Multimedia, AV In the past in order to make good home movies one needed either a Mac or a Windows PC. There were no good video editors for Linux in the past. Today with Jahshaka and Main Actor the things that could only be done on a Mac or a Wintel machine can now be done on a Lintel machine as well.

MainActor was an AMIGA program. I remember because it came with my Villiage Tronic VGA expansion card.

IIRC, there were quite a few video editing tools. Some of the music related ones were really impressive for their times, such as those *.mod files which could have a whole song but only a few KB's.

Cool. It is nice to see AMIGA stuff still around. People still don't believe me when I say that the AMGIA has this stuff in the late Eighties early Nineties.

I believe you. I remember using AMOS many years ago. They were the good old days. Unfortunately the Amiga of today resembles nothing of the Amiga from 15 years ago :-( The Amigas back then were compact, speedy and simple. Want to add a HDD to an Amiga 500, slot it onto the side of the computer, same goes for memory as well.

At one point I was going to buy an Amiga 1200 but then decided to go with a PC.
