Here is a collection of images taken at the PowerDev #8 in september 2010 in our convention center.
PowerBook and PowerMac systems running MorphOS were shown. Even
the old PowerMac with 400 Mhz and Rage128 graphics card
makes a good impression of the usability. MorphOS simply is
fast on any hardware. PowerMac support will be released with
Of course we had a wide bandwith of hardware running.
Pegasos1, Pegasos2, Efika, yA1, AmigaOne, A2000 and several
MacMinis were used during the meeting.
Beside hardware there also was the software. A sneak preview
of the new Ambient panel system was shown which has some
quite unique features. These new panels will replace the old
once in later Ambient versions.
Also a sneak preview of MagicAction was shown. Its a MorphOS
adapted version of the well known Automator.
The new MorphOS scanner application and driver system
Scandal was demoed to the audience by using an Epson
scanner. Its a quite nice peace of software and even the
transparency unit worked.
We had alot of fun and interesting topics to discuss during
the entire meeting. And it was nice to see several new
software products getting ready for being released.
A small museum with old hardware was shown at the entrance.
There was even a Busch 2090 4 Bit computer (CPU: TMS 1600)
with 768 byte of system memory, which worked the whole 72
hours without a crash. Not bad for a 27 year old computer
Another highlight was MorphOS playing 3D movies on the
Pegasos2 system using a 3D display and proper glasses.
