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.

That presentation was hard to watch.

Between the speaker laughing at his own (sad) jokes every 30 seconds, him reading off of printed out notes, the auto-white-balancing camera that kept him in shadow for the entire presentation, and the video screen that showed nothing but a list of names it was really hard to pull the message out of the noise.

The Amiga was/is a multimedia powerhouse and a guy in charge of developing the OS can't use a slide presentation running on the computer? What was the point of having the projector on if it wasn't going to be used for anything. It was all very distracting.
