An ex- (now re-) Amigan happened across the @lchimie show in France and wrote about it for OSNews. An interesting outsider's view of things, which should help some of us get a bit of perspective... and enjoy things a bit more.

Written by someone that hopes to be employed at Thendic.
Say no more.

IMO it is a remarkably unbiased report.
Of course it shows the Pegasos stuff - Thendic obviously made a big
effort to present their products. Amiga Inc were not there.
The AmigaOne board and AOS 4 progress report are shown, also Amithlon
and Prometheus. The pics give a good impression of the show and the
report is well written.
I wish Nicholas Blachford would find the time to dig out his old Amiga
programs and update them to run with RTG and AHI.

Considering there is next to no information in it and that the author is looking to be employed by Thendic thats true.
Anyway, anyone noticed that he went with BeOS and now MorphOS? Ive always seen some parallels there.

Nice to read article, especially interesting how attractive the Pegasos and MorphOS seems to be to BeOS developers and Ex-Amigans. :-)
There's another interesting report from the "BeGeistert" show in Germany mentioned in the OSNews-article: http://www.amiga-news.de/de/news/AN-2002-10-00180-DE.html.
It confirms that Nicholas is a Thendic-France-employee now.
One thing is wrong there in Petra's article though: the november date is not correct, the Betatester II is on sale right NOW. Confirmed by Thendic-France as well as by the german dealer KDH-Datentechnik (http://www.kdh-shop24.de) in the comments at Amiga-News.de.

It told me a lot more about that show than the previous reports.
OSNews has already had plenty of coverage of the various OSes
involved.
"Anyway, anyone noticed that he went with BeOS and now MorphOS? Ive

Two Amiga-inspired operating systems. It seems natural that a former
Amiga user and programmer would be interested in both.

Nice little article. Well written but not going into to many details.
He writes more about Morphos which is naturally because he knows more about it (he is working for thendic).

0.0% market share? I suspect it is somewhat more than that :-)

What is this about A1200s no longer being manufactured? They should at least be manufactured until the release of the AmigaOne.
Amino you lamers, how are you going to grow the market with no new Amigas? Admittedly one could buy a used Amiga but this doesn't grow the total amount of Amigas. Also used hardware is likely to be closer to its failure point.
What an unbelievable oversight. The Amiga is dead if new Amigas are not being manufactured. Simple as that.

LOL! Lay down the crack pipe dude! The Amiga died in the mid-90s in case you missed it. Nobody's gonna make any new Amigas. Man has landed on the Moon. The Berlin Wall has fallen. Do you miss other obvious things like going to the bathroom when you need to?
Let's just hope that AmigaOS gets finished ASAP and it'll be made to run on as much hardware as possible, including that old TeronCX board.
