Quick and dirty translation:

Permission to republish the translation granted to anyone ;)

It was July 23rd 1985 when Commodore announced the first Amiga model A1000 in a big fair at Lincoln Center in New York. This model had a price of 1300 dollars and it would be two years until the budget model A500 found the price and shape that would accelerate Amigas success.

Commodore unfortunately didn't succed in coping with the first years advances and made several fatal mistakes until it went broke in 1994.

Despite many turbulent years since with various changes of ownership, lawsuits and different companies that didn't develop it further, the Amiga OS platform is still alive and has many users.

The 20th anniversary will be celebrated in many places around the world. In Sweden it will happen on the 23th of July on Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg. - The focus this year will not surprisingly be on Amiga OS 4 and the 20th anniversary. We hope that as many of the development team of OS4 has the possibility to attend to our development sessions, says one of the arrangers, Stefan Nordlander.

IBM's product line contain products that can be used on the Amiga platform and IBMs CTO Mikael Haglund, that attended last year talking about the PowerPC processors, will be among the speakers at the conference.

- I don't know if we deliver processors to any Amiga spin-offs but I always enjoy a gang of enthuasists that burn for their cause, so I'll gladly speak at their conference, says Mikael Haglund

His distant impression about the Amiga phenomenon is that it doesn't only attract the people that were young in the 80ies. - Visitors of the fair had a wide age distribution, so there weren't just the ones that dreamt about the early nighties with their Amiga in their bedroom.

Stefan Nordlander thinks that the Amiga platform is at good health. - What's interesting is that there are several programs and games being released for OS4. There is daily addition to http://os4depot.net, says Stefan Nordlander.

The question everybody is asking themselves is wether AmigaOS 4 will be ready for the 20 years jubileum. The new operating system was announced several years ago and since then it has been in beta and none of the involved parties wants to comment on how far it is from being finished.

More information about the swedish Amiga fair AmiGBG 2005 is available at http://amigbg.com. The recently launched portal for swedish amiga groups (SAFIR) is available at http://safir.amigaos.se

Well, there might be issues regarding CS of course, I just meant that the translation itself didn't have any strigs attached. Of course linking to the source is common practice and should probably be enough to be under the category fair use.

Yup, I meant the actual translation (it too will be referenced nevertheless ). Now if only I can actually post this and the Swedish article over at www.atomicmpc.com .. not sure if I am still a member there.
