YeeHaw and welcome to the year 2000;
I want to make something very clear from the beginning we have
been told, that Amiga was purchased by Gateway because of the
Patents, and that there were not even aware of the Amiga installed
base, or the people.
Gateway purchased Amiga because of Patents, we purchased Amiga
because of the People.
Without the people standing behind, developing, creating,
purchasing and continuing to believe in the Amiga there never would
have been anything for Gateway to purchase. We recognize this, and
it is because of you, and what you have continued to accomplish
with Amiga that we have purchased the company.
I want to make sure that everyone knows and understands what
this all means to you the true Amigans.
Here is what was acquired from Gateway:
1. All trademarks logo's etc.
2. All existing inventory of Amiga International
3. All existing licenses.
4. License to All Amiga patents (Gateway still owns the patents,
but we are able to use them).
5. All web sites, and registered domain names.
6. The Amiga OS and all that is associated with the OS.
7. The Amiga operation as it exists today.
Specific details of the developer system, the OS partners and
how one can begin developing will be released in the next couple of
We will be making an announcement on January 8th, 2000 with one
of our partners at CES in Las Vegas, and more details will follow
Fleecy, Myself, Petro, and the rest of the team are not going to
make promises and create presentations and demos. We are going to
deliver products, services, and the rest of the world will know
what you have already known.
We will be officially changing the name of Amino Development
Corporation to the Amiga Corporation this week, and we will let
everyone know of this change shortly once it is officially
I want to thank all of you for your continued support we will
make Amiga what it should have been, and more importantly what it
Keeping the faith,
Bill McEwen President/CEO
