The ill-fated Alive Mediasoft are back, under the name Alive World. On their website they are selling Mac games, DVDs and, funnily enough, R'n'B music. In addition, MacWorld claim in their news item that "the company plans to ship a CD compilation of games called Amiga 4 Mac. It will be a collection of classic Amiga games and an Amiga OS emulator."

The description on our page is as follows: 'Haage & Partner (authors of AmigaOS 3.5 and 3.9) is waiting for the approval of Amiga Inc CEO. BillMCEwen to begin coding Amiga OS V4.0 . This new version will probably feature a new kickstart rom and full PowerPC support. If you want an official AmigaOS for PPC please join the petition for Amiga OS 4.0. Leave Your Message to Amiga Inc. and let your voice be heard...P.S.:Please do not start MorphOS vs AmigaOS discussion here...We think that MorphOS is a new PPC OS and should be considered seperately from AmigaOS.'" You can sign the petition here.

You can make requests for your favourite tunes on the site as well as send new ones to be added to the playlist yourself. The station uses a sreaming MP3 format that can be listened to on the Amiga with for example StreamMP3 or Streamer (both from Aminet)
