Events   Events : Pianeta Amiga 2005 Show Report
   posted by Lecta on 5-Sep-2005 11:56:16 (15369 reads)
I post this report as a news so maybe it will be more visible...

Pianeta Amiga took place last week-end in Empoli, near Florence, Italy.

This is a brief report on what's happened at the show.


Os4 was shown on many AmigaOnes (both micros and XEs) and on a Amiga1200PPC and a Amiga4000PPC (they had the BPPC/BVISION and CPPC/CVISION combo). Although the raw speed isn't really comparable to the speed on the AmigaOne, OS4 worked very well and amazingly fast (for the hardware it was running on).

There were some micros on sale (you can contact VirtualWorks, Soft3 and Alternative Techonoly to check if they have something still in stock).

The screen dragging feature was shown on my A1XE together with all the latest beta stuff. For the first time in Amiga History was shown a new useful feature: drag & drop of Icons between differents screens (thanks to Massimo Tantignone for implementing this feature!).

During the show Andrea Vallinotto held two conferences, one aimed to the users and another one aimed to the developers. Andrea made the announcement that OS4 is already running on the 405PPC processor from IBM. This processor is used mainly for HandHeld devices.
Like already said in other places the planned release of OS4 Final is by the end of the year (yes, THIS year, hopefully ).

A reporter from "Punto-Informatico", an importan on-line Italian IT site, was here to do a report of the show.

Some dealers were present selling Amiga Stuff (and micros of course): Virtual Works, Soft3 and Alternative Technology.

Michele Magliocca was also present with his Pegasos showing MOS and the latest stuff for this system.

There were many other things to see (Zeta, OS4Games.it - a new site dedicated to games for OS4 but only in italian for now - AmigaPlatform, Bitplane with the last issue of the magazine and other I probably forgot).

Some links:

@all

Do not start to say it is "Amiga Anywhere" or that it is this PDA (which already has an OS BTW)....
Let's wait for the information to come.

Hehe, I've already made a mockup with the 'OS4 e-Lap' for the news item at safir. It was the only device I could find that had the 405 CPU, and it's the referance model from IBM. It's from 2003 so I hope the specs will be updated for 2006

But still this is exciting news, and thanks alot for bringing this to us!

If OS4 would be running on that I would buy it in a blink of eye (perfect portable companion to my A1-XE)

Is this why I have not had the heart to replace me aging Newton PDA with something else? I am waiting for the Amiga version?

Up to my knowledge the mystery device (at least the first hardware which was named like that) is/was AHT's Ariane, a settopbox, which has a SoC in it, with (surprise) a PPC405 core. According to the AROS team, AHT were unable to get a license with proper terms from Amiga Inc. so they moved to use AROS instead.

I've no doubt however, that Hyperion still have their Arianes, and as soon as Hyperion could get independent from AInc and their braindead licensing terms, they'll use this possibility. (Which would be great, of course.)

Great, during the 80/90s I always wondered when such an obviously useful feature would finally make it into AmigaOS.

But do you actually knows what the mistery device actually is? There were some contacts from AHT, and that was no secret, so it could be logical, but if you know what the mystery device is, is another thing...

I think it's about time that the "powers that be" tell us what the hell we're expected to be able to run OS4 on when it is released. Apart from a few left over boards sitting on a handful of dealers shelves, we've got nothing. No news on a pending desktop mobo, to definate handheld device (which doesn't interest me) and no new PPC expansion expansionboard for the classic machines that can be reliably confirmed.

I find it amazing that the competition that has a currnetly "dead" OS is still producing motherboards while we have a professional company producing an OS with no hardware announced to run it on.

Either I just don't get it or someone, somewhere has developed a marketing system that makes Commodore look like they knew what they were doing.
