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.

@strobe, who says "I've used Linux/PPC, it's not worth anything. It's buggier and runs less software than Linux/x86."
What are you talking about here? Precompiled software/games, or commercial apps?
I don't play games and I have no need for commercial apps, as I trust the opensource applications more.
As long as it's opensource, there's no problems (unless the software has a crackhead for coder)
I'm currently using linux on a number of platforms(sparc, ultrasparc, pa-risc, mips and vax) and I haven't felt that they run 'less software' than any other platform. Opensource offers almost too much options these days.
