Large acts must be celebrated on a grand scale. As of December 2002 the German print magazin AMIGAplus and varyingly partners are assigning the annual Amiga Award. With this price elected representatives of the Amiga-community are awarded for special achievements during the last 12 months at a time. The laureates of the Amiga Award 2002 will be honored at the AMIGA + Retro Computing in Aachen, Germany, on 7 December 2002. Read on. Take part in the elections!

Express your Thanks with us to all Amiga developers out there once in a year!

The elections will be put together by one third of these parties: Firstly you as an active or inactive Amiga user, secondly selected representatives of the community and thirdly the editorial staff of AMIGAplus. So you have the opportunity to take part in the appointment of the Amiga Award 2002 laureates!

Among all participants of the election we draw prices in the value of over 800 Euro, among them one Amiga 1200/060 sponsored by eXpreSystems as well as various games and applications. The winners among the users will be announced on December 20th, 2002.

Participation conclusion is December 6th, 2002, at 15:00 CET. The course of law is excluded as always.

Amiga Award 2002 : Comment 1 of 23ANN.lu

I spotted a printing mistake:
" - Eyetech (AmigaOne)"
Where it says "Eyetech", it should be "Mai Logic, Inc."
That really should've been fixed before the voting opened. Thanks.

My two cents:
How can we vote for products that have not been released yet ?
I think there are a lot of names missing here. Where is Elbox and where is IOSPIRIT just to cite a few ?

Time to clean your glasses (or get some if you don't already have them). IOSPIRIT are in that list.
re:Elbox, I think the list is limited to CREDIBLE developers, not those without the integrity God gave a pissant.

What exactly would you nominate Elbox for?
Given the current list I would have to vote Amithlon.

I'm more afraid that the driver might react to the vote "somehow" :)

In that casem Bplan/Genesi should be DCE, afterall it's on their machines the Pegasos is made.
Thinking about it...smart move..
Sell your machinery to DCE, same for HW specs ad rights, then go bancrupt, then form a new company, and then 'use' the DCE facilities to make the Pegasos. Impressive thinking !

In reply to Comment 13 (SimplePPC):
Duh.
The nominee bplan GmbH designed and "invented" the Pegasos board. The unnominated Mai Logic, Inc. designed and "invented" the Teron boards.
Whatever fabrication facility that actually manufactures the physical boards (DCE in the Pegasos case, no idea in the Teron case) is irrelevant.
Nominating a distributor like Eyetech for being a monopoly on distributing Teron boards to AmigaOS users, or whatever the nomination is supposed to be for, is like... I dunno... Like nominating Computer City for the fantastic achievement of ordering Cherry keyboards with boingball keys... ;-)

Maybe we should add IBM to the nominee list ! They afterall designed the ppc motherboards on which all PowerPC Reference Platforms are based ?
Or is the Pegasos a completely, new design based on nothing that was already available ? Just like the OS they make :)

WOuldn't have a problem with nominating Computer City, it's not because it is based on Cherry keyboards that it shouldn't be regarded as a product. Reminds me of cars and the engines..

@SimplePPC
Can you stop saying bullshits please? Where have you seen that the POP specifications is a design?
It's only minimal specifications, there is no design on this specifications made by IBM. And it's hopefull that IBM let mainboards creators make their own design.

You should read more carefully... nominees are not selected from developers only, but chosen for some special achievement(s).

In reply to Comment 19 (Cinamon):
I would put Jens Schonfeld at the top, for the new Catweasel. Did this
come out too late to reach the lists?
"Hollywood" is another important introduction.
Amithlon is really a product from 2001 not 2002, and the AmigaOne is
really a product from 2003.

In reply to Comment 20 (Don Cox):
I agree fully with Don.
We should have in the list only products that have been released in 2002.
I took a wrong example of missing developer with citing IOSPIRIT (IOSPIRIT is in the list). I can cite Epic Interactive as another example.
