ESPOO, FINLAND - April 2, 1998 - Saku 98, organized by the Finnish Amiga Users Group on March 28th in Vantaa, was visited by an estimated total of 500 people, making Saku 98 the biggest Amiga only event in Finland in years. Of the 500, almost 250 visitors were listening to the speech of Amiga International's managing director, Petro Tyschtschenko.
In his speech, Mr. Tyschtschenko introduced himself to the Finnish audience, announced the availability of cheap Amiga A1200 computers for user group members and launched the new Amiga hymn. After his speech, Mr. Tyschtschenko answered some questions and revealed a couple of interesting details, including the possibility of Netscape as part of future AmigaOS upgrades. He also mentioned the destiny of the remaining Walker models.
