Amiga Manuals
« on: January 14, 2011, 06:28:12 PM »
For those of you not following the "OS3.9 Manuals" thread, I thought I'd let you know about my web site. It features the OS 3.9 manuals in PDF and AmigaGuide format.

I will be converting more manuals when I have time and adding them to the site, once converted.

Feel free to look around, and if you want a manual converting to AmigaGuide, use the "Email Us" icon to send an email, and attach the manual you want converting.

The web address is:-

http://amiga.maxiwebs.co.uk

Hope you like it, now spread the word!

Long live the Amiga!

I like the design of your web.
Curiously there are other web sites from PC users that sell per 10 euros Amiga manuals, I hope that these "rascals" don't take advantage of your work and illusion, offering free the Amiga manuals.

I checked the Workbench pdf and didn't see any copyright statements. Were the original guides placed in public domain or something?

*EDIT* Ah the installation manual:

Agreed to a point, but as Amiga Inc don't seem to be selling copies of these manuals themselves and they're only really of use to people who actually have the related physical product then I'd say there is no harm done.

Mind you, I doubt the lawyers will see it that way, but hopefully they'll have better things to do assuming Amiga Inc actually has lawyers now.
