[News] Microsoft to promote Amiga AnywhereANN.lu

As announced on the WOASE show, Microsoft will put its considerable PR machine behind PDA/cellphone content supplied by Amiga Inc and its developers Microsoft will help distribute Amiga Anywhere content.

Packs will have "AMIGA written in bold letters all over them", (well that was the consensus anyway) with royalties going right to AInc and its developer community.

This will (obviously) allow Amiga(DE) content to be a lot more widespread and to be sold at major stores.

Gain for Microsoft: Good content available on their platforms, makes them more competitive.

Gain for AmigaInc: Influx of money, PR, wider interest from other companies and a better economical base to continue on towards AOS5.

Note: Microsoft has not bought any part of AmigaInc, nor do they control any part of Amiga. Microsoft is an Amiga Anywhere distributer. That's all.

(freely after news and comments on amiga.org)

This is one of the best ways to promote the Amiga name. So stop your negative comments and get with the program. It's the Amiga Anywhere part of the business that kept the cash flow going while OS4 and the AmigaOne were being built. Those 2 products haven't generated any cash flow yet.
No cash no Amiga! So they made a good discision.
But you allways have to have some whinners where ever you go. Mostly deluded people that think they can do a better job or think they have something interresting to say.
And if Microsoft will promote Amiga Anywhere then it might be taken as a more serious company by other big PC and software companies and not the way these companies look at Amiga now. A small company of hobbiests

The true gain is for micky crap if this where really amiga we really wouldnt even consider doing this. There is no gain for Amiga its all microsoft. We are helping microsoft, dam guys helping microsoft. That is so wrong its the death of Amiga for sure.Bill, both of them,have done what they had intended to do. Kill amiga by having the execs. kill it off.

Thats right you had the specs the hardware you could have had this out by 2000 Chirstmas. No excuses. Thats the real Irony so dont take what I coined on who is saving whom.

Its the facts plain and simple alo like me belive he is right thats why ther arnt many Amigans left in the community hell, There aren't any hardly at all and by what you have just said ,like yourself you cant see whats going on. The real shawn casued the mass exdous from amiga, and the money situaton with Amiga inc., or should say lack there of. Thats right, he called around to make sure Amiga inc. wasnt to get any money. He used his contacts. From the Royal family to people in hollywood, Newtek, you name them. He used his contacts to make sure that they lost money. Soon very soon the final blow will come to the gang of three from what I hear.
How do I know this? If you had gone on yahoo like he asked you would have been able to get all this information and more like how amiga really is mickysoft.:
1. Use common sense. You dont deal your main enemy . A lesser one, yes like Mac. You want to knock out the competion. Thats a load of shit promting competion for microsoft. They dont care nor need it. There doing this to look good for the courts you &*^%. Of cousre the stupid idoits fell for it.
oh by the way ho matter what name i put up here you will more then likely call me shawn which from what im gathering is flattery. Dam guys wake up he, the real shawn has been right on every occasion. I know who i am you dont ,but to suffice it a person that knows what and when to say it.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. The fact that something is carried by CompUSA at one point in time, does *not* mean that it is also bought in reasonable numbers. Considering that OS development is pretty expensive when done professionally, I fail to see how anybody (including Fleecy Moss) could claim that Amiga Inc. does not need to worry about money again.
P.S. I honestly hope that all those developers who created games for AA/ADE, will finally start to get rewarded for their efforts. Without their games, Amiga Inc. would have nothing to show off to Microsoft or any other games distributor.

Well I think that Amiga Inc have got their timing just about right with Amiga Anywhere. Right now, some people in the USA are going nuts over Sprint PCS vision phones that can play games that look like they were developed on a VIC-20. Imagine what these people will think when they see Planet Zed on their cellphones, produced by Amiga Inc and backed with the Micro$oft seal of approval.

If it has to Microsoft, then let it be Microsoft.
That's the best possible future for Amiga Inc. anyway.
To be able to get Microsoft to do this, says a whole lot about the quality of Amiga Inc. new product line.
Believe me when I say...
Microsoft is not doing this for a friendly gesture.
They are doing it because they believe in Amiga Inc. content.
If people would stop thinking in terms of hating everyone, they might actually catch what's going on here.
This is HUGE news to the Amiga community, and should not be overlooked.
and believe me.
Bill Gates is not saving Amiga.
He's investing in his future,just like Amiga Inc.

In reply to Comment 20 (Darrin):
This is excellent for Amiga Inc in the short term, as, like Fleecy says, it solves all their money problems. However, on the offchance that OS4/5 ever get off the ground and start competing with Microsoft products, things get nasty. We all know how much leeway MS gives to its competitors. They'll threaten to cut off AInc's air supply unless they stop developing OS4/5.
Of course, that all assumes OS4/5 ever goes anywhere big. MS probably won't care about the odd 10,000 or so users, but as soon as the community hits 100,000, they'll look back on this day as the day AInc mortgaged their future in exchange for short term cash.
Such a pity, as the only other way out was bankruptcy. Sigh.
Microsoft to promote Amiga Anywhere : Comment 24 of 63ANN.lu
Posted by Joe "Floid" Kanowitz on 03-Nov-2002 13:42 GMT
Er, this is still vague. What *exactly* is MS doing for them? Distribution in an "MS Windows Powered(TM) Game Pack" with a big "Powered by AmigaAnywhere" logo on it? Literally (desperately) pushing the 100% Amiga-branded package to shelves in the hope of making PocketPC look more attractive?
If this is something like the deals Macromedia, Real and ISPs (think the "Online Services" folder) have cut, it's a good thing- companies have done it and survived before. If it's something else... enh.
The long-term 'danger' is pressure to turn 'Runs Anywhere' into 'Runs on PocketPC,' of course, combined with the risk of an embrace-and-extend or embrace-and-discard as the CLR continues to be pushed. Elate is so tiny that it's little trouble to ship a fresh ("official") runtime with each application, but if things get to a scenario like Java- where you end up needing both the MS runtime and the Sun runtime, and cross your fingers that the right one loads- then it's yet another opportunity for MS to stand up and say "See, if you wrote to .NET, you wouldn't have this trouble."
Still... Amiga has proven to be such a small fry in the past years that I doubt anyone MSwards has bothered to start scheming yet (and a buyout of AInc. wouldn't put their hands on any of Tao's sources, after all), so the real motives probably come down to "managing the software ecology" (perhaps billg or someone thought the Amiga was 'supar kewl,' so they don't mind spending the proverbial $50 ;) and maintaining some easily-managed competition), spiting Apple a bit for going open-source, and getting the PR win of 'something that acts like .NET' running on their palmtops.
Dell's selling iPods now. Strange world we live in.

Similarly, MS's embrace and extend or suffocate strategy has happened many times before, there is a very high chance that it will happen again.

In Mr. McEwens November announcement, he doesn't mention Microsoft, but does
talk about new partnerships, etc....
It seems as if what is happening is that Microsoft will boost anyone who
will help them sell their own products, and true they are very big.
The questions are many. Will Amiga, Inc. neglect Linux cell-phones/PDA's?
Will Amiga relegate AmigaOS 5 development to run only AmigaDE and co-boot
AmigaOS and Amiga emulation only as an afterthought?
I think the spirit of Amiga was to have cutting-edge technological
development and products that was efficient, and had a superior
performance AND price point compared to other "products"...
With todays computer speed development, a product that met those criteria
would be something like this:
1) 3-D holographic display 2) 24 bit surround sound 3) multi-OS,
full multitasking 4) correctable crash detection 5) small OS footprint
6) radio/TV (HDTV) input/output 7)drivers for all devices (e.g. surgical
robots, plastic fabricators and other goodies all for $1200 or something
low like that......
The A1 seems like a good product as long as it allows me to speed up my
old Amiga apps...as far as new technology is concerned, I'm not sure
Amiga Inc is really going there. They want to be a company who creates, and
software for current tech machines, and is trying to interconnect the
data streams (which is a good idea anyway)...but it doesn't seem like
the superduper machine which we all are looking for is going to arrive
from anyone(as long as MS still controls what is able to be profitable)...
So, we're back to square one. Who wants to develop a technological wonder?
Who wants to see their technological wonder embraced by the "jaded"
technopopulace? Or is Microsoft compatability the final destination of
all of us?

Please people. Microsoft has agreed to act as an OEM for a game pack. Let's be real - it doesn't appear to be anything more than boosting their PDA content base in exchange for royalties. I don't see any mention of a strategic alliance, capital investment or a deal with the devil. And many of us believe that the first two can happen without the latter being inevitable.
Is it a good thing? Definitely. Does it mean the future is paved with gold or that this deal will allow them to have long term financial stability? Hardly. But what it does mean is that Amiga Inc. can use this relationship to leverage other opportunities. Let's face it, when people ask about your business partners they don't cringe in horror when you say Microsoft. It's a resounding endorsement, even if it's a minor one.
And for all the Microsoft naysayers stick your soothers back in your mouths. "True" Amigans will remember the days back in 1985 where we thought that Microsoft BASIC would be the one thing that would convince people that we were for real. Bring on Outlook, IE and Office... god forbid that the rest of the world would take us seriously.

Microsoft was found guilty of breaking federal anti-trust law and not punished.
Amiga Inc has consistantly communicated partnerships with phone based companies and products pending, though never materializing.
Is MS using Amiga to get the inside on competition?
Probably.
But one thing is for sure. Amiga is claiming association with a know federatl criminal.
That says alot for them and their followers.

Here's what I think this deal will result in:
1. For the time being, AmigaInc gets distributed. Money, etc. flows in. Good.
2. Micro$oft takes some credit for the content. Not great, but not awful.
3. Micro$oft burns AI 12-18 months from now by replacing AI's content
with their own propriatary slag.
Microsoft will burn AI just like they burn all their other partners. I read
an article this very morning about how a small California company that partnered
w/ M$ is doomed because M$ is "creating" their own competing product.

Hey, Tim, how's that conspiracy by Amiga companies to drive you (more) crazy working out? Are they still sending you porno CDs "on purpose"? What's the latest with Joanne Dow?

Or sit and make funny faces over the fact that Gary had a heart problem?
Hey, howabout the time you compared yourself with Christ? That was COMEDY GOLD, Tim.
I'm amazed you still have internet access after the junk you've pulled. But you didn't for a while there, did you? Yeah, that's right - you got it pulled when your ISP was told of your *rampant* abuses with your postings in various NGs. You know; foul language, indirect threats, that sort of thing.
Your past follows you around, Rue, and someone should always be there to remind you and everyone of just how sick you are. No, I take that back. You're not sick. It's obvious you just don't give a damn how you behave or what people think of you.

What I'd like to know is this:
The DE (Player, Anywhere, Whatever) was meant to be a HAL system.
So we know, we need a different DE for each device, since each device
has different harfware and/or OS. So far so good.
But I have the impression, that these products are tailored to the devices
they run on.
I would have expected to get identical products on top of different DE revisions.
