A few notes about our presentation of OS4 and Alan's...
I must say that Laszlo Torok sent me his last version of MooVid a few hours before I left to go to Montlaur where OS4 was demoed (thanks Laszlo). As we spent 2 hours talking about OS4 (the presentation we prepared), we ran out of time. We couldn't show MooVid running in OS4. Sorry French Amigans about that...|
Anyway, with Stephane Guillard we tried MooVid just before the show. We played some movies that can be found in the "Video" directory of the OS3.9 CD.
We played them in a Workbench window (with nosound because we hadn't speakers) and it was damn fast... So it prooves that:
- OS4 68k emulation works well (the Moovid we used was the 68k one)
- the 68k runs fast even on an old 603 (on the A4000 we used) !!! I know there wasn't sound but it will rocks on the A1
There's one thing left, I must say. Alan Redhouse did a presentation about the present and future of the A1. What impressed me is when he said that Eyetech sold "many more" units than "the others"...
I had confirmation of that when I asked to an A1 reseller who told me there is a potential market for several thousands of AmigaOnes. Remember the ISP-like market ? :-)
Bye everyone, I hope to see you soon to demo a full PPC OS4 running in the A1 !!! :-)
