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