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.

I think that proper utilization of FPGAs is exactly what could make an Amiga platform innovative again. Hardware acceleration made it what it was in the 80s and now one of the most interesting innovations is using FPGAs to accelerate more software on the fly. Observe the LLVM project making FPGAs a back-end. Seems to me a CPU+GPU+FPGA with that kind of flexibility could work a lot of wizardry, scaling up to whatever number of cores of whatever type for the jobs you've got.
