Chicago, Illinois – August 18th, 2009
For Immediate Release
Amiga Seeding the Success Campaign from DiscreetFX
The Amiga computer represents a lot of firsts in the computer industry but it also represents many missed opportunities. Since the death of Commodore in 1994 the Amiga has descended into dark times. They say you learn most from your failures and not your successes and this is most certainly the case when it comes to Amiga. And yet some good things have happened as well.
The Amiga market has branched off into some healthy competition with the arrival of MorphOS, AROS & Amiga OS 4.1. The Amiga emulation scene is alive and well with Amiga Forever 2009 from Cloanto. And lets not forget the hard work of the developers of Minimig, Natami & CloneA. Amiga developers have transcended the need of one company controlling the destiny of Amiga and have forged ahead in interesting ways.
It's this Amiga spirit that DiscreetFX loves and we want to nurture. So from time to time we will donate $100 to great Amiga developers. No, this is not a ton of money but it is a gesture that will encourage positive feelings and development in the Amiga community of families. If a developer or even a user does something outstanding that pushes forward the Amiga, MorphOS, AROS or Amiga OS 4.1 brand we will send them this little reward. If this program is well received then donation amounts may increase.
Today's winner is Nova Design in the USA. Nova Design has worked tirelessly and created the killer product ImageFX Studio. Congratulations Nova Design! Please support this great developer, we already have by sending them $100 via Paypal. They are not alone and it takes many to change the world. But it is our sincere hope that the Amiga scene can grow again. Thanks again Nova Design for all your hard work and your the winner for August 2009. Who will the next winner be? Feel free to participate in the process and let us know via e-mail who you think deserves to win. They can be MorphOS, Amiga OS, OS 4.1, AROS users or developers. That does not matter, what does matter is that they worked hard and pushed the community forward in a positive way.
