Amiga Inc, in conjunction with Hyperion Entertainment and Computer Connection of California will be demonstrating the current state of AmigaOS4.0 at the up-and-coming Amiga show in Sacramento, California.

Louie Dituri of Computer Connection, an Amiga dealer since 1988, will demonstrate AmigaOS4.0 running natively on a Cyberstorm PPC A4000. A lot of progress has been made in moving 68k modules to PPC-native since the end of the European AmigaOS on Tour roadshow as well as the default look evolving still further.

Computer Connection have also donated an AmigaOne as a raffle prize and, additionally, will be demonstrating AmigaOnes running Linux.

A representative of Hyperion Entertainment, the project manager for AmigaOS4.0, will be on hand to answer questions on the product. In addition, John Harris, a renowned AmigaDE developer (and the creator of the classic Frogger and Jawbreaker games), will be present at the Computer Connection stand to show off a variety of AmigaDE applications.

We urge all Amigans attending the show to flock to the Computer Connection stand and see the future of the Amiga Platform. No rumours, no spin, no hype, just the real deal!
