Disk Magazines

Disk magazines were electronic magazines which came on a disk. These were quite often distributed by Public Domain Software companies. Mostly the disks would auto boot, and so all was required was switching on and putting the disk in. Disk magazines often featured a selection of articles and ready to run software or music.

I use the past tense, however, groups are still producing disk magazines (on Amiga and C64), and with the internet magazines are often distributed in electronic form, so I suppose in a way Disk Magazines are the logical predecessor.

Deli News

Deli News was a series of newsletters from the 1990s about DeliTracker and Amiga music, written by Zeg (Richard Wagenführer) in German. They had some useful information about the process of the DeliTracker player, the formats it supported and various other Amiga related music items including software reviews and technical information.
