Genesi acquires rights to breath-taking killer application
by hesdeadjim on 10/20/2004 03:53 PM
We know that you all love, appraise and are fanatical about one of the single most powerful killer applications available for the Amiga platform.

Now, the single most wanted happening that all Amigans where longing so much for has happened. And we happened to be there.

Read the following press release to know more.

Luxembourg, Luxembourg, October 20th, 2004
Genesi S..r.l and Harry 'Piru' Sintonen are proud to announce that they have reached an agreement on the acquisition of the exclusive, worldwide rights to 'the absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform'.

This legendary program that clears the cli window when you run it that started on the Amiga will finally be coming back in a new version in 2005!

Harry 'Piru' Sintonen of Finland said, "I have been searching for a reliable company to continue the development of 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform' for some years now. After some false starts, I am pleased to have licensed the Amiga product to Genesi S..r.l, where the ongoing development of the product is now assured. Genesi S..r.l and partners have some exciting plans. I am looking forward to see their new product and extend to them my wholehearted support for their efforts."

Bill Buck, CEO of Genesi S..r.l said, "This is an invigorating new venture for us. We are very pleased to acquire the rights to this brilliant program, which for so long has been essential for all Amigans out there. 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform' is a program that clears the CLI window when you run it, unlike all others. It is the essence, the very spirit of how computers should be used. From the very first release of 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform' in 1995, many Amiga users have seen the raw power provided by 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform' with its unique concept integrating fast, reliable, complete clearage of the CLI in one package. All of these functions have been refined and polished into perfection and now is the time to bring this masterpiece back to the Amiga."

Genesi S..r.l has entered into a contract with the UK based specialist software firm Oken Ltd., which will be providing the porting work and implementing new features. Work has already begun to bring the sources up to date for the new AmigaOS operating system for the Pegasos computer platform.

Genesi S..r.l and Harry 'Piru' Sintonen
Genesi S..r.l was formed late 2001 and started off very modestly as a producer of Amiga Operating Systems and Pegasos hardware. In mid 2004 the decision was made to acquire the rights for 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform' to bring it back to the Amiga platform as the start of a new program of expansion to help kickstart the Amiga market back into life.

Harry 'Piru' Sintonen is an independent Finnish software developer based in the middle northern-southern-eastern suburbs of Kuopio, Finland, Scandinavia. Born in 1977, Harry 'Piru' Sintonen develops commercial software packages and provides custom software development services to industry in both Finland and worldwide. Harry 'Piru' Sintonen has successfully developed and marketed software packages for a variety of platforms including solutions for Commodore business computers, many products and custom solutions for the Amiga including 'The absolutely smallest CLS program for the Amiga platform', CTCPZap, Blizkick and others. Harry now concentrates on drinking and occasional bug-hunting. From the money pressed out of Genesi S..r.l he will buy a new sauna soon.

Oh man! Can't wait to get my hands on the new CLS. Let's just pray it'll be bundled with morphos1.5 and not sold separately!

    I guess it will be shareware

    Will there be a demoversion ?
    Or at least a LE version in the SuperBundle ?

    ... some version that will clear only the top half of the window,
    after a 10 seconds splashscreen, to show "how powerful it can be" so
    that people will agree to pay 10 Euro to get registered and DL the
    full version.

    nooo . . . CLS will be sold by Genesi . . . it is MOS 1.5 that will be bundled with it.

Pfff.. all press releases claim their software is the fastest and best, but where are the benchmarks to prove it???
Also, is the MorphOS version optimised for Altivec?

I think the source code of cls will be too spaghetti junction and hard to clean up and port, hence cls must be evil crap its not worth using or buying.

    Instead of going out and having fun, I've spent the last 520 weekends at home trying to perfect the world's smallest and fastest CLS, and now that mine is almost working, this happens :(

    No fair!!

yeah, whatever....

"smallest CLS program" my ass. I wrote one years ago on a duct-taped A1000 that was only four bits in size.

That's right: four *bits*. Nyah. So there. Uploading to Aminet now...
