Thank you for a (as said before) well written show report; it was short, but it was fast!

:-)

The (too) few pictures was interesting and well(?) selected. It was kind of cool to see that fleecy isn't a "robot" at AW these days, and it's allways nice to see a man who appreciates facial hair (thinking about Alan Redhouse here, besides myself ;-)).

However, it would have been interesting to see some more pictures of the "A1 lite", as well as some more screenshots from the current OS4, etc. But I have a feeling that people will start posting such pictures soon, both from OS4 and the A1 lite from their own "computer rooms".

Speaking of that, today its ~2 weeks until cristmas. An advice to Hyperion: In one week from now, the next weekend, whatever you have at that moment regarding your OS4 project, release it as it is to *all* the A1 owners. IMO, that is what's expected now. Some kind of public beta deliverance before christmas (including some margins for download errors or whatever). It's time to bring it out into the light, like the way MorphOS was brought into the light a year ago. Let's compare it to MorphOS 1.5!

In reply to Comment 11 (Tigger):
Tig, your blue bias is showing. Here we have a thread discussing the Bath show, and all you can think of is bringing up the Amiga Inc court case.

You must be feeling threatened by the number of AmigaOne-XEs, running OS4 BETA, present at the show, as well as the talk on the AmigaOne-XC, which is going to be one sweet little machine. It's really not our fault that the company you like so much rushed to be the first, and ended up providing an inferior product. As the old saying goes, good things come to those who wait, and I'm really looking forward to running a fast, stable OS on a compact little machine in the very near future (the XE is very nice, but in electronics smaller is usually better). If you believe the Amiga solution is better (and judging by your comments in all the forums I've seen you post, you do, else you would not feel so compelled to defend the alternative), by all means buy one when they appear in the shops. If you prefer the Pegasos, wait until it appears in the shops and buy one of those instead. But either way, please keep all this negative bullcrap to yourself.

In sweden we can buy "linux-only" and/or "Early bird" motherboards.

Take a look att "http://www.ggsdata.se" on the lefthand there is a menu starting with "news". below that you will find "computers" and a couple of sub choices. Click the "AmigaOne". Now in the righthand frame there will be a big button in the middle saying "Priser", klick on that. Now at the top you will se "AmigaOne 'Earlybird' & Linux-only..." and if you look further down you will se that there is two different G3 XE boards and two different G4 XE boards, Earlybird and Linux-only.

Actually I don't understand what you say.

Do you mean that the ones that bought AmigaOne Earlybird from GGS-data will get the prerelease and...

The ones that bought Linux only will not get the prerelease because they have allready shown no interest in OS4.

It feels like you are avoiding my question.

So I guess we are back to the point where everybody who bought *"Earlybird"* boards/systems will get a prerelease of OS4. Those few who bought a linux-only board will *not* get a prerelease.

Until GGS-data (Gunne Steen) or someone else with more knowledge can set this straight.

According to Rogue, Alan was referring to one specific application, not to general performance. No doubt the video of his talk will give the contect.

If this is a commercial application that Alan can sell, it is significant.

No doubt there will be other applications that run faster on Linux.

This was a GREAT show report with GREAT pictures. Angus really rules! Thanks Angus!

The pictures are so jammin' I looked up the camera you used to see about getting one, but they cost $3,000.00 plus!

The trolls like mantisspider in this thread don't represent MorphOS users like me. MorphOS users will give some credit where credit is due because Bath looks to have been a well-done show. Invite Genesi next time though!

I agree with Grandma that Hyperion should go ahead and release some version of OS4 for everyone who wants it before Christmas. Life is really to short to keep hemming and hawing you know. Maybe some AmigaOne owner will, God forbid, die in a car wreck over the holidays and then he never tries OS4. And people will have time to monkey with the installation over Christmas. So do it!

I don't think that Voxelspace used Petunia. Because you get around 60fps on
MorphOS on a Pegasos1 G3 600 without JIT (Trance), so you might get around
80fps on a G4/G3 800MHz. So I doubt that Petunia is used in OS4.

But then maybe someone who was there can tell us if OS4 used its JIT (doubtful
regarding that voxelspace number)?

The full reference to "4 times Linux" is about 13 minutes into the audio posted at http://www.rycochet.com/

It refers to a specific benchmark for transaction processing time which was run for them by someone (inaudible name) at IBM.

However, I don't think the version of Linux used on the AmigaOne has the new 2.6 kernel. That might perhaps reduce the difference somewhat.

Anyway, listen for yourself. Passing the audio through a compressor makes it easier to understand.

It's based on DaveP's report that an IBM transactional benchmark runs faster on AmigaOS 4 than on Linux. DaveP can't benchmark worth toffee, his memory benchmark results are an old ANN joke*, and therefore this result shouldn't be taken seriously unless we can get someone who knows what they're doing to reproduce it and provide an explanation.

DaveP doesn't work that far from me (I think, I'm at Highfield Campus). Perhaps I should call him and see if he's willing to show me what he did.

Anyone who suggests that Tigger has a "blue bias" is obviously lacking any simile of facts. Now, I'm certain that Tigger will admit to a strong "Anti-McEwen bias" however as most people do now.

If you cannot be bothered to remember this, please allow me to remind you once again; "Anti-Amiga Inc bias" does NOT automatically equate to "blue bias" (whatever that is).

> But either way, please keep all this negative bullcrap to yourself.

At this point, I honestly feel a bit sorry for McEwen on a personal level. As such, you won't see me slamming the guy, but he is now having to face the consequences of his choices and decisions. This is something that would happen to anyone who makes bad decisions.

Speaking strictly for myself, just like everything else in this community, some people (who would defend Amiga Inc against the consequences of own actions) would consider this news "negative bullcrap". Others who actually read what's going on would consider this "sad but reality".

Perhaps a thread on the Bath show isn't the place for this discussion. In that, you are probably correct, but I believe Tigger's RELEVANT thread is the fact that Barry was at Bath, openly discussing the legal situation of Amiga Inc. Tigger's point was that we ALL would rather know what "Fleecy" is saying than the fact that he was "open" about it.

Barry Moss, or any Amiga employee speaking out in his official capacity on pending federal lawsuit issues is of extreme relevance to the cases at hand, and the fact that he's talking about it openly to his flock at the Bath show establishes relevance to this thread.

"Wasn't Petunia supposed to be ready & integrated for months?"

It was. Presumably it is giving problems. IIRC it took a long time to implement the JIT emulator for MorphOS too. One would expect this kind of code to be very hard to write and debug.

I am also puzzled as to why there is a need for two emulators in the final OS 4 when Amithlon needs only the JIT emulator.

> Tig, your blue bias is showing.

While you may not like Tigger bringing this up, no way does he have a "blue bias". Neither an AmigaOne nor a Pegasos would be any use to him as, IIRC, he's mainly into running Lightwave. Keep in mind that not everyone who criticizes Amiga, Inc. management is somehow part of the "blue side" or biased toward Pegasos things. As far as I know, Tigger is not involved in any Pegasos development or use.

> Here we have a thread discussing the Bath show, and all you can think of is bringing up the Amiga Inc court case.

I believe he brought it up in the context of the impression fleecy was making in person as opposed to the impression we get from Amiga, Inc. staff in online communications.

> You must be feeling threatened by the number of AmigaOne-XEs, running OS4 BETA, present at the show, as well as the talk on the AmigaOne-XC, which is going to be one sweet little machine.

This kind of "you must feel threatened" auto-pilot response is silly enough when addressed to someone who really is a Pegasos fan. It's totally ridiculous when addressed to someone who isn't.

> It's really not our fault that the company you like so much rushed to be the first, and ended up providing an inferior product.

Amithlon doesn't have only the JIT emulator, the JIT emulator kicks in only after a precise amount of times a particular piece of 68k cod has been executed, until then it's the interpretative emulator that emulates.

In reply to Comment 43 (Peter Gordon):
Peter,

I'm sorry that you feel overly defensive about the use of the English language. Please allow me to elaborate:

Barry was reportedly "speaking openly about the legal situation" to groups of people. Unless he did so, on stage, which should be available by audio or transcript shortly, said people would have had to gather around him to discuss the subject. Gathering is also called "flocking".

I have participated in, or attended close to two dozen Amiga shows over the last 8 years. In my mind, the only people who would intentionally gather around Barry Moss are those who're interested in (and generally believe) anything he has to say, or those who're jockeying for favor in the belief that he has anything left to grant.

Hence, those close enough to "Fleecy" to hear him "speak openly about the legal situation at Amiga Inc" were technically part of a "flock". I don't know what he might have said, but hopefully not everyone who was interested in hearing what he has to say swallowed it without a healthy dose of skepticism.

In other words, no true insult was intended by me to any one individual who attended the show.

For the record, while I'm interested in hearing his interpretation of the current situation on a personal basis, I would simply not have been one of the people interested in hearing Barry's usual enthusiastically unrealistic opinion enough to be in his proximity. I'd rather have been in the bar drinking, and I don't even drink.

I agree. A linux-only box (which is NOT the same as an 'Earlybird')is not an
AmigaOne, since you should, strictly speaking, not have the possibility to add
AOS4 to it later (that's what the Earlybirds are for). And reading the GGS site
it's indeed somewhat ambiguosly phrased. I suppose it's easy to let the tongue
slip and refer to it as "Amiga-one linux-only" or similar, if only out of habit
when handling such same-looking hardware. I doubt the demand of "LinuxOnes" (or
whatever) is very high anyway.
(Thinking of it, I don't know if there IS a separate brand name for the
Linux-only Teron boards distributed through Eyetech.)

This is OT, by the way ;-)

Instead of people attacking Tigger just tell the world what Fleecy had to say, remember they are the morons what uses shit like "So the world may know" so let them do it.

Not to worry everything is on schedule and rocking.

Tig, your blue bias is showing. Here we have a thread discussing the Bath show, and all you can think of is bringing up the Amiga Inc court case.

No, while reading the Bath Show report, I read a comment (which I quoted) talking about Fleecy talking about the court situation. Now I think if I was reporting about a show, and I heard Fleecy talking about the court case and how Amiga Inc was going to come out alright, I would talk about what Fleecy said, etc. Instead we have Fleecy talked about the court case comment and no info. Was I an Atari sympathizer or something when I was getting the truth when Commodore was dying?? Was I pulling for Dell when I was trying to find out about Gateway's future plans?? NO, well then why am I a Genesi supporter because I want to know what the CTO was saying about court cases that in my fairly expert opinion are going to kill Amiga Inc???

If you prefer the Pegasos, wait until it appears in the shops and buy one of those instead. But either way, please keep all this negative bullcrap to yourself.

If the lawsuits get brought up in a conversation (or a show report) and they say fleecy was talking about them, why is it negative to ask what he said. Just for fun lets look at this realistically, I have bought much more from Amiga Inc then virtually anyone on here, everyone who has bought less then $1000 worth of products from Amiga Inc, doesnt even need to apply. Unless you bought a bunch of SDKs (which I did, one for each of my programmers) and several party packs (which I did) you havent been near the supporter of Amiga Inc I have been financially. That despite all the money McEwen & Fleecy have cost me and all the other developers with their grand AmigaOS is dead philosophy of year 2K, that announcement was so great, sales went down 50% the next day, the show sales on Sunday were dead after Bill talked at the Banquet. Then we have all the money and worried kids we've had with the threatening letters sent to posters, moderators and webmasters of Amiga websites. Our lawyer is like family, and he has big file on the Sheeplords threats, but he isnt free, and so Amiga Inc Employees threats have cost me money, much like the hacking of websites have cost me and others money. I still stand by the belief, that when the truth comes out, everyone will realize Fleecy has been the single worst thing to happen to Amiga since the commodore days (and maybe even including the commodore days).

PS If Fleecy (or other Amiga Inc employee) has sent you a threatening letter or email, I invite you to forward it to my email address above.

[quote]The trolls like mantisspider in this thread don't represent MorphOS users like me. MorphOS users will give some credit where credit is due because Bath looks to have been a well-done show. Invite Genesi next time though![/quote]

I have a hunch that it would take more than the death of the Amiga Inc company to suppress fleecy. He doesn't give up easily.
