Ottawa Amiga Show 2002
September 27, 2002
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
On Saturday November 9, 2002, the Amiga.info user group will be hosting the second Ottawa Amiga Show. Once again, the show will be held at the Routier Centre, 172 Guigues Street, in the market of downtown Ottawa, Ontario.
With all of the interest in alternative operating systems, this is an excellent opportunity for the public to see the latest offerings from Amiga, Inc. This includes the AmigaOne, the first new hardware for the platform since 1993, and the binary portable Amiga Digital Environment (DE), currently available for Microsoft Windows, x86 Linux systems, ARM and MIPS processors.
The following is a list of the show exhibitors:
ACK Software Controls from Niagara Falls will be demonstrating the AmigaOne, the first new Amiga hardware since 1993, and a modified Amiga 4000T, the last classic Amiga model produced.
Ottawa's own Technomages will be showcasing their latest Amiga DE software, such as Eric Schwartz Puzzles and Memory. Their software will be running on a Windows x86 system and a portable MIPS based Windows CE system.
ZEE4 of Toronto will be on-hand demonstrating their brand new Amiga DE offerings.
There will also be three Amiga retailers at the show. Cinereal of Ottawa, Downtown Amiga from Montreal, and Livewire Systems of Ottawa will be selling a wide range of hardware and software for Amiga computers.
Finally, Amiga.info will be presenting information about the user group and answering questions about the Amiga platform.
Despite the G20 meeting that was held at the same time as the Ottawa Amiga Show of 2001, the show drew Amiga users from as far away as Pennsylvania, New York, Toronto and Montreal.
The current position of the Canadian dollar makes coming to Canada an inexpensive proposition for our American neighbors. At the time of this writing, $100.00 USD = $155.00 CAD.
Ottawa is about a two hour drive west of Montreal, five hours north-east of Toronto, and nine hours from Boston. You can also get to Ottawa by flying into the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.
There is a mailing list that you can subscribe to if you would like to be kept up to date on the show details. To subscribe, send an email to email@example.com.
