Greetings from India
« on: July 20, 2017, 07:24:52 AM »
Hello all,
       I'm a 30-someone from Pune. Never had the chance to use an Amiga PC in childhood, since only IBM compatibles made their way into the market here during the 80s and early 90s. But I had once made a keyboard program in GW-Basic which my friend from the UK ported it to his Amiga/Commodore.

    It's fun reading the history of computing and the role of Amiga in it.

Welcome! If you're not already familiar with it, be sure to check out Aminet as your first stop for any Amiga software needs.

Welcome. In these days of fast PCs, an emulator does quite a good job of demonstrating the Amiga experience.

My favourite A1200 supply was sourced from India. Much lighter and heat resistant than the CBM original. It served me very well, although it was not suitable for Power PC accelerators or 68040s (not enough watts). But I liked the low power reliability and mobility.

A500, Vanilla, A570, Rev 6, KS 1.2/1.3 Testbench system
