The moment has arrived for delivery of Phase I on AmigaShare.com Phase I is fully functional and open to the entire community. From scratch (around 6 weeks ago), the team at AmigaShare begun the creation of a site that is focussed on the user and innovative features (specifically for OS4). The initial offering is evidence of their fresh approach.

Chris Nillissen, co-founder of AmigaShare.com commented:

"This last week sure has been hectic. We had a lot to do in order to deliver on our promise for the release of Phase I to the entire Amiga community. We were focussed on sign off. That is, getting through our internal tests as well using feedback from our selected Amiga testers.

Well, now we eagerly await participation and feedback from the community itself, as well as their support and assistance in growing the site. In particular, we invite you all to use the facilities and upload your favourite Amiga applications".

Visit AmigaShare.com

Thanks you,
The AmigaShare Team

Hardly the entire community. It irks me to read trollisms like this, it's just like the slogan "Amiga community portal" is a trollism. It clearly is for the minority... even if you take into account supporters, and not necessarily owners, of OS4.. still a minority.

This web refers to the real one Amiga with future, not to the peg/mos that doesn´t have anything that to see with Amiga.
Even I don´t deal because this heaviness of bothering the users of a1/Os4 on the part of these blue trolls, if it{*he;she*} doesn´t like to you the future products/Amiga create yours own forums, community, etc ... on morphos/Pegasos, that you are bad than the users of windows.

I thought OS5 was cancelled due to a new owner who has no interest in a combined ADE/AOS system? In fact, ever since the KMOS announcement, i haven't really heard much of future plans at all.

I have a feeling that they mean the Amiga community. Doesn't seem like trolling to me. If you don't include yourself under that definition, fine, but try not to be sensitive about it.

Yeah that's the exact same point I made in a previous thread and got flamed for it - some idiot even claimed OS4 + A1 accounted for 99% of the Amiga community :)

Hell, may as well start up a website specifically for owners of 1D4 A1200's with Apollo 040-25 cards and 16MB fast RAM running OS3.5 and claim it's for the entire Amiga community - the user bases are probably equal.

You don't see people starting PC Community websites and then telling everyone who doesn't own a machine by IBM that they aren't allowed to join because "It's not a real PC!"

It isn't clear to me what advantage this site has over Aminet.

Anyone care to explain?

Of course it looks nicer, but that tends to slow things down considerably.

There is no evidence at all at present as to which will have bigger sales in the future (say, the next five years), AmigaOne or Pegasos. Hopefully both product lines will do well and be profitable, so the total market for Amiga software authors will increase.

A good way to set up a shareware site would be to provide a text listing as in Aminet, but with a code next to each link to say which Amiga variants the software runs on. However, most do say now in the link to the readme - if they are for anything other than plain 68k classic.

They mean the minority sub-community that is OS4/A1.

I do include myself, but they don't.

In reply to Comment 8 (Don Cox):
Yes it might not be clear YET as to the advantage of this site. However, AmigaShare have many plans, for the site and specifically the software library.

To most points I would agree that the site, in its current state, is just another aminet but with a nice interface built around it. I see this as important as it provides an easy, simple and more importantly a professional looking interface for new comers.

With the soon release of AmigaOS 4, both the OS and the community has to start presenting itself professionally and colorfully to expand its hold in the market. People from the Mac and PC world expect a professional and/or nice looking OS, Apps and websites.

Secondly, but in AmigaShare’s eyes most importantly, the software library integrates with our other AmigaShare services. One of the services we aim at providing is an Authoring Center for AmigaOS Software developers. This service will provide Amiga Developers, free of charge, the following features:
• Full e-commerce payment gateway system
• Submission of software on the AmigaShare software library
• Source code to make your application. Shareware or a Demo.
• Source code to implement in-application payments via the AmigaShare e-commerce payment gateway.
• Advertising and Promotions.
• And much more.

I hope this has given you some incite to why we are creating a Software Library and how at least one of our services fits into it.
