A nice article of a great show. Especially Alan's informative speech is also well worth checking out.

I think it's great that a non-amiga mag finds the time to come and attend a show and then do a 2 page article. And to top that, they agreed to have it translated and published.

I've sent out a couple of requests for articles (with very reasonable inquiries) but haven't gotten any replies from other magazines. Kudos for that!

Ah, I remember Datormagazin when it was still in tabloid
format. I remember they covering C64 and then starting to
have an "Amiga section". Great computer newspaper. They
even had Atarimagazin as an extra pamphlet from time to
time. I read a very good review of Dungeon Master in there
- two full pages - and that was the reason I got an Amiga
500 with 1MB RAM ...

It was a shame when they went
under. The new Datormagazin is of course not the same
thing, but at least they do tend to focus a little less on
Windows than many other "general" computer publications. I
wonder if there are any of the "original" writers involved
anymore? I do know that Christer Rindebladh (the old chief
editor) is not there anymore.

You sure he isn't there? Last we asked, almost all of the old team of DMZ was still there, but in the background, doing other things. I might be wrong though, as in most of the old team, but I know that many of them are still there.

Wonder if they'll consider having an amiga column when the A1 platform is fully out?

Well, my research in the matter was confined to sifting
through the "staff" page of the new Datormagazin ... I know
nothing of who is working "in the background" or not.

I believe Christer Rindeblad still works at the same publisher, but as a business developer - or whatever the english term might be

No sign of Erik Lundevall etc. though...

tually in the magazine they call Eyetech Itech ( i can understand that) but was was worse was that they seem to think that AROS was just a windowsystem.

But it´s good that they cover the amiga sometimes, DatorMagazin was a C64/Amiga magazine with totally rocking covers 1992.
When DatorMagazin becomes an amigamagazine again that when amiga has done a succesfull come back. Even getting a single Amiga page would be a big step.
Anyway it´s a nice magazin which covers alternate OSes better than any other.
