A Time Machine Hot Tub will be available for all Amiwest attendees to enjoy and warp back to 1985 when the A1000 was introduced. We can feel the 80s all over again when computing was really fun.

I think we all know what you are after - you want an orgy. You have a dirty mind. I'm in!

@ jorkany

Looking for more cannon fodder for your moo friends eh. Doesn't it get boring? You know acting like a 'pre teen' (for lack of a better term) on that site

I expect lots of announcements, I just don't expect them to follow through on them

Seriously though, blabbing on about your plans is not really worth a whole lot, what people actually want to see are those plans realized.

It's possible there could also be announcements related to MorphOS or AROS. AmiWest isn't just about OS4 you know.

I expect them to show the promised OS4 netbook that should have been here already. And as a bonus, a peek of development version of OS4.2.0 running in true SMP on an A1X1K...

My expectations that any of it will happen is kind of low, though...
