|It doesnt seem that clear to me [as a non-Finnish reader] as to where the DE bits are...|

|I can't find it also from the web page but the printed version (05/2002) has a very nice news story about "the return of the Amiga". It is on the first news page and nothing else on it ;)|
There are mentions of AmigaOne and OS 4.0, plus some pictures of AmigaDE games, oh and some OS 4.0 screenshots.

well as it is a Finnish magazine it hardly could be worth much for anyone outside Finland. I mainly posted this because there seems to be quite a number of Finnish readers here on ann aswell.
What makes the little news bit of DE on MB mag so interesting is the fact that the magazine hasn't been covering much amiga stuff since the demise of C= and has been all pc ever since. Everytime something little about amiga appears on the mag, it's usually something they almost laugh and joke about.
Seeing even a little bit of information of DE with a serious approach is positive. Especially when 99.99999% of the readers are not into the amiga, so this gives publicity for DE outside amiga community here in finland.
Also if Im not mistaken it's the biggest and only printed mag with FINNISH origin, so there should be ALOT of readers.

|And now the Finnish Amiga users community has been asked to write some Amiga stuff for Finnish PC Format (currently contains articles written in Finland, not only translated ones). I hope we can deliver.... ;)|

Just to clarify:
1) I like Amiga!
2) I like Finland!
Both you guys rock! ;)

|MikroBitti has a readership of over 365,000 people, which is considerable in a country and language population of just five million. It is by far the most read computer magazine in Finland and has a legacy-rich history of 18 years. Very few computer enthusiasts in Finland grow up without reading MikroBitti, although many often complain they grow out of it at some point.|

A minor correction there. MikroBitti covered Amiga until 1998 regularily (that is for years after Commodore's demise), and has done so on occasion since. I have counted at least two news pieces this year on Amiga developments prior to this full-page, first-news-page item on AmigaOne, Amiga DE and AmigaOS 4.0. This is a lot in contrast to what other paper magazines do over here.
Not that this really matters to most ANN readers. :-)
