Executive Update - Amiga
Status and Announcements
Bill McEwen - February 22, 2002
Greetings to the Global Amiga family,
Yes, I know that it has been more than a week, and yes the deal is still
on, and yes we are moving very quickly as I will outline to you all below
I want to personally thank our friends and families for sticking with
us and with our dreams as they are coming to reality.
As Amiga has matured over the last two years, and our plans only slightly
changed I would like to say thank you to each and every one of you for
your patience and excitement as we move forward.
In 1999 Amiga, Inc. decided to take a very different road than the ones
previously charted for the community. It was met, by some, with disbelief,
most with excitement as a path was being laid towards a future where digital
content would be accessed by any digital device. Amiga selected an unknown
partner in the Tao-Group of Reading England, and I can assure you that
this was the best decision we have made.
Tao and Amiga have never been closer as a true partnership is in place.
I want to thank Francis Charig my dear friend, and the rest of the Tao
team as they been instrumental to the successes that will become public
However with all of the great plans that were in place and the product
development that had started there was still the issue of having funds
necessary to make it all happen, and the addition of Frank Wilde as our
Chairman has been amazing help, and I can say we are moving forward in
ways that are going to bring Amiga to new levels, and I could not be more
happy with the results that we are seeing.
Thank you to everyone of you who are keeping the faith and spreading
the truth about Amiga.
I have several announcements that are happening here, and you need to
know that we are definitely going to have more Amiga enabled products
ship in 2002 than in any year previous.
I can assure you that your patience will be met with great rewards, and
there are many others who are now learning what you have known. That Amiga
has the most robust, talented, dedicated community of any computing platform
today or in the future.
Thank you again for your continued prayers and support. You are about
to be rewarded.
