Acquisitions can leave companies that depended on the software that was just gobble up out of luck. And when startups suffer, so does innovation.

The Computer History Museum has released the source code to the 1986 version of Deluxe Paint.

Originally created by Dan Silva for Electronic Arts (EA), Deluxe Paint was quickly embraced by the Amiga community and became the de facto graphics (and later animation) editor for the platform, and by extension, game development. It was even used to create all the wall textures in Quake II.

Story
Tagline
F/OSS & IT Consultant - Beijing, China
Introduction
Got exposed to the Amiga-virus in 1986 and never cured... and now a developer and ambassador for the Open Source community by representing different projects, like Fedora, Mozilla, Maemo/MeeGo/Tizen, Mono, FSFe and others.

I am a multi-disciplined developer who has a unique blend of creative, managerial and technical talents. I am highly motivated and continually strive to broaden and deepen my extensive knowledge and expertise. From childhood I have been active in IT and have successfully turned my hobby into a career. Through my openness and involvement I am able to turn each problem into a challenge that needs to be tackled, aiming for a successful outcome. I can be technical, but have excellent communication skills as a team leader, a quality that I have demonstrated many times as an IT manager.

F/OSS & IT Consultant with working experience as a Software/Hardware Engineer and Visuals Artist. Have experience developing software for both Unix/Linux as well as Windows based software in different programming and scripting languages. Hold certification for SCJP (Java Certified Programmer), MCP (Microsoft Certified Programmer for .NET) and Object Orientation. Specialise in dealing with a mixed Operating System environment for development and system administration; using Linux/Unix, Windows, Mac OS X systems and other operating systems. I’m an active consultant for Linux/Open Source in China and as part of this I hold lectures on software development and Open Source. I’m also a Fedora FAmSCo member and assist the Chinese Fedora Community.

As an IT consultant I have many years of experience developing in different programming languages. I have been certified in both Java and C# (.NET) and have dealt with C, Python, JavaScript and many others over the years. Due to this I have an excellent understanding of the underlying concepts and paradigms. Learning another language would not pose a challenge. I have had responsibilities ranging from general software developer team-lead to architect for a migration project (from old technology to greenfield implementation and maintaining the underlying data model). Also dealt with interoperability and cross platform support (x86/Windows, Linux and ARM/Linux) of a large codebase.

Currently I am based in Beijing, China and the Netherlands.
