Hi folks,

While browsing YouTube today, I stumbled across an interesting video uploaded by Odin1899. It is called the Unofficial AmigaOS 3.5 Promotion Tape and it is (you guessed it) a promotion for AmigaOS 3.5. πŸ˜‰ I’m not exactly sure about the release date of the video, but I don’t think 2001 is correct, since AmigaOS 3.5 was released earlier. My guess is that it is from 1999 or 2000. I remember buying AmigaOS 3.5 in the year 2000 and that I was very happy with it – it was a big step forward from 3.1 as far as I can remember.

I have to mention that the video features footage of Petro Tyschtschenko, the former President of Amiga International. He is both a legend and a hero in my eyes, as he kept the momentum going in the 90’s and onwards. He’s a very charismatic person that brought us a lot of hope back then.

Anyway, here’s the video! Enjoy the show folks!

So, what did you think of the video? Did you like it? Thanks in advance for your comments. πŸ™‚


  1. I had almost forgotten about those Amiga phone covers. Weren’t they custom made buy a guy who airbrushed them? I remember that I seriously considered to purchase one.
    The animation in the end looks very dated! I can almost not believe that it’s from 99-00!


    • Hi Mads,

      Thanks for commenting. πŸ™‚ Yes, those Amiga-skinned phones looks cool. I don’t know anything about them though. Do you remember how much they went for back then? Maybe it is possible getting hold of one second hand? πŸ˜‰

      Hehe.. I agree. The animation looks pretty dated today. A lot has happened since then, that’s for sure. I wonder how we will look at stuff made today in 10 to 12 years time..


  2. Cool video! This is the first time I’ve seen it. Thanks for sharing. He-he, it’s no lie that the Windows Setup Installation Process could be a real pain back then… πŸ˜‰ That blonde Amiga-girl doesn’t seem to have problems with OS 3.5 whatsoever! πŸ˜€ LOL!

    WoW! Petro’s Amiga car looks nice! It looks like a styled Opel Manta! Believe it or not; my first car was an Opel Manta but unfortunately without the Amiga stickers… πŸ˜‰

    I fully agree with you that Petro gave us hope back then. He was the last one who really tried to get the Amiga into the market again. Too bad it was already too late to catch up with mainstream PCs.. 😦
