   posted by Rogue on 4-Aug-2010 19:05:59 (20701 reads)
As a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Amiga computer, Hyperion Entertainment has made a video using the Gource CVS visualization software showing a time-compressed version of 25 years of Amiga development, from the early days of AmigaOS 1.0 to the present. Personal commentary added by one of the current core full-time AmigaOS developers, Hans-Joerg Frieden (a.k.a. "Rogue")

The 1024x576 video was even very watchable in dvplayer using sam 533mhz.

Thanks for this video.

Direct link to Flash version on YouTube. And the same for the eLAP video. So people with HTML5 video support can watch them if they want, without diging the page source, like i did.

Well, you *could* also download the files directly from Hyperion Entertainment's web server, you know :)

I think Hyperion could have attracted a lot more developers and sped things up significantly if those legal issues were not always draining resources away (e.g. money and time).

Kudos to all those that stuck it out and worked tirelessly to advance the one and only AmigaOS code base. AmigaOS continues to change and evolve forward as is demonstrated in that video.

Why is there no mention of?

- phase5 and their Amiga and PPC dedication?
- Elbox which brought PCI extensions to Amiga?
- USB addons for Amiga?
- MorphOS entering the marked?
- AROS keeping Amiga life on other platforms?

Why does Hyperion ignore all these parts which is the fact that They live and have survived until now. Even though I am a MorphOS user, I've told people many positive things about AmigaOS4.

One of the sides should start to be honest and forget ignorance! Both Hyperion and MorphOS Team makes this unstable ;P I am certain many agrees with me.

@AmiDelf

It's just a video of the revision history of AmigaOS...
Just like the previous showed video how AROS has came to life some weeks ago...

It's just a cool way of showing the normal boring version history tree has progress during time nothing more, nothing less...


Chill man ;)

You, my good sir, are disrespectful beyond comprehension. Look at what you just wrote, and then think a minute or two about what the developers associated with AmigaOS have done for the community at large the last five years. You are talking about foreign operating systems that have nothing to do with the AmigaOS code base. Pay some respect to Hyperion and all the boys and girls in West Chester, Pennsylvania who brought AmigaOS into the limelight 25 years ago.

I do suggest you apologize to everyone involved for the most stupid, unthoughtful comment this week - and if that's beyond what your pride allows, then please take your business elsewhere.

@AmiDelf2

Since when where MorphOS in the AmigaOS repositories???

If laire decides to make a similar gource video of MorphOS beginning from the first steps of PowerUp I wouldn't expect "AmigaOS" be part of it...

It's pretty simple really. The video is NOT meant to be "the history of Amiga and related products." This is a video that shows the progression of the Amiga OS source-code repository over the last 25 years. The events mentioned in the video had a direct impact on the source code. All of the products that you mentioned were made by third parties, and they didn't contribute anything to the source code repository.

Please don't turn this into something that it's not.

Hans

I've got only so much space to put in there. I could have mentioned the transition from blue to grey background as well if I wanted to mention every little piece, but I've restricted myself to AmigaOS releases, Amiga machine releases, and news items directly concerned with the companies working on AmigaOS. Otherwise I could have extended it to the War on Terror as well.

Why is there ALWAYS someone that tries to make every little news items into a Red vs. Blue war? I am sorry, but it is mostly people like you that make things unstable.

Exactly what i just did.

Great video, I've been wondering how Gource would look with a complex project - looks beautiful to see it unfurling (especially bits like Python).

It works well to demonstrate (I assume from the CVS check-in dates) how development on the OS has continued over the last decade, and although visual effects != effort, will hopefully help to demonstrate that you have not been idle even during the (thankfully ended) lawsuit.

Cheers, and here's to the next 25 years development!

@AmiDelf2

Perhaps they thought that whatever they say it would have been twisted around and used against them?

And if they wanted to emphasize on AmigaOS development, there is no room for clones?
