AmiWest 2001: first information in advance (update 2)
For the time being the AmiWest 2001 Amiga show is taking place in Sacramento (California). According first information AmigaOS for PPC, AmigaOS for x86 and AmigaOne hardware for November 2001 were announced. Detailed press material is said to follow until Wednesday.

Further details can be taken from this (completely uncut) AmiWest IRC log. As always has UGN made the resources for IRC chats during the show available. Also the obligatoric WebCam of UGN is already working, though the time shift has to be taken into account.

Here are three pictures Dirk Baeyens has taken from the WebCam last night:







Update:
Christoph Meier found the following article at Amiga.org by ´TB´ in which, next to known details like the announcement of the AmigaOS for PPC, AmigaOS for x86 and AmigaOne hardware for November 2001, the following new details can be found, too:

  • Possible Game Boy Advanced type system, but better.
  • 6Ghz Equiv design for 3rd party (The info on this is vauge at best)

This information is as accurate as we can get it until Amiga posts the news themselves.

Update 2:

Christoph Meier further posted the following message from amiga.org on ANF, which we give as complete orignal here, since amiga.org is not accessible at the time being:
