Events   Events : "QL and Mac are 25"-Show with AmigaOS4.1-presentation
   posted by AP on 2-Oct-2009 15:18:20 (1931 reads)
I just want to inform everyone about a Computer-Event in Switzerland:

http://www.qlvsjaguar.homepage.bluewin.ch/QL_and_Mac_are_25_international_event.html

Read more...


Although the event is mainly related to the Apple Macintosh and the Sinclair QL, other 68k-computers are welcome. There will be at least one Amiga 1000 shown at the event.

The organizer of the event invited Anton Preinsack (AmigaOS4-Beta-tester and AmigaFuture-editor) to make a speech about AmigaOS4. Anton will present AmigaOS4.1 on a micro AmigaOne at the event.

No ... most people doesn't know much about the Sinclair QL, it was the first home- / personalcomputer with preemptive multitasking. It had an 68008 CPU but it was a flop ( more or less )

With a few more colours, better sound and a disk drive instead of those silly little micro drives it could have been a good machine. Sinclair should have aimed it as a spectrum replacement.

I owned a QL before I had enough money to buy an Amiga 500. Although the QL wasn´t a commercial success, it was the first "home"-computer with a 68k-CPU and preemptive multitasking (QDos). The QL has also a really cool inbuilt network (you can connect up to 64 QLs, no additional software needed) and a great Basic on ROM (SuperBasic).

And there is still a very active community with traders, commercial software and a magazine (QLtoday).

I will be on the show and present AmigaOS4.1 to the crowd. So every Amiga-User is welcomed

@wawa: Yes, the codename for the computer was "LOKI". The plan was to build a Sinclair Spectrum successor with custom-chips and with Amiga-like graphic-ability. But after Amstrad bought Sinclair they quit the project (as well as the Sinclair QL).
