Amiga & AROS Last Saturday on the 23rd of July Amigans worldwide celebrated the 20th birthday of the Amiga platform at several events and gatherings. It was the 23rd of July 1985 when the Amiga 1000 was unveiled to the public at the Lincoln Center in New York. At the three biggest Amiga birthday events there were also extensive AmigaOS4 presentations. Here is AmigaWorld's extensive report.

> a world event with maybe ten's of participants

- AmiGBG alone had hundreds of people attending.
- AmiWest had well over one hundred participants.
- fYaNICA usually has around 200 participants.
- There have been lots of other celebration events as well, for example on the 23th of July the Amigathering 6 - Resurrection, Amiga meeting.
- Also lots of people followed the AmiWest and AmiGBG events live.

The are lots of interesting regular Amiga events worldwide, such as the popular Alchimie parties in France, small Big Bash parties in Britain, small Ottawa Amiga Show in Canada, bigger Pianeta Amiga fairs in Italy, etc.

Some recent events I personally attended:

Swiss 'AmigaOS4 on Tour' presentation in Basel 2003 (just one of lots worlwide held 'OS4 on Tour' events).

Having travelled around the world and been active within the Amiga community for many years, I feel confident to say that there are still thousands of people actively involved in the Amiga community. Every event I attended I got to know completely new people!
