Internet News   Internet News : Ottawa Amiga Show: Reviewed in Computer Magazine
   posted by terminator on 27-Jan-2005 0:28:39 (2072 reads)
The online edition of MONITOR magazine now has the January issue, with the excellent review written by Thomas Leroux of the Ottawa Amiga Show, held in November 2004.


http://www.monitor.ca/monitor/issues/vol12iss6/feature6.html

MONITOR is a local publication that covers personal computing on a monthly basis. It's available free on the street or by subscription. The online edition is usually a month behind.

There's even pictures, so if you were there, you might be able to see yourself.



Be sure to check out the rest of the online edition, or even search for articles Tom has written for past Amiga events.

Thanks for writing your report Thomas.

Always nice to see some positive Amiga coverage by multi-platform press.

Hi Thomas,

Delightful article and informative too, thanks!

I guess I've seen UAE a "million" times but never really thought about or knew what it meant (Unix Amiga Emulator) and the same for GCC 3.4 (Gnu C Compiler)

I also don't recall seeing the dimensions of the micro AmigaOne board (ITX-form-factor) before being a bit less than 6.75 in./17 cm.

For general information:
Those using Windows and FireFox browsers here (don't know about the Amiga browsers...yet) can get the "micro" ASCII code by pressing Alt+0181 on the keypad.

I'm glad so many people are happy with the article - I did have two errors pointed out to me that I *should* have caught myself when I was proof reading it before I sent it off - I refer to the SX-1 as a SX-32 and misidentified Amithlon as AmigaXL.

Monitor magazine has been supportive of the Ottawa Amiga Show from the beginning - they have always made space in the magazine for a review and cover Amiga news (that I usually edit) as well. It may be even a bit of a surprise, considering the size of the Amiga user base in Ottawa, which I would guest to be around 10ish, maybe higher, but not by a whole lot.

@turkamigaman

Richard didn't write E-UAE as such. UAE started its life on *nix and was ported to other platforms including Windows. The Windows version of UAE has been developed the furthest while the *nix version has been stagnating, so Richard updated UAE, added a few bits here and there and now maintains it under the name of E-UAE (to distinguish it from the original UAE). He is bringing it up to the level of WinUAE bit by bit.

And he's doing a sterling job by the way

@ turkamigaman

The different naming is confusing and therefore has been heavily discussed at various Amiga forums. For the original UAE distribution developed for Unix systems, the following I believe to be correct:

UAE stands for UNIX Amiga Emulator, although the "U" originally stood for "Unusable" as in 1996 on a 90Mhz Pentium the emulation was still about one third as fast as a 7 MHz A1000 from 1985.

As UAE has now been ported to many different platforms, the "U" is now often said to stand for "Ubiquitous".

@MikeB and Trezzer

Thanks

Now we will call "Ubiquitous Amiga Emulator"
