Re: Trevor's Amiga Blog. April - Now available.
Just popping in
Just popping in


Why is Trevor writing this ?

"It's been a while since I posted to my blog, but that doesn't mean I haven't been very busy over the past six weeks"

As far as I can count it's almost TWELVE weeks since his last blog

So regarding Radiance and all the other stuff going on how can he ask us to keep watching this space??

It's seems almost unbearable after so many weeks

It's hard to be interested in this platform sometimes

the waiting for even a small screenshot from firefox/OS4.2/Office suite/Radiance/etc. can take ages

How hard can it be to give us a little breadcrumb now and again IF development is actually going on ??

Thanks for the blog anyway - which I apparently must try not to see as a a-eon/hyperion news channel but as a hobby blog

@magnetic

I don't think Rogue is the one working on it right now. (latest rumour says that timberwolf drove him mad)

I think it is Steven Solie now (poor fellow)

@edit

Didn't see Rogue posted in this thread

I think you're absolutely right - that a better PR strategy would do Hyperion (and the community) good.

Should Linux kernel power future AOS solution ?
Just popping in
Just popping in


I know this is not the proper time for this discussion, because of the news from Amiwest, etc. but I have to get this off my chest.

This weekend I had a visit from an old former amigan friend. In 1998 he skipped the amiga scene in frustration, and was very sad and angry over the situation, and the lack of development..like many of us. He just never looked back, and is still very upset over the fall of the Amiga, and don't even follow anything amiga anymore.

But we stayed friends for the years to come, and so this weekend we had some good food and wine, and I gently told him Amiwest was also this weekend. I told him about the situation with new NG hardware in many years - and showed him the new amiwest videos of Trevor talking about three new motherboards. I also told him about Libre Office, Firefox, HD audio, Radeon support, etc. Java on its way, QT, AmiCygnix, etc.

He was rather condescending about the progress, and reacted mostly like he was very hurt once, when i kept talkin positively about what was going on. (and the news from amiwest) - he just couldn't see anything positive about where the amiga scene was today. It seemed like he was almost unsalvable, and I asked what should be done to keep his interest and restore a bit of faith in him. (he is a long time amiga user, and a capable java programmer, so he knows his it stuff)

He answered that long ago the AmigaOS should have been given a linux kernel, and thereby get all the bells and whistles of memory handling, filesystems, SMP, etc.

He said that in his eyes that was the only way to go. To run AOS in a sandbox, or run somekind of Amithlon solution. He thought it was a bad idea that a small company reinvented all the stuff that very skilled people already had put in the linux kernel for free use. He was angry that Amitlon never was used as NG solution, and that amiga used up precious time to code stuff that was already made by experts, and was free for the taking.

And my thoughts are - yes perhaps we should have a Linux kernel booting a workbench environment - like Amithlon. That would dramatically increase the speed of AOS getting all the cool important stuff, and support x86, memory protection, multicore cpus, etc.

So Instead of making 14 different distros running on the X1000 - maybe take the quickest of them boot AOS directly into WB, and use this as a future platform for AOS

I wonder what the devs oppinion are on this matter ? Is this an easy way to get all the important stuff and all the nice apps, games, etc. ?? it seems like A-eon already have some cool linux guys working for them, so maybe the idea is not that impossible to implement.

I could easily live with AOS running on a linux kernel...as long as it looks and acts mostly like AOS

So as far as my personal oppinion goes, I'm optimistic about the idea, because I think the development time is much too long for AOS - and probably costs too much for such a small userbase.

But again I don't know the whole picture legally wise, business wise, investment wise, etc.

So please don't think I say this HAS to be done...I'm merely asking if my friend is right ?

(note he is also unaware of the current/future plans and timeframes of Hyperion)

And yes I made sure he saw Trevors suitcase full of boing stuff...

Thanks for the update Rogue. Hope you catch some good speed for the various projects you and the others work on. Rest assured that when the various projects are finished, the noise from true amigans will FAR outweight the negative responses. Trust me on this one! - so keep up the spirit. There are MANY people silently cheering for you and the other devs. Try and keep us updated and you yourself and the other devs stops a lot of mumbling and rumourmongering.

Now go and kill some bad guys in ARMA

@Mikey C

Even though I never had the honor of attending one of the shows you organised, I wish to thank you for doing it.

I think the shows are VERY important for the Amiga scene. It makes it all much more fun, and brings people together who would never have met if not for the shows.

So sit back and rest assured you helped not only the amiga scene in england, but also the general scene. We're many people in europe watching EVERYTHING from these shows.

Way to go man

Now maybe with all that lovely sparetime, you could make Amigans.net a little more userfriendly. Like for instance putting a @mickey_c in, when clicking reply you know...the small things like the missing home button in the end of every thread. Perhaps even a new design?

Just some small suggestions now that you've "retired"

So it looks like A-Eon and Varisys has been busy behind the scenes, and worked hard on TWO new motherboards.

A Micro ATX and a Full ATX

Here are pictures of both boards on A-Eon Facebook site

This is really good news for AmigaOS who seems to have the upper hand regarding new HW choices atm.
