Issue 8 of The Amiga Informer will be available by June 18, and oh, what an issue it is! Our staff of Amiga devotees have gone over the edge to bring you the biggest issue yet. I think you'll be impressed at what we've put together. You'll also be impressed to see just how good Amiga computers are at desk top publishing.
One of the features in this issue is an in-depth look at what the Gateway 2000 purchase of Amiga might mean for the future. We help you read between the lines of the May 16 press release to find out. You will also find exclusive photos and an article on the World of Amiga show in London from our new UK correspondent Adrian Pickering. Phase 5 demonstrated their newest BlizzardPPC and CyberStormPPC PowerUP boards at the show and we'll give you the run down on what was seen. We also have inside news on the public unveiling of the Jay Miner Society, sponsors of the Open Amiga Initiative mentioned by both Gateway and Amiga International.
Along with numerous news bytes and briefs, product announcements, and our developer profile, we bring you our usual columns. This issue's columns deal with managing your Workbench Icons, and understanding and using MultiUser Domains. In addition, we have a column that details a wide selection of programs that can be combined to create one integrated system for internet access.
We have several reviews in Issue 8. The email program Air Mail v4.2 is evaluated along with a serious look at Pretium, the personal finance management program. We also take a look at the old standby corrupt disk recovery program DiskSalv4 and the combat game Tiny Troops. In addition, we summarize the AGA Experience 2 CD, and two classic games; Dune II and Syndicate.
To round things off, we list a selection of dealers, user groups and fine websites in our Contacts section and, as always, intersperse useful tips throughout the entire issue.
