Chris Handley consolidated all the information from these two Amiga shows into one handy post, and the future of the AmigaOS looks bright indeed! Update: More planned features have emerged.

Perhaps it is not small task, but IMO they simply have to do it. x86 will stay dominant (perhaps new word should be invented for this context) desktop processor for years to come, market is huge and there are lots of people like me, who would be willing to spend ~100$ for AmigaOS, maybe even out of nostalgia, but will not pay few thousands for new thingamajigger just to fool around a bit.

I would even claim that if they do not do it, AmigaOS has no chance finding its niche in desktop. Community is at die hards for some time now, and having to pay more for some peculiar hardware will not help there.
