      (Im)Patient Amigas
      Author: Robert Du Gaue and Harv Laser   Date Verified:
      The fifth annual AmiWest Amiga computer show was held in July. Each year the Amiga faithful gather to discuss the future of their beloved computer and discuss the old days when their computers were eons ahead of the competition. However, the last new Amiga model, the 1200, shipped in 1993 and the brand has unfortunately taken on the image of a vintage, or cult platform, due mostly to the lack of new machines. While there are still Amiga dealers who sell and support the platform, significant new software titles, outside of the public domain/shareware area, are few and far between. Glossy Amiga magazines have all but vanished, except in Europe. The Amiga platform is not dead, it's just sort of hibernating.

      A Nudge In The Right Direction
      Author: John Chandler   Date Verified:
      Real Soon Now is a phrase that frequently takes on a whole new dimension in the Amiga community. Those three words conjure up the Curse of Commodore to many, striking away at every chance of the Amiga to make a triumphant return. Real Soon Now has been the cry of many projects over the years, projects that have claimed to continue the evolution of the Amiga in some shape or form: Walker, InsideOut, BoXeR, A/Box, Pre/Box, Pios One, Amiga MCC. So I guess it's hard for some to accept the fact that the Amiga community has a genuine Real Soon Now heading... well, heading real soon.

      11 Nov 2002 - With stories about the new Amiga shipping spreading across the web, including here on ExtremeTech, I thought it would be worthwhile to sit down and talk about these, and other developments with Bill McEwen, the CEO and President of Amiga, Inc. McEwen is a long-time computer industry veteran, but his past stretches beyond the PC industry. In the nineties, Bill ran sales and marketing at database vendor GenSoft, and then worked at ConnectSoft, ending up as business unit director for Internet related applications. ConnectSoft produced the popular product Email Connection, one of the first cross-vendor email clients, and Kid-Mail Connection a version designed for children.

      I haven't been in the Amiga scene for quite some years now as I have long since left for the shores of planet BeOS. However I recently had the chance to re-enter the Amiga World at an Amiga show in the South-East of France when I went to meet a potential employer - after being "discovered" on OSNews! You'd think that a computer which hasn't shipped in years would have a small dwindling community. If you thought that well, you'd be wrong. This show dwarfs the BeOS BeGeistert shows I go to in Germany. Yet, Begeistert is for all of Europe and held every 6 months, this was just one French Amiga show and they are held around Europe nearly every week.

      As Amiga Inc is about to re-enter the computer arena with new AmigaOS4 powered desktop systems as well as with 3rd party embedded products utilizing AmigaDE technology pre-installed, there are a growing number of people who wonder what an advanced classic AmigaOS currently offers.

This article also includes many WinUAE screenshots and information on acquiring and using freely available software.

      Author: Fwiffo   Date Verified:
      The name Amiga in this day and age probably has less of a hold on youthful gamers than it had back in the days of Atari. Back then, Amiga represented one of the elite platforms for gaming. That is, until people figured out the PC could do a little more than crunching numbers and replacing the typewriter. Even then, the Amiga was always known for its artistic prowess both in the audio and visual departments. Vis--vis the use and composition of soundtracks, the Amiga had a je ne sais quoi that many people, including me, found appealing.

      One thing that anyone still using an Amiga has gained over the years is a sense of patience. No matter how tough things get, no matter how much the situation ups and downs, most Amiga users will remain fairly patient in the face of frustrations that would have owners of other platforms cursing and wailing. Yes we do get moments of despair, yes sometimes it does look bleak and you can be forgiven for losing the optimism and thick-skins built up in the post-Commodore years... but then things come along and suddenly everything looks bright again.

      The Secret in Hanger AE
      Author: Bob Castro   Date Verified:
      "So the next time you see a space shuttle launch, you can tell your friends which personal computer is rated for mission-critical use in the United States space program." For more than a dozen years, Amiga computers have been hard at work at Cape Canaveral's Hanger AE supporting the launches of every American spacecraft including the space shuttle. (with pictures)

      The Wally Dug articles
      Author: Wally Dug   Date Verified:
      The Wally Dug articles were written over a period of approximately 18 months for the computer magazine JAM. Generally speaking, there were two types of articles written. Initially, the one-off Guide was written, but towards the end, a special series of articles, Hard Cases, came to the fore. The lists that follow are ordered by date written rather than publication date and will be published at fortnightly intervals.

      Turn The Page

      I spent some time recently searching for Amiga books to complement this editorial. Back in the Amiga's "golden era" finding books and magazines on the platform was a fairly easy task, though you'd be forgiven for thinking that all Amiga magazines concentrated on games to the detriment of the creative opportunities the platform offered like video, music, desktop publishing or programming.

      Vaporware '99: The 'Winners'
      Author: Vaporware Team   Date Verified:
      The last year of the last decade before 2000 has come and gone, but the Vaporware 1999 "winners" are still a dream to some, and a nightmare to others. Thanks to your enthusiastic email contributions, we've compiled the Bottom 10 list of products that, despite much hype and many promises, have not yet come to pass. (Amiga was #2)

      Vaporware 2002: Tech up in Smoke?
      Author: Vaporware Team   Date Verified:
      As 2002 ends, there is a lot of unfinished business in various corners of the tech world. We are referring, of course, to vaporware: hot, must-have products promised but never delivered. Wired News put out a call to readers for the technological wonders they most looked forward to in 2002 but never saw because developers delayed release or, in some cases, abandoned them altogether. Then we tabulated nominations and selected the top 10 -- or should we say bottom 10? -- most-waited-for-in-vain products. (Amiga is #9)

      Windows XP Shows the Direction Microsoft is Going
      Author: Michael Jennings, Futurepower   Date Verified:
      You have a right to know. You have a right to all the information you need to make an informed choice about any product you buy. The author wrote this article because of the need to give his customers fundamental information about the direction Microsoft wants to take them. Few people have the technical background to understand fully the advantages and disadvantages of software as complex as an operating system. Without fundamental information, it is difficult for non-professionals to understand the advice of professionals.

      World of Amiga
      Author: John Chandler   Date Verified:
      It's been a while since I last attended a World of Amiga show. Back in 1999, Gateway were owners of the Amiga and we were in the aftermath of the whole QNX/Linux fiasco when the Amiga Inc. of the time had ditched kernel partner QSSL in favour of Linux. The show then had been huge, spanning a couple of levels in a hotel conference centre. A lot has changed in the last three years, and the WoA of today consisted of a modest hall and the obligatory bar/presentation room.
