Sounds like "Hunger grows while you eat", or something like that

With that logic, I would say that OS4 is like a fat mans fantasy. (buffet, with a major spread!)

Did he say he was looking for some work to do?

Does he want to get paid?

If not I think some of the things he mentioned would be fine projects!

I totally agree with his list of things that the Amiga needs:

Up to date web browser.
Better printer support.
Updated office type software.

I think those are the three biggest. I have a feeling it won´t take too long before we see some real progress on these. The web browser seems to me to be the most urgent.

The printer support for Amiga at any time in it´s entire life has been very weak. In fact, I would even say that it is the one thing that has held Amiga back in the publishing world.

The office stuff would be nice to have, but it will not be much good without printer support.


This was a great article and it is always good to hear from a dedicated Amigan making some headway. Petunia seems pretty good so far. I think I would have asked him about the options for Petunia and configuration type stuff.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Thanks for the interview!

I was in Szombathely once when I lived in Austria. Sadly I haven't been able to see much more of Hungary, but nice to know there are Amigans living there.
