Unless NewTek has changed their minds about Amiga support,
why demo their products at an Amiga Expo?
How about demoing an AmigaPPC version of LW?

In reply to Comment 1 (Jaeson Koszarsky):
Maybe it's because there will be alot of Amiga Lightwave users they can poach?
The Amiga isn't a very attractive platform for comercial developers of that size anymore ( lack of hardware, lack of good reputation etc ).

Showing Newtek products is kosher with us because they've never abandoned their Amiga user base. Even up to last year I saw them STILL repairing DigiView modules! Newtek is good people in my book and a lot of Amiga/Toaster people are going to want to see the next generation of the Video Toaster no matter what platform it's on.
Honestly, this show is bringing the spirit of the Amiga towards multiple platforms. Some things will be running under Windows (even AmigaDE for that matter!) and there will also be a LOT of new Amiga stuff at this show.

If it was that, there would soon be millions of $ to spend also on the OS R&D. ;-)
(or then AmigaInc would just get bought by someone)
IMO: "a LOT" could be something like: more DE games, more OS games, MorphOS commercial release, new Z2 card (USB?), new pressreleases, ... also note that "a LOT" is somewhat relative term... and also "Amiga stuff" seems to be a relative term sometimes. ;-)

Well AMOS has more functionality then AmigaDE at this point, give AmigaDE a few years and maybe it will stack up more favorably with AMOS <g>

If AMOS is so great why isn't anyone ever showing it or teaching it at shows? C'mon...

personally i would like to thank kermit for sticking with the amiga community all these years and with imagefx. he's going to a lot of trouble to organise the show and the exhibition lineup is the best for any amiga show in the last three years.
now we only need the pegasos and morph there for the amiga spirit to be complete at the show ;)

In reply to Comment 7 (AmigaDE Forever):
Well, I guess there was a bit of humor intended there. :-) But who says nobody ever displayed AMOS at shows? It was a prominent product at its time. That time just was ten years ago. That, probably, was a major point in the sarcasm presented as well...
I digress:
Comparing AmigaDE and AMOS themselves is of course silly, but the general quality of current AmigaDE games (and the abilities of the current intent APIs) and those made for AMOS is certainly fertile ground for some discussion - although I'm sure none was intended.
AMOS was just used as a general term for something of "less than commercial" quality referring to the fact that software for AMOS often was due to its nature made by hobbyists. That in itself says nothing bad about AMOS (although it did have its rough spots), since that is what it was intended to do - it was a home creators' kit.
On the other hand, that is not what the AmigaDE is supposed to be, so the current performance certainly leaves something to be desired.
