OpenAmiga On the Lookout for a Logo
The website for OpenAmiga has been thoroughly rebuilt and now offers forums and a new look. The authors are now looking for a logo for the OpenAmiga project. If you would like to furnish or help work on such a logo, click on the menu button Compliance Logos.

The initiators of OpenAmiga have made it their goal to establish a standard for the Amiga. This standard should then make it easier for a programmer to port between future Amiga platforms such as Amiga OS 4, AROS and MorphOS, at the same time offering the user a higher degree of flexibility in determining which system is for him or her.
