|Scanner calibration software ICS for AmigaOS 4?|
Volker Grabbe has asked Wolf Faust, the programmer of the scanner calibration software ICS, about the future development of this software. With permission by Wolf Faust we release the questions and answers:
Good day, Mr. Faust, as I use on my A4K Scanquix 5, I'd like to ask you a question. What about coming support of the AmigaOS 4.x from your side? May Amiga Inc. possibly have approached you because of your product to be integrated into the OS?
No. AmigaOS 4 is at least for me rather far away. Neither was I asked about it. And even if so, right now there's simply a lack of time for something like this. And even if there would be time there had to be something happening financially to view OS 4 as development platform. In the end the investments into OS 4 have to pay back sometime. Many of the developments here in the last time are extremly expensive and would almost be not financeable even in the best of Amiga times.
I didn't want to embarrass you with my questions yet I am curious about the future.
Quite clear: there'll be only developments that aren't Amiga specific. But Amiga users make profit of the expensive developments for PC/Mac. It would be inconceivable for example to realize the coming offer for transparency units only for Amiga users. The investments alone for the machine/working time are running into the hundreds of thousands.
But when I look at the little number of accesses by Amiga users to my website etc. I'm beginning to doubt that even this makes still sense in the long run. (ps) (Translation: wk)
