I had some problem with the mail bounching but eventually I got a valid mail address to the director in charge. So we will just se what they reply on Monday morning. In the mean time I will code and drink Lagavulin.
So there is a chance then?

Here are some more info.
Joeled Well it seems like skuggan is working hard to get it to work. He just managed to compile libspotify. Future is looking bright for spotify on Amiga Maybe tomorrow will bring a suprise?
*skuggan 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.
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 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.
@LiveForIt: Cred to you for trying to port despotify in the first place. :)
