Today (Saturday) I went to the Bebelux Amiga / Pegasos Show in Rotterdam and... ....and the most important things where these:

- On the Hyperion stand where 3 AmigaOne's, one G3 600, one G4 800 (if I remember correctly,
and another one running Linux.
The first two where running OS4, apart from the lack of proper gfx system
(it was the patched one seen in Italy) they ran pretty snoothly.
Petunia is integrated altough the JIT is not used as default so when a 68k program is not
'told' to use the JIT it would use the interpreted (sp?).
I saw some movies (mpeg) running at the 68k moovid from os3.9 (this was using JIT)
and they ran pretty well. Also the same demos shown in Italy where running -this time- smooth.
Os4 crashed a few times due to some exeptions caused by hardware banging apps
(grim reaper didn't catch them) BUT the AmigaOne rebooted FAST, it took a few seconds
to go through the Uboot an about 5 secs to boot into OS4 :)

-There where a bunch of pegasos's running MorphOS and Linux,
they looked nice, and where showing all the superbundle games.
I didn't play around with them so I can't tell you more except they looked professional and MorphOS seemed to run fine.

-Burnit 3 beta was shown on MorphOS with CDRW and DVD write support , now thats cool :)

-I talked to the friedens for a while and those guys seemed very nice,
and where happy to answer many questions.
Late in the day Ben Hermans arived,
I wanted to talk to him aswel but I didnt catch him.

-Last but not least I have to tell you that the number of people visiting was LOW, VERY LOW,
I counted at the peak about 50 or 60 people.... Maybe Sunday will be better.

Thats it for now, I going to have a bite....

Thank you! But I need more info, MORE INFO!! ;-)

I see that BurnIT 3 (CD/DVD writing software) for MorphOS were shown, nice! How about the Papyrus Office and DigiBooster Pro? I understand that the Northland Demo was not shown? What was the Tyragroup Multimedia System?

:-)

Nice to Se that have improved the preference this time, well that probably head to fix it after all the critics they encountered last time, I can Imagen different developers looking at different issues to figure out the problem source,

Well I hoped the integrated debugger worked... I Hope that OS4.0 normally finds the problem when it's done, this is what I expect from it.

I must have slipped seeing this, you know if its DigiBooster old 68k or a new mos version ?

Imagine running this, http://renoise.com/ on your amiga :)

i downloaded the demo version and tried it on a pc in a studio, old pro tracker modules with applying a few plugins sounded like a totally new remix, really
cool :)

An enhanced Digibooster is very much needed...
Atleast I'm going to buy that PC program, a real next-gen protracker :)

@ catohagen

I don't know about 68k or native PPC code, but as for a new version for MorphOS:

"The Benelux Pegasos Show / Benelux Amiga Show will have yet another premiere; The popular professional music tracker program will be demonstrated on the Pegasos running on MorphOS for the first time! The program will be demonstrated at the Genesi booth by the project leader, Dennis Lohr.

More information on Digibooster Pro, as well as some screenshots, can be found here: http://www.apc-tcp.de/support/0004e.html "

The Tyra machine was a pegasos in a nice looking box wich was running Morphos.
It's purpose is to be a machine that plays movies, music etc in your livingroom. But not realy a settop box....
But the software wasn't ready and not on display.
I cant remember exactly what it was suppose to do more.

Also there was a videomicrowav wich looked cool
wel... a microwave with a lcd display instead of a 'see-trough-window' and a<BR> pegasos inside.
ALso the Ambient backdrop picture was a picture taken from a real microwave<BR> with a baked cake inside :)

I saw a coldfire prototype board (not working, the guy showing it said he <BR>
already baked three coldfire chips on it) it's supposed to run a 200-somewhat M<BR>that relates in real life use to about 6 times 060 speed for 68K apps, <BR>and for coldfire native apps to about 10 times 060 speed, he told me.<BR>
Also the board had usb, irda, ac97,firewire and sdram on it.<BR>

In the Amiga 'Museum' was a Draco and a walker on display with their guts exposed,<BR>The walker (Ron v Herk told me) has OS3.2 on it and it is in working order,<BR>it was used on some other amiga show a while ago to give a scala presentation.

I didn't know there was a functional OS3.2. Did it have a new kickstart ROM or was it just software based? Does anyone have any more information on what 3.2 featured?

Knowing DigiBooster is done on assembly, I'd imagine it's still 68k, just fixed to work on MorphOS.
