Genesi is coming to the Hilton Garden Inn in Washington, DC on October 18th to present it's PowerPC based computer platform - the Pegasos! Genesi is coming to the Hilton Garden Inn in Washington, DC on October 18th to present it's PowerPC based computer platform - the Pegasos!

The Pegasos will be the highlight of this event. This is the latest model from Genesi - and supports both G3 and G4 PowerPC processors. The Pegasos is a highly affordable computer system based on the CHRP standard and supports at least seven flavors of Linux including Debian, Mandrake, Gentoo, Yellow Dog and others.

To compliment the Pegasos and provide a complete solution, Genesi has developed MorphOS - a preemptive multitasking operating system. MorphOS combines a modest footprint with scalability, high performance, and amazing ease of use for developers and end users. Its beautifully designed interface and modular object-oriented design offers a modern solution out of the box.

Some operating systems work through emulation including Amiga and Macintosh, and other operating systems such as QNX, OpenBeOS and NewOS are under development already.

You are invited to see our presentations and have actual hands-on experience with the Pegasos system. We'll have many machines available showing you the latest operating systems, applications, networking, Internet solutions and games.

So come to the Hilton Garden Inn convienently located at the McPherson Square Metro Stop (Orange and Blue lines). The event is scheduled from 10am to 4pm on Saturday the 18th of October. We'll see you there!

Any chance the "latest model from Genesi" will be the PegII?

To be sensor I think the Genesi stands have a lot more to show the Hyperion stands, I think this come thing weird really, canít under stand way Hyperion never presented some of the games while there where on tour around Europa in the first place.

One more thing I donít get is way Hyperion demoed the 68k version of the modules on the AmigaOne, when they where suppose to demo the latest version.

I think there are lots of things Hypersion can learn from the Genesi about show biz.

We are looking forward to this event!

We will have more than a few Genesi folks there to answer your questions and to discuss the future of the Pegasos.

Best regards,
Raquel and Bill

>>The Pegasos is a highly affordable computer system

I wouldn't go that far... Affordable is what all the other mainstream computers are. Anyway I realize a computer costs more when it's sold and manufactured in small number of units, but calling it affordable still sounded funny considering the outdated machine specs.

Hopefully someday the world will see a pegasos system up to latest industry standard in terms of os functionality aswell as in hardware.

Affordable is not the same as cheap. Affordable is something between AmigaOne and mainstream pc-mobo.. something a normal worker can buy without filing for bankcrupsy.

In a lot of ways MorphOS is better than Windows, Linux, and Mac right now. For example, to begin at the beginning, the boot time is quicker. To continue, the responsiveness is superior. Windows and Linux I know this personally. For Mac, I know this because we had expert Mac users who came over to the Genesi stand at Amigafest Dayton and said so (we timed the boot and demoed MPlayer, and ran other stuff).

So when you talk about "OS functionality" we're doing okay in most ways. MPlayer and Kaya were big steps. There are other things like the TCP/IP stack that are very close now. Printer support is being improved. We are on the brink of an alternative platform that stands to be a giant slayer. I am not spinning, it is that good. I don't know your specifics gz, but if you go see a Pegasos demo you will see what I mean.

Now there are things like apps where Pegasos and MorphOS are not competitive right now. We can't have the zillion apps available for Windows or Linux or Mac now. But this is not the crucial test, for apps it is just important that we can do the stuff that people need or want to do. For example we don't need a selection of thousands of games like Windows, we just need a few good games. Same thing for word processors. You can fault MorphOS for not having as many apps as Windows all day long. But these are apps, not OS functionality.

I would rather 1 app that does what I want than 100 that do not.

I hope some people go more than the last show in new york.
It was pathetic , they were four cats more the prompter.
morphos/pegasos doesn't have anything to make when os4 is blindfolded.
Is truth that it has been sold more badges amigaone than pegasos without the os4 being was even?

You have left two tele-news, bbrv.

> Will anything thats Classic Amiga relevant be there?

Yes, stay tuned for more information.

> Anything Linux-ish?

Yes! Pegasoses will be shown running Linux of course!

> Any Amiga vendors even?

There will not be large tables filled with retro gear like classic Amiga games or EZ-VGA devices or whatever. There is no plan for people to be able to walk in with a credit card and walk out with a Pegasos either, however they will be referred to the appropriate reseller website. The point of this is to amaze people with the capabilities of the Pegasos and communicate about the future.
