Is Jen Schönfeld (of icomp.de) about to exit the Amiga market over legal issues?

It appears that Individual Computers (makers of many very useful classic Amiga hardware products), may be considering leaving the Amiga market if the legal battles with Cloanto and Hyperion don’t end soon (or end in a Cloanto victory).

Here’s supposedly a message from Jens about it:

This email was from February of 2019, and he clarified when the email got out that he’s giving the situation until this coming February (2020) to decide what he will do:

Rare For A Reason – Deep Space By Psygnosis

I guess most of our readers out there know about the quality of some of the early Psygnosis Amiga games, in my opinion, some of them should never have seen the light of day as that is just how horrible they are. Deep Space from 1986 is one of them and I still struggle to […]

Pretty cool, isn't it?

Expansion Systems DataFlyer Plus 2.1

Way back in about 1992, I finally had enough money (ok, well, enough credit) to finally expand my Commodore Amiga 500 to how I wanted it. I previously had an A501 memory expansion module and an external floppy drive that my parents had bought me for Christmas the year or two before.

I may make a post in the future about the specifics of that card.
