OSNews, Generic OSes Oh. My. God. When I read this, and browsed the website, my face went like this. Do you remember the Amiga? That fun little computer that was miles ahead of its competition, but in recent years has been dragged through the mud by one shady figure after the next? Here's a new one: Amiga, Inc., the one 'run' by Bill McEwen, has partnered with a company called IContain to slap the Amiga logo on a bunch of low-end, incredibly sad products. Whether this is another shady deal I don't know, but worthy of the Amiga? I don't think so. I'm not putting this in the Amiga category, by the way. I refuse to. Forget it. It's going into our generic category. Fitting. Update: As was pointed out over at AmigaWorld.net, not only are these nothing more than brandless OEM products with Photoshopped logos, the website itself is just a standard, unmodified WordPress theme. Oi. Doesn't instil a lot of confidence, now, does it?

I wish I could say it was me - but sadly, no it wasn't. I only ever coded some lame 10kb BBS intros and some half-finished raytracer experiments (chunky2copper technique.) All good fun though.

The demo you have in mind is called "Demons are forever." It was producted by a German demo group called Dr.Mabuse's Orgasm Crackings (D.O.C.) It's still an enjoyable view today IMHO. You have a good memory BTW. :-)

(Sidenote: Dr.Mabuse is a character from a couple of Fritz Lang movies.)
