AMIcast - Episode 20 - Trevor Dickinson
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:01:46 PM »
Today's show is all about future of AmigaOS. My guest is Trevor Dickinson! This is hot stuff direct from great Amiga Party in Ireland.

The episode has two parts: first is the interview with Trevor, second is recorded audio from Trevor's speech at Amiga Ireland MeetUp 2017. Audio quality is not so perfect, but it's worth to listen. From this episode, you will learn about near future of AmigaOne and AmigaOS. There are tough questions and we are talking about: AmigaOne X5000 and upcoming Tabor (already running AmigaOS and software). Of course, there is a topic like web browsers (Odyssey and Timberwolf), office stuff (LibreOffice), Hollywood book, AMIStore and Alice (laptop) project. In second part Trevor talks about his Amiga story and answering questions from the audience, about: new developers, new hardware, software (for AmigaNG and Classic) and a situation with Amiga Inc (and Commodore).

Very informative and good interview!

And I do agree 100% about his view about full cooporation between the different Amiga branches.

With regards to documentation and tutorials. I do have the AOS 4 Emulation book, and its great! But there are different ways of accomplishing the same as the book form. Take Epsilons blog, it feels very much the same as the book in details. Then you have ASM tutorial produced by Photon on youtube. So the quality of the tutorial depends on the steps taken. Take Photons youtube channel; Its assumed you have close to zero knowledge of coding, and takes you thru it with focused babysteps, in a very orderly fashion. The AOS 4 book could be produced and released on a PDF too (altho the classic pdf readers are close to useless), but obviously having the physical version is brilliant.
