This Old Workbench, Episode Five
Renovation from the ground up
My Ideas for a new Amiga OS

Amazing Computing, the last real North American Amiga magazine.

In this article, I'd like to present a few of my ideas for the next
generation Amigas.  I've also included an updated idea for a tower
case for the PowerAmiga.  This is in no way connected with Viscorp,
PIOS, ProDAD, Phase V or any other parties, living or dead, and any
resemblance thereof is purely coincidental.

All the Workbench "screenshots" were created using Personal Paint,
Brilliance, and ADPro, using ideas from Workbench (along with 3rd
party Workbench enhancement programs) as a base.  The tower design was
done in Aladdin4D.  Figure2a is a special edition I did for Asha
DeVelder, a long time Amiga Artist.  You can see some of her work at
her Web page:

This article, and accompanying illustrations © copyright Dave Matthews
1996.  Freely distributable as long as all files remain together.

NOTE:  Most of the illustrations are in PNG, rather than GIF, because
PNG has excellent compression, support for true color images, and is
an open and FREELY distributable standard.  PNG support is widely
available on most platforms, including the Amiga.  I hope this is not
a problem for people, but I feel the advantages of PNG outweigh the
disadvantages.
