Amiga Seeding the Success Campaign

Chicago, Illinois – June 9th, 2008

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 4.0. The Amiga emulation scene is alive and well with Amiga Forever 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 is this Amiga spirit that DiscreetFX loves and we want to nurture. So starting today we will select one winner per month and give them $100 donation via paypal. No this is not a ton of money but it is a gesture that is meant to encourage positive feelings and development in the Amiga community of families. Each month if a developer or even user does something outstanding that pushes forward the Amiga, MorphOS, AROS or Amiga OS 4.0 brand we will send them this little reward. The first reward has already been sent in fact.

The winner is Jan Zahurancik's AmiKit. Jan has worked tirelessly and created a killer add on for WinUAE and the Amiga emulation scene. He is not alone and it takes many to change the world. But it is our sincere hope that the Amiga scene can grow one day again. One million users and 100,000 active developers would be just grand. Thanks again Jan Zahurancik for all your hard work and your the winner for June 2008. Who will July 2008's winner be? Feel free to participate in the process and let us know via e-mail who you think deserves to win in July. They can be MorphOS, Amiga OS, OS 4.0, 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.

Best regards

- DiscreetFX Team

Nice one Pyro!

Sadly, I have very little use for your productivity software. However if you were to branch into adventure games then I would support you with my business! Did Gameshop ever have any success?

I wish you and DiscreetFX all the luck for the future...

Nothing has come out of Gameshop yet, we are a patience bunch though. Hopefully in the future if the Amiga/MorphOS/OS4.0/AROS market grows some more.

AmiKit itself is the killer add-on.
