David Connolly writes: Maintaining a commercial business in the Amiga market has become increasingly difficult. I don't just mean in terms of the poor sales, but in terms of maintaining professional communication and business relationships. I don't feel I am able to offer a truly professional service for the Amiga as I have failed on both these counts. I have made inproper comments on mailing lists and failed to attract developers to sign for CS&E. As I have made the announcement before that CS&E would leave the classic Amiga but come back for the next generation, it is with regret that I have to say this time the company is leaving the Amiga to concentrate on the PC development. Amiga Survivor will be continuing as a non-profit making magazine through the editorial staff but CS&E will continue to lend a hand in taking orders. I wish the Amiga all the best and will be keeping a very close eye on all the developments as an eager customer.

In reply to Comment 4 (CCRider):
They published Max Rally and a small magazine (either survivor or informer I can't remember which)
Basically, Mr. Connolly felt obliged to publicly slag off everyone. He started with Alive Mediasoft (OK he was right with that one), but has basically had a pop at every UK Amiga company on public forums.
His last was at Amigactive (on the amigactive ML no less). People on the list felt that he should deal with his AA problems directly and told him accordingly. He then proceeded to threaten several members of the list privately. Then he suddenly announced that he was leaving the Amiga market to go into PC publishing. Shortly after this he was banned from the list for his threats.
I don't think too many people will be crying over his departure from the market.
