constant-factors

My articles on PD (Public Domain) and shareware software became a regular feature in Amiga User International over the latter half of 1988, and were now listed in the contents under the Constant Factors section!

The software I reviewed in these articles was often supplied by PD/shareware libraries who sold compilation discs of programs, without charging for the software (which would be against the principles of the Public Domain and shareware developers) but making a charge for the materials and service involved in distributing such things on floppy disc in an era where you either had to download such software from bulletin boards (and relatively few people did this), swap programs with a friend, or buy from a PD Library.

This article, from the October 1988 issue, covers a selection of fun games provided by various suppliers.

It came to light thanks to the kind assistance of Andy C. Spencer of the Retro Computer Museum in Leicester, England, and also one of the museum volunteers, David, who did the actual scanning for me. My thanks to Andy and David for their help.
