mi sono solo meravigliato un po', perché fino ad ora eravamo rimasti a stecchetto riguardo al "mystery device"... [/italiano]

Thanks for the explanation and keep up with the great job!

Stefano.

@AV:
Wasn't meant as an offence, I was just curious.
Nice to see, that this information became now public as this demonstrates some new perspectives for AmigaOS4
