The Amiga Museum

Although I still have much work to do, I hope that by starting this thread here it will help motivate me, and provide a way of people giving feedback.

At this point, I'd say it's still in early alpha stage, there are still pages with little to no content on them, and others that still need a lot of work. But I'm getting there, slowly, with the help of another member of this forum.

If you'd like to have a look for yourself, keep in mind that it's nowhere near finished, and I ask for constructive feedback please: http://theamigamuseum.com/

Currently I have yet to add much information about the era after the end of Commodore.

Why another site like this, when there are lots of other sites along these lines already? Because I want this to provide all the information possible, all in the one place. For example, on the page for the Amiga 1000, down the bottom of the page I have linked to all the documentation I could find that is relevant.

I have much planned for this, including hopefully selectable 'themes', so it can look like 1.x, 2.x, MagicWB etc. But that is far in the future at this stage.

Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Don't know about constructive, but I can say I like it!

I know there are heaps on 3D artists like myself who got their start on the Amiga - it might be worth a mention how the Amiga was the first computer to bring 3D animation to home computers.

Thank you very much, I appreciate it!

Good point, I'll make a note of that on several pages I think, the main page, the computing landscape page and the notable uses of the Amiga page.

The Amiga documents page is quite an interesting read

Well one thought that occurs to me is that the man possibly has an undocumented case of bipolar disorder.
Here's a choice quote from WikiPedia's entry on the condition which could explain Bill McEwen's behaviour

Getting back on topic:

I just had a thought of something you might like to add to your site somewhere. And that is links to the various modern WB packages such as ClassicWB, BetterWB, AmiKit, etc.

Also, pages for versions 3.5, 3.9 and possibly version 4 of Workbench are needed I feel.

Ahh, yes, good ideas, thank you, I shall do that.

Pages for Workbench 3.5, 3.9 and 4.x will be added in the future.

I've also added a page dedicated to Deluxe Paint: http://theamigamuseum.com/software/a.../deluxe-paint/
