Those videos were quite useless.

Unless you like to watch Frenchmen eat.

In that case, thanks for saving me the trouble of downloading them. I hope there was no sound. The noise in the dining-room was unbelievable, just short of the pain threshold. Of course, two bottles of wine on each table may not have helped here.

Mind you, it's difficult to do the event justice with a camera: there were a lot more people present than you'd think, looking at the photos.

To make sure you actually get to see what you want to see from next weekend's show, let me know.

You are all missing the point. OS4 is so great that it even brings order to chaos in the French community. This is called placidius-conjunxtius...the 4th dimension of organic-phased time. Thanks to EagleSoft for creating the drivers!

I have seen a lot of weird stuff in Bangkok so I would not be surprised if some people actually thrill on this. Mikey_C?

The only thing I want to know is about the maturity of AmigaOS.

Not Pegasus, Not how many frenchmen can sit at a table and eat, not about linux programs being ported over, and not about how emulation is turning out.

I want to know what makes the Amiga OS better than other operating systems, and why, one day, we should choose it over any other OS.

It seems to me that creating an OS that is compatible with all other operating systems is a step backwards.

Lets hear about the Damn Amiga OS at it's foundation and lets see videos and photos of it in action.

Is it different or just more of the same?

I'm almost willing to bet money that the Amiga OS is gonna be more of the same.

Not to make small the efforts of everyone involved, but as much as we have seen and heard of the Amiga OS, it's not looking very optimistic.

It's gonna run games off of the same video cards that every other computer uses which means that it will have no advantage over any other gaming system.

It's gonna be fairly compatible with Linux, so nothing new here.

It's gonna use the same audio cards, so the sound will be the same as any other.

It's gonna run the same 3rd party devices that every other computer will use.

The only thing that is different so far is that Linux probably has better hardware support than Amiga OS. Thats for now and in the future.

What is the selling point?

Price?

The new amiga hardware and software will be more expensive than most.

Just why should I want to purchase the Amiga Hardware and Software?

That's what I want to know.

"It seems to me that creating an OS that is compatible with all other operating systems is a step backwards."

Most people would say the exact opposite: creating an OS 100% incompatible with any other OS is a step backwards (and commercial suicide)

"I want to know what makes the Amiga OS better than other operating systems, and why, one day, we should choose it over any other OS."
More compact, faster (once it's 100 % PPC native it will fly) and fun to use. Doesn't cost an arm and a leg compared to certain other proprietary systems, and a damn sight easier to install and upgrade than Linux.

"The new amiga hardware and software will be more expensive than most."
I hope you're comparing like with like, i.e. other PowerPC-based machines.

AOS4.0 is progressing nicely. It's now at a stage where 3rd-party developpers can start working with it, be it to create new apps or to port over 68K or Linux programs (and porting is important. Getting over the compatibility hurdle is a big headache in the x86 world, where we've been getting basically rehashed and tarted-up versions of the same chip for years because of it).
So if you want to develop for AOS4 and help the thing along, go ahead. If all you're interested in is playing games without spending too much money, buy a PS2 instead..

Does this help?

Finally because these are world class video cards, sound cards etc, plus AOS4 and clever creative Amigans thrown into the mix will produce world class results.

I sense your frustration but don't understand this criticism.

This is gonna be a good thing...dare I say a very good and world class system. From all accounts it has the "Look and Feel" of an Amiga and then some!
