Last friday and saturday, the JDLL (Journées Du Logiciel Libre or Free Software Days) were held on the La Doua University Campus in Lyon (France).

Each year, the French Association Triple A comes to show that a proprietary OS can live with many free softwares (MPlayer, DosBox, OWB, soon TimberWolf, GNash, etc...).

This year, more than the former ones, we attended the show with a great team (Elwood, M Belette, Voxel from AmigaShop, Corto who ported DosBox and developped PointRider, etc...)

We brought there one Sam440 with AmigaOS 4.1 latest version (thanks Elwood) and one AmigaOne G3/800.

What was the most amazing is that people were really impressed by the AmigaOS 4.1 on the Sam440. The Sam440 has caught the attention of many visitors (Voxel should have sold 3 cards to 3 people not being Amigans for the moment). The reactivity, the simplicity and the speedy boot of the system have really impressed.

The friday, these were mostly sudents that came to visit ou booth. The saturday, we met developpers.

Many contacts with developpers interested by the PowerPC architecture and the possibility to develop on AmigaOS 4.1 were made. We hope all this will lead to something real.

Here is the report unfortunately translated by Google since I lack time to translate it by myself :

Do not hesitate to ask questions aout this event. I'll be glad to answer

Very nice to hear

Although I suppose the only reason they might be suprised about the Sam440 is because of all the FUD claiming it is "slow". 733MHz is hardly slow for an Amiga! Combined with super-fast SATA harddisk speed, a fast memory (RAM) speed, and it's quite a nice system.

@ChrisH

It was a 667Mhz model They were surpised by the absence of fans, the low consumption, the responsivness of the system and the fast boot (yeah, it's really something which amazed the crowd).

@Glames

Thanks mate, see you duing the Alchimie I hope

Nice read, especially the Open Office "light" (aka OO4kids) part
