Hi there everyone,

Very nice indeed, the image quality is fantastic and is that me, or on the one image (maybe more) is the white drawer background slightly transparent? Sorry if it's an obvious question, but i'm losing my sight so it's hard to tell - but what I CAN tell is that OS is looking stunning - and VERY vibrant.

Chris

The classic emulation needs some very serious work done to it.

Very early stages, I'd say.

Everything else was pleasantly surprising.

Heres the juicy bits from this report:

The L2-Cache was implemented and therefor the still interpreted graphics system performed 40-45% faster compared to what was shown at the Italien Pianeta show. A native version of Quake was demonstrated as well. The game ran very fast using solely software rendering with a 800x600 resolution screen on an 800 Mhz G4 AmigaOne.

AmigaOS4 was running stable on the AmigaOne. I did encounter some small bugs when using some classic software, but nothing caused the AmigaOne alpha version to suddenly crash the whole system.

Due to poor attendance everyone had the oppertunity to test AmigaOS4 for themselves. The Frieden brothers told me that they expect the PPC native version of the graphics system to be completed within 2 or 3 weeks and that this will result in a huge speed increase with regard to the graphics system, this includes things such as GUI performance

Actually when someone asked me to show him "The Grim Reaper", I did not manage to cause a crash, hehehe :)

Really nice pictures MikeB!

Are you using a digital camera or are these negative scans?

Can't wait to see this on my own A1!

@ Steff

These pictures were made with a professional digital photo camera.

I hope there will soon be an AmigaOS4 launch event taking place in Germany or Britain. This time my wife took our digital video camera to Milan. I plan to create a good video instead next time. I love to try different things and that looks like a fun thing to do as well.

That figures! Very nice results anyway!

Haven't invested in a digital camera of my own yet as I find them to be pricey and not very good resolution to boot.

Did finally buy a Minolta Dimage scan elite 5400 positive/negative scanner though. Mainly to convert my comprehensive library of ancient dia positive and black&white negatives. Of course it works fine with todays color negatives as well!

Really nice results but it's limited in the formats it accepts.

Interesting approach to a report Mike.

Light on words but accompanied by great photos.

I know I'm very interested is SEEING AOS4 so this worked very well for me.

Thanks for the effort, well done!
