News   News : Webb.it: showing Amiga One and Amiga OS 4 beta (68k)
   posted by Bodie on 9-May-2003 16:47:45 (2054 reads)
Taken from Amiga.org:
"Virtual Works, Soft 3 and Bitplane magazine are demoing Amiga One and Amiga OS 4 beta (68k) at the Webb.it show in Padua (Italy)



An Amiga One XE G3 800Mhz with Debian Linux PPC and an Amiga 4000 with Os 4.0 beta are present and running at the booth of Virtual Works, Soft 3 and Bitplane. Also an ipaq with Amiga Anywhere is present and the last issue of Bitplane magazine is available. Attenders seems very interested about the Amiga One and the OS 4. Tomorrow Elena Novaretti will show her own Pegasos running MorphOS. We will release more info about the show progress (it will last until sunday) tomorrow."

One thing I don't understand, is the 68k part. Are they showing elements of OS4 running under OS3.9... Or the 68k parts of OS4 .

Oh well we must be getting close now

We'll probably see lot of these..."COME SEE AN OS4 DEMO" announcements.

Don't belive anything before you see it from Amiga.Inc or Hyperion....

Funny to see how these 3 parts "Virtual Works, Soft 3 and Bitplane magazine" can show OS4 demo, when none of them works with it.......hahaha

Think twice dudes...

I don't know about that Hondo.... Soft 3 were the first (that I recall) to bring us pics of the original XE, the revised XE and the Dual CPU card. They may well have a valid Beta OS4.

[update] Actually, it's been confirmed that they are booting Workbench. I guess it's safe for me to say they are also able to launch 68k apps under OS 4 Workbench now. (As Ben Hermans so kindly pointed out later down the thread, he doesn't know why people have not been talking about it already).

The reason is stability. Right now stability isn't good enough to show this in public. We could of course, but we felt that it would give a totally wrong impression. As I said before, you can only make a first impression once, and we want that to be "Wow" not "ow!"

@Rogue

I agree, of course most dedicated Amigans will go "wow" no matter what . Hmmm, I wonder if good old VistaPro will work under OS4. Anyhow, in the meantime, I'll be happy with Linux and MacOS X when I get my A1 .

Keep up the great work guys .

Cheers

Most of the future ACube. I'm glad they didn't think twice otherwise we'd never have the Sam...
