2012 on the X1000 - A Look Back

Image
Given that it is almost the end of the year, I thought it would be good to look back over the year 2012 and significant releases for AmigaOne X1000 and it operating system AmigaOS4 during that time.

I do know (and acknowledge) that there has been plenty of activity around MorphOS, AROS and Classic AmigaOS3.x platforms too in 2012 (I run all three of these platforms as well), but these are not the focus of this AmigaOne X1000 blog as it runs AmigaOS4. It would be interesting to compare MorphOS 3.1 and AmigaOS 4.1.6 performance on the same X1000 hardware, but that's another story!

It's been a great year in 2012 with so many things happening - let's get started!

On the Amiga hardware side in 2012, we of course saw the long awaited release of the AmigaOne X1000 running AmigaOS 4.1 Update 5! The systems are sold by Amigakit.com. The first batch of X1000's released was called the First Contact release, which I was lucky enough to be part of.
