Amiga & AROS Big news from the Amiga world this weekend. That stubborn bunch are holding AmiWest 2011 this weekend, and it's been one heck of an eventful little, uh, event. Not only will the AmigaOne X1000 start shipping by year's end, Hyperion also announced something many in the Amiga world have been waiting for for a long time: an Amiga laptop. Update: Steven Solie, AmigaOS' team lead, also held a presentation about the past, present, and future of AmigaOS. The team is working on some pretty interesting stuff - protected address space, multicore support, USB3, new printing subsystem, and much more.

There's a bunch of alternative CPU's from Freescale and others. Any CPU upgrade will requires changes to the motherboard in any case, so it doesn't matter much that it's EOL - there's no way the X1000 will sell enough, even if tremendously successful by current Amiga standards, to take more than a tiny little nibble out of the aftermarket supply of these CPU's.
