Amiga Inc has announced the release of their Software Developer Kit for Windows. This piece of Kit provides according to Amiga Inc, “the initial tools and examples for developers to create applications that can run on desktops, information appliances, set top boxes, PDAs, and game systems without modification. Amiga uses Virtual Processor (VP) technology to erase the boundaries that separate different hardware architectures. Once a program is written, the same binary will run on every platform that Amiga supports”. Matt Fontenot, Product Manger at Amiga Inc expressed the significant of this development for developers, as “Amiga SDK for Windows is an opportunity to deliver a development environment to a large community that creates applications and for that community to deliver applications to different markets with no additional development costs”.
