After many months of painstaking work and research its finally here, AmigaOS.net!

The purpose behind AmigaOS.net is simple - present quality current Amiga software and highlight hardware availability on and for the Amiga platform in a unique way to help attract new potential users and also ex-Amigans to the Amiga.

2011 heralds the arrival of the first in a completely new range of next-generation Amiga hardware, the AmigaOne X1000! Want to find out more about this innovative new product? Go to www.amigaos.net/hardware.html

AmigaOS has so much to offer users in 2010, smooth and reliable internet browsing with an array of browsers available including OWB and if you like FireFox you will love Timberwolf which is coming soon to the Amiga platform.
Heard of OpenOffice? Sure of course you have, active development has already begun bringing this world class office suite to the Amiga - expected availability May-July 2011.

"So tell me what else can it do?" I can send and receive email? from a neat selection of email clients? "RSS?"? straight through your favourite browser? "And Artwork packages?"? great selection for home users, perhaps you've heard of Gimp or Photogenics?? "Can I upload using FTP?"? Yes!? "And Facebook?"?. Yes!? "err YouTube?"? Of course!? "Can I play all those classic Amiga-games if I really wanted to?"?. why yes! quite easily? "Can it multi-task?"? yes we practically invented it!

Currently under development and arriving soon on AmigaOS.net will be a dedicated Wiki for AmigaOS aimed at new users with little or no knowledge about the operating system. This Wiki acting as a help system for AmigaOS will, in detail, cover every aspect of how to use the operating system, from performing mundane tasks such as organising your files, installing software through to configuring the dock bar and a whole lot more.
If you would like to contribute to this on-going project please send an email to info@amigaos.net.

Alongside the launch of the website will be an extensive email marketing campaign promoting the website and the virtues of choosing an Amiga up until the end of the 2010. If you would like to receive this newsletter to forward on to your friends please send an email to marketing@amigaos.net and enter 'subscribe' in the subject heading.

Cool , but a few wishes if you don't mind:

- loading of pages with images are slow even on more or less fast line. I think it because that you not use thumbs, but just upload big images and resize it. Maybe you use some heavy format for images as well ..

- will be cool if use press on screenshot, and it start to be big, in his real size (to allow users to check all the moments and so on).


In others looks pretty normal and modern. Some more love and work on it, and that will be nice site :)

Nice! But I do have a concern:

Quote:
OpenOffice ... expected availability May-July 2011

I have yet to see any indication that this major project is even making substantial progress, let alone has an expected/official date it will be ready. Unless you got this from the developers mouths recently, I would strongly suggest removing *speculation*, as failure to meet those dates will just hurt the credibility of AmigaOS, the OpenOffice port project, and your web site.

Oh, and I noticed another problem:
www.amigaos.net takes you to the expected page, but amigaos.net doesn't. Most people will just type the latter, so it really needs to work.

Another thought, to avoid disappointing people:

You list "System Requirements" for games, but only mention the OS. You should really include a CPU speed minimum, because many of those 3D games don't run well on a 667MHz Sam440 (and maybe not a 733MHz one either). I suspect 800-1000MHz is the minimum for some of them.

I am happy to tell you which games don't run acceptably on my Sam440.

did everything on my end me thinks..but i'll have a quick peek later

also, I think it's important to add a section under the games highlighting that seamless classic emulation of games under OS4.x can be achieved quit nicely with glUAE and/or RunInUAE

oh and +1 to points made by kas1e (reduce size of game tabs) and ChrisH (min. system requirements)

The hardware link in your first post does not work.
It has a full stop at the end which then gives a 404 error.
Otherwise its looking good.

Great effort!

I love to see people putting in the effort instead of just talking about doing things. Kudos.

Hi there, this is just a quick message as I am at work atm. I have visited the first few websites you have managed long ago, but as I don't have an Amiga (yet!) its a real struggle when websites don't even have any screenshots (or outdated in some cases) of the products they are trying to sell!

If you can post some Images here on Amigans of some/most/all of these applications I will be happy to review/add them to the website. Please ensure any screenshots are taken in the default 4.1 colour theme, default background (if visible) and that the title bar of the window is active/blue.
