Adelaide Amiga Meeting January 2015

Our first Amiga meeting for 2015 was held in January 2015 at the usual Adelaide venue - Clarence Park Community Centre.

We had a lot of interest in the event thanks to George (AmigaMan101) promoting the event on Amiga.org, and a lot of people turned up with their Amiga systems to show the attendees and discuss all things Amiga on the night!

Thanks to Epsilon for supplying the photos from this event.

Epsilon brought his AmigaOne X1000 System along, running the latest release of AmigaOS, AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition:

The X1000 certainly got plenty of attention on the day - AmigaOS 4.1 has come a long way from the Classic AmigaOS 1.3, 2.0 and 3.1 days - SATA, USB support, PCI-e support, HTML5 web browser, and plenty more as well:

Classic Amigas were also well represented on the day - Amiga A1200 (personally signed by Petro!), Amiga 500's and Amiga 1000 systems too:

There was certainly plenty of interest in the demonstrations and explanations by Andrew Wilson (formerly of Phoenix Microtechnologies) of the Amiga 1000 replacement "Phoenix" motherboard he helped design and develop:

Epsilon posted a blog entry that covered the event in detail with plenty of photos (including some of the ones in this post). Link is here:


We hope to see everyone again at the next Amiga Meeting, planned for May 2015. See you then!
