That big announcement that people mistakenly assumed would have something
to do with the Amiga has come out.

Gateway's newest Destination big-screen PC/TV now comes with DVD.

Yes, that's it.

That's why I started my potential sales thread. I wanted an upbeat
discussion. All I got was sucky negative off-topic responses (probably
by people with a persecution complex). Nothing like keeping the positive
energy flowing.


1. Here's the big announcement


Strategic direction and future plans include new software technology, system availability
and Web site

London, UK May 15, 1998 Amiga Inc., a pioneer in multimedia development, today
announced plans to provide a new software architecture that will offer enhanced levels of
performance and useability for the Amiga community. Amiga will develop and license
software technology that offers leading multimedia solutions for the emerging digital
convergence market.

"Amiga has the opportunity to move ahead of the industry in setting standards to follow,"
said Jeff Schindler, general manager of Amiga, Inc. "By working closely with Amiga
developers and user groups, we will all have the opportunity to share in this exciting,
emerging market."

To build upon Amiga's legacy as a multimedia leader, the company announced Amiga OS 4.0
which is slated to launch in November of '98. Amiga OS 4.0 will have a new user interface
and support Amiga legacy software with an integrated emulator. Hardware developers are
already working on solutions for software and hardware backward compatibility with the new
Amiga architecture.

Amiga, Inc. also announced plans to unveil a personal computer that is an industry
standard architecture solution. The new system will provide a bridge to the next
generation of Amiga technology. The system is scheduled for availability in November with

Also available soon, Amiga Inc. will host, the official web site for

continue to be the location for Amiga distributors and legacy product sales and licensing.
