Prof's Amiga Computers
Link to Amiga Inc.
Welcome to my Amiga Computing page, For those of you who don't know;
An AMIGA is a totally different kind of computer,
As Different as the Macintosh, But Easier to use.
There Will be Graphics here as soon as I get the pics taken, scanned,
The Scanner makes them massive, 'cause I'm a quality freak. But ImageFx
is working great !
Basically Just me struttin about my computers.
My Favorite Computer is My old Amiga 4000. It has seen me through
And I expect to keep it for a while yet. Since AMIGA Inc. hasn't
designed a replacement for the near future.
However, There is supposed to be a new machine out this Summer !!
New news: Amiga bought by a startup Co. run by Bill McEwan & Fleecy Moss!!!!,
They have re-named thier company to Amiga something or other,
and got all rights to the Amiga name & equipment Including the websites.
Nothing yet on when we can expect anything new at this point....
He just got it the first week of Jan 2000, Watch the Amiga Inc Site for news...
Now has agreements with TAO group and Haage & Partner.
Also Saying they have Amiga OS & Corel LinuxOS running with Corel(tm) Wordperfect 2000 Smoothly.
And many other Linux Programs (Quote: "Over 117 applications including many games")
More to follow
On the Local Front:
I have recieved & installed OS 3.5, It will run on all the
existing machines, as long as you have OS3.1 Rom(s).
I like it, as it seems to run ReTargetable Graphics much smoother. There are a lot
of improvements in it over the old system.
People are saying it won't install right, But I had no problem once
I started from a clean workbench.
Shut down all your patches!!! Then install it, It should go fine.
I noted I had to Select YES to the query about a 4x IDE adapter to get
an install of a User group members' copy to work,
but it could be the machine, It has a Warp accelerator & a Toaster/Flyer installed.
