Events   Events : Fun of Computing 2004 report & editorial
   posted by MikeB on 4-Oct-2004 21:47:35 (2667 reads)
I have written a report of last weekend's multi-platform 'Fun of Computing 2004' event which was held in Ilmenau, Germany. Jens Langner did an AmigaOS4 demonstration here and here you can read my report combined with some editorial notes. Included are photos and a small video of Jens' OS4-beta system booting.

@ CheatX

I was talking about Jens Langner, the guy who did the demonstration. Jens Schoenfeld wasn't there.

I'd never actually seen a video of OS4 booting before. It's fast, isn't it!

Thanks Mike, nice to read and the quick boot video was a delight to see.

And

.........."AmigaWorld.net has meanwhile grown into becoming the most popular English languaged Amiga community portal "

This is also very good news.

Congrats AmigaWorld.net people!

Cool report!

No seriously, I have never been to an event with such a small setup ever before(!), even all the local Amiga user group meetings I have attended in the past have always been bigger than this! Within the two main halls there wasn't more to be seen than around two dozens tiny tables with small groups of people playing on their various c64, Classic Amiga, AmigaOne, Linux, Pegasos systems and one less known StrongARM based Omega computer made by MicroDigital.


Sure you wanna see tens of thousands of Amiga freaks but you know what? Having a small show enables you to actually sit down with some key people and have a chat with them. And that is really cool.

@MikeB

Look at this picture.

Hmmm I cannot help thinking that you unplugged the mouse or the keyboard and are waiting for Jen's reaction. I mean that look on your face is giving the joke away.

You are right, especially at the BAS 2003 show it was really cool sitting down with the Frieden brothers and receive my personal demonstration and information about all the latest advancements!

Jeez, was I being that obvious? That's why he immediately plugged them back in! Had hoped he would think input.devide had gone...

Always had difficulty keeping a straight face..
