Yes! I just manage to compile everything on Amiga and at the same time I got a positiv reply from Spotify on my request.
As it turns out many of the coders and bosses at spotify are old Amiga users and found porting to Amiga like a good idea.
They didn't have resources to do it right now but if the employees would do it on the "hack days" it would be ok.

So I wrote a letter that gets sent out to the engineering department tomorrow where we ask them to take on the challenge.

I promised to provide them with a fully equiped OS4.1 machine and full coding support.
Unless others would like to chip in I will pay for it with my own money and deliver it to them.

I will let you know how this turns out.

That is pretty cool. I hope that this turns out well, even though spotify doesn't isn't available in New Zealand yet (and I only found out this morning what it was).

The machine must be at least a Sam460 1.2GHz. with a good graphics card and a soundblaster 128 Live. Nothing less.

Hold the bounty until we get an answer wheter they take on the challenge or not.

This is great that a company outside the Amiga environment might do this. I don´t use spotify, but I´m in for the bounty and are also going to pay for their services if this happens :)

spotUp: This is more business than coding and nothing compared to my daily work. Besides all my energy comes from other enthusiastic amiga users like you and others.

I dont use spotify but i will donate some small cash when/if bounty is open, as you shouldnt take all on yourself. Im happy the more popular apps we got on miggy. The more the merrier. Maybe i start using it when/if arrives for amiga.

If this gets the green light, maybe we should ask trevor nicely about buying an x1000 for them?

Oh, btw.... You wouldn't happen to know anyone at skype also?
