The past IS the future... Amiga Forever is the single best way to run AmigaOS today. Your PC is the fastest Amiga that will ever exist, and Cloanto does a wonderful job of packing the emulation technology, every AmigaOS ROM and Workbench version (most of which I've long since lost to data rot on my floppy collection), games, utilities, Web tools, graphics programs, most anything you would need, all in one place. While I still own an Amiga 3000, this is the usual way I have been running AmigaOS for some years now. It's cool to have the same AmigaOS environment, whether I'm hosting it under Windows or Linux. And there's nothing like Workbench on one of my hi-res LCD monitors... no "FlickerFixer" necessary!
The craziest thing about Amiga Forever is that, in a surprisingly large number of cases, you can do things faster running Amiga software under the Amiga emulator running on Windows than you can running Windows software natively under Windows itself.
This year's release of Amiga Forever is just amazing! The new Amiga Forever Player is really well presented and runs perfectly, I love it. I didn't think this could get any better and I'm pleased I was wrong! I want to thank everybody on the Amiga Forever team for bringing us this fine release.
What a fantastic compilation! Thanks so much to all who made it possible... it brought back memories of when computing was really fun. Worth much more than what I paid for it!
Thanks to you I was able to play this game and my two kids are absolutely thrilled to bits.
In addition to selling software, Cloanto sells fond memories. They have no doubt come as close as science has ever come to creating a time machine, the dials of which are set to sometime between the 80's and the early part of the following millennium. When using their amazingly easy to use software, it took me back in time 25 years instantly and I found myself grinning like the school boy I was back then, while rocking some of the coolest old-school games ever, watching some of the most groundbreaking and amazingly artistic demoscene productions by some of the most talented coders out there and even throwing down a little code myself! Thanks for the memories, Cloanto! Keep up the great work!
I'm thankful you and your team have produced such a reliable product that, for me, is more like a time machine. It's always fun to fire up my AmigaForever and relive those days.
The presentation is even more professional than ever and looks really great, surpassing your normal high standards! The new additions are fantastic. I didn't realize there was so much material surviving from the C= days.
You guys are doing an outstanding job! You have a wonderful product, best wishes and hope for many more releases.
Amiga Forever is a fantastic product and easily the best software purchase decision I've ever made. I used to love my Amiga when I was a kid and now, with Amiga Forever, I've fallen in love with the Amiga all over again.
The package arrived today and I have to say this is just an amazing version, with all these DVDs and all. I knew it would be worth the wait, but still it exceeded my expectations, so big thanks to you all!
It's really worth each single cent, a great product!
Very polished & very happy with the extra videos. Some brought tears of joy & sadness to my eyes. HUGE HUGE!! THANK YOU. To you and all the team at Cloanto.
Just wanted to tell you all THANK YOU VERY MUCH for adding subtitles to every video on Amiga Forever Premium DVDs. I'm hearing impaired and was worried that I couldn't be able to enjoy the videos, but I've been proven wrong.
It's pretty much seamless and flawless. THIS is the package that should "go gold" - and by that meaning 500,000 copies being sold. It would be great if PC (Windows) users could get a glimpse of the Amiga OS (3.9 is pretty much the latest legally available) and try it out. For those who are thinking - think no more - BUY THIS PRODUCT.
Thanks very much for your help, it's nice to have a company who are willing to help all the way, too often you find they don't, so it is much appreciated!
I must say I'm amazed how Amiga Forever works, I didn't realize there was such a program available and am so happy I found it.
Thank you for all your efforts and a remarkable achievement. I had thought that I must abandon my favorite and productive Amiga software - now you have allowed me to continue to use it all on my Windows video editing machine.
It enabled me to retrieve all my work done on the Amiga these past 10 years from my SCSI drives. I look forward to trying out the new version.
Thank you for a brilliant update and let me pledge my ongoing support for the future.
I wanted to say "thanks"... I can see that every effort has been made to make the transition from PC or Amiga hardware to Amiga emulation a smooth one... Thank you again for supporting long-time Amiga fans!
I get the warm fuzzies just looking at the interface of both the 1.3 and 3.0 Workbenches. PLEASE keep up the good work...
Please, keep up the good work. Amiga Forever 2012 is a work of art.

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy the new 2012 version! I am a Cloanto customer since 1995 (Personal Paint) and using Amiga Forever since version 1.0. When you introduced the Player I did not like it that much. Comparing to what it is now these are Worlds Apart. Most of all I like the new Systems section. It is like having my own Amiga Museum whenever I want. The CD³² usability is also a huge leap forward, love it!! Keep up this Fabulous Work (although I can't imagine what you could improve ;-))
Thank you again for an incredible product, and excellent customer service. I am very happy to have gotten this working with your help.
I did receive my shipment of Amiga Forever and don't think I could be more satisfied and pleased. I have recommended it to all other Amiga fans or potential Amiga fans that I am in contact with via phone, email or in person. I use it almost every day and look forward to even greater functionality and ease of use in the future.
Thanks for all your assistance. All web sites should be as responsive.
Cloanto's done a great thing here. Thank you.
Thanks for bringing the Amiga back to me!!
Great stuff guys! Keep Commodore Amiga Alive.
Great product. A trip down "memory" lane!
Extras are really, really cool stuff.
Amiga Forever 2008 is the best product I've ever used since I ordered it early this year.
Thank you for your continued support of the Amiga. I do think Amiga Forever is one of the main reasons why the Amiga is still around.
It's heartening to know that at least someone is actually taking care of the Amiga, Actually much better than Amiga Inc. itself!
Keep up the good work. Thank you for this great product.
Thanks for this great product :)
Great product, easy to use!
Your product has meant that I can use Bars & Pipes again right here on my PC to revisit some old compositions from past projects... which is a total Godsend!
Please continue to support our Loved Amiga... Thanks a lot for that.
I just wanted to tell you how happy I was with the support I received from one your techs... I had a fairly strange problem, which he went straight to the heart of, and fixed it in an efficient and timely manner. From the time stamps on the emails, I can tell that he was working some hours, and on Sunday.
I wanted to thank you for putting this package together. I love having all of the materials gathered together to facilitate emulation of this complex computer. Your work is obviously a labor of love. I have also enjoyed the historical components of the premium disc set and it is with great nostalgia that I watch the videos you have collected. The Amiga was such an important computer for its era and personally for myself and my own career in computers... Thanks for your effort in preserving these computers so that people like myself have an easy way to enjoy them.
I really love this product. it is so well designed - Like the Amiga, itself, really... The Amiga's legacy is certainly safe, in your able hands. I am very pleased with it all.
You and the crew are on almost a "sacred" mission. The Amiga really was the coolest computer - made by engineers (Jay Miner) and artists alike. I mean who calls their OS "Intuition"? It is my pleasure supporting you...
Thank you for the program. The best money I have spent. I have lived many old memories.
