Bill McEwen interview at GameSpy.com : Comment 1 of 8ANN.lu

OK, what's wrong with GameSpy's html code (or is it AWeb)? Visiting with AWeb 3.4, most pages loaded and displayed fine, but when revisiting them (navigating back and forth) most were blank green pages under the header, until I reloaded the page. Why should there be ANY difference between viewing and reviewing a page?
I've seen even worse on other sites, totaly blank pages when revisiting.

In reply to Comment 1 (Elliott Olson):
Aweb is a great webbrowser, but it still has some holes that need to be filled. The javascript engine is also hurt some bit. More and more websites use stylesheets for their design. Amiga browsers are still lacking here too. The good news is that AWeb is still in development, albeit not as much as before. The holes in Aweb is one of the reasons why I, and I guess many others, have not bought it. Perhaps the author could give us some news or present us with a FAQ, so that we could get an idea of what we would get from an investment ;o)

Great comment. If you don't want to use an Amiga web browser, don't buy one, and they will never improve; you'll be happy.

At last - a cheaper "student" version of the AmigaDE is coming out.
I wonder if the anyone who buys the SDK now will be "upgraded" to the full release of the AmigaDE when it comes out - after all, the sole aim of the SDK is to help "make it all possible" by developing our own software solutions in order to make the system more viable as a mainstream OS...

In reply to Comment 4 (Colin Wilson):
Well, a "student" SDK will make a lot more developments appear, but I am in wanting of the whole thing. ;o) Hope they can manage to release a v1 soon of the whole DE environment. Perhaps they could at least give us a clue about how my future desktop will look? (I think it is a good tradition with screenshots.)

>The future is looking bright again for the long-lost Amiga OS as it looks to >resurrect itself in a revolutionary new product: AmigaDE
This line in the article irritated me. It is wrong. Amiga OS is not being resurrected, it is being replaced, dumped, abandoned.

The apologists use the word 'progress'.

Hmm. I LOVE the way Bill claims that this Amiga is the same company as the one which released the systems in teh 1980s.
Way to go, Bill! :(
