Golem: Apple brings Darwin to x86 CPUs, too
»Foundation of MacOS X now also as a x86 Version
With version 1.3.1 Apple now puts a new version of Darwin online, the MacOS X core. With this for the first time an official ISO image for x86 systems exists. The Darwin core bases on FreeBSD and Mach 3.0 technologies and offers "protected memory" and "pre-emptive multitasking". Darwin runs on PowerPC based Macintosh machines as well as on x86 compatibles. «
Complete article (German) under the title link.

Apparently Apple has recognized that almost everybody has an x86 at home and offer their OS for them.

Heise: IBM brings PowerPC for Internet Appliances
»The days of 'one-size-fits-all' for PC micro processor are gone", claimed Scottie Ginn, Vize President of "Pervasive Technology" at IBM Microelectronics. Reason for this wholehearted announcement: the presentation of a system-on-a-chip solution for Internet appliances such as Web-Pads or Surf-Terminals. The so called PowerPC Internet Appliance Platform (IAP) builds on a PowerPC CPU and implements memory, LCD interfaces, as well as an Touch-Screen interface together in that chip. According to IBM the chip is considered to cost about 60USD as for OEM quantities. «

iFusion is Shipping
As a pre-orderer after 18 month of waiting I received the iFusion today, at last. The longish longed for PPC version of the MAC emulator for my AMIGA.

A for now Cybergfx 3 and 4 are supported. There is no "direct" support for Picasso96, yet. A "new world class" MAC OS version is needed. The OS included with the MACs was said not to work. In contrast to that the version available from the vendors was said to work.

Amiga Inc.

Executive Update by Bill McEwen
Bill McEwen - April 12, 2001

Greetings to one and all:

What a wonderful time it was for us in St. Louis. I must thank our hosts Bob and Diana Scharp and all of the members of the Gateway Amiga Club. They once again outperformed and kept things rolling.

I want to make very clear what the announcements were and what it means for Amiga and the rest of the Amiga Family.
  1. Amiga has made NO change in strategy with AmigaDE. Things are going great, as expected, and we have some impressive new customers; Sharp being the first.
  2. Amiga OS 4.0 and beyond was announced. This is a staged series of releases that will bring a native port of the AmigaOS to the PPC. This is NOT about WarpOS, vs. anybody. It is an Amiga Inc. port of the OS. You may infer nothing else from this.
  3. AmigaOne A1200 is the first new hardware, for the Amiga, and we are still planning a standalone ATX board and other new pieces of hardware. AmigaOne for the A1200 will be out this summer. We are then looking at releases later in the year, for the new standalone designs.

  • AmigaDE doing great and on target with the goals that we set forth and we will continue development efforts.
  • AmigaOS 4.0 out this summer with the first of the AmigaOne Zico specification machines.
  • Sharp is a new partner of Amiga Incorporated. More will soon be released about our relationship.
  • There will be more partners and more announcements soon.
  • This is a great time to be part of the Amiga Family.
  • For more in-depth information there is a new technical update to be posted later today.

I thank you all for your support and look forward to a very exciting year before us!

Bill McEwen, and the rest of the team at Amiga, Inc.

As promised in McEwen's Executive Update, meanwhile technical details are available:

Technical Update Part 1
Technical Update Part 2

Elbox Website with New Design
The Elbox website has got a completely new look enabling easy navigation, now. But the site seems to be under construction, yet. Most of the buttons still don't contain any information. For example under 'Download' there isn't the driver software expected for download.
