Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : AMIcast - Episode 18 - Amibian - Amiga goes Raspberry Pi
   posted by radzik on 22-Nov-2016 20:39:56 (1208 reads)
Hello and welcome! Now is time for next great episode od AMIcast. Numer 18 with guys behind Amibian project. This means: Raspberry Pi goes Amiga. :)

My guests are Gunnar Kristjánsson and Thomas Navarro Garcia. We are talking about Amiga on Raspberry Pi. My guest explained why Raspberry Pi could be a future of Amiga instead of very expensive AmigaOS. Topics are also how to find new blood for Amiga if really Raspberry Pi can be only one computer at home, why is PowerPC not so good option for Amiga, can you can you develop only on Raspberry Pi, is it possible to use Linux software on Amibian? Raspberry Pi can handle AmigaOS 3.9 with hires graphics.
Beside of this guys have a very good sense of humor.

Raspberry Pi is well supported by vaste community of users but even model 3 hardware and performances really sucks...

Try other mini ARM platforms such as Orange Pi + 2E that priced at only 33€ sports 2 GB of RAM and can also handle H265 videos with its superior graphics.

Top Orange Pi model (sold at 47€) features SATA port too, making it de-facto a complete computer like as old glory A1200 on steroids, as almost all of us amigans could had desired...

An alliance between Amiga Operating System developers (AmigaOS, AROS, MorphOS) and Orange Pi manufacturers in China could produce a killer platform Hardware hitting the market...

-----

And in my opinion, in the end Linux, and mainly Debian based distros except support for hardware drivers, is the most sucking Operating System ever...

SuperUser requests to respond at any modifications you made as in any bloated Linux, dozillions of hidden configuration text files to edit manually from textual shell when things go wrong, and atrocious graphical interfaces.

The people that did this, did it on a RPi3. It is Amiga on a low cost ARM computer. Would it be nice to have AOS4+ on something like the following?

X-15

Titanium

Or better yet something from Acube or A-Eon that was even more powerful without all the cost & drama.

Something where we are all reading off the same page and separate from the commodity world with all the differing hardware. You know, an AMIGA.

Maybe we should also think about the concept of working with a specialized streamer company like DuneHD. They know how to streamline os components in the right way and applying them to the home theater market. Their system is already Linux-based and was able to do 1080P for a decade. Most people don't like to buy hardware and then struggle with it to keep up. So perhaps there is a split branch so to speak with the Raspberry Pi for some uses and a DuneHD for others. A one-in-all machine didn't work very well for the HTPC companies and market. Consoles ate them up.
