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.

FYI, AmigaOS4 will become available for the classic Amigas as well.

At AmiGBG AmigaOS4-beta was being demonstrated on A1200 as well as on A4000 classic Amiga systems. AmigaOS4 can completely replace AmigaOS3.x on PPC equipped classic Amigas, for instance you can use AGA chipset dependent classic Amiga software in combination with AmigaOS4. (the AGA chipset is available on the A1200 and A4000 boards).

For example here is also an early (28th December 2004) demonstration video of AmigaOS4 running on an A1200. OS4 for the classics is currently at the same level as on A1s.

Hardware specs: Amiga 1200 with Blizzard PPC accelerator card with the CPU clocked at 166 Mhz, 128 MB RAM and BlizzardVision (Permedia 2) graphics card.
