After it was clear that neither Amiga Inc., nor Eyetech and Hyperion Entertainment will present the new AmigaOne at the AMIGA + RETRO COMPUTING 2002, we started thinking about how to get an AmigaOne to the show anyway.

Source : Amiga-news.de The solution is an offer from Computer City. Owner Ron van Herk provides his own AmigaOne, and the members of the Amiga-Club im BTX & Internet will do the presentation.

The computer on display is an AmigaOneSE-G3 with 750CXe 600 MHz CPU, equipped with 128 MB SDRAM PC133 and an ATI Radeion 7000 64 MB SDR VGA graphics card with TV-Out, and of course the Cherry Cybo@rd-keyboard that's being sold by Computer City. The operating system installed is only a Suse LinuxPPC 7.3, but it'll give an impression of the hardware.

AmigaOne @ Amiga+Retro Computing 2002 : Comment 21 of 52ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 18 (Don Cox):
> I expect they are hoping to have a demonstratable beta by the time of
CeBit.
Ah! I really thought they were closer to release than that. So when do you think that the people now ordering their A1's can start to use them as Amigas? By the summer 2003 (which allows only about 3 months of betatesting)? The *next* christmas?
As someone pointed out, MorphOS was shown running on a Pegasos at Cologne one year ago (November 2001). Now, one year later, it's going to be released as a first final version. If the same goes for OS4, that will mean an end user release in spring 2004. But of course, hyperion hasn't rewritten the entire OS. Some parts of it won't even be ported to PPC, so things might go faster for them!
The above is of course pure speculation. But it *will* take some time to get everything working *correctly* once they have got it running on the new hardware. I think that the summer 2003 won't give them enough time. And I *can not* understand how they can sell computer systems to customers without telling them when they will be able to use them the way it's supposed (as Amigas). The answer "when it's ready" isn't good enough in a live situation!
