USER INTERFACE

    Amigaguide based user interface, allows easy unpacking and viewing 
    using a single mouse click.

    Extensive search facilities. Finds words in descriptions or readmes,
    and outputs matches as an index that allows direct viewing.

    Special support for the following categories of files:

    - Modules. Can be viewed and played from an index that is sorted
      by music style and subsorted by rating.

    - Images. Can be previewed in a database of thumbnail versions, and
      a double click on the thumbnail shows the full size image.

    - Games. Can be started using a single click from an index that lists
      all games that can be run on accelerated Amigas, with the best games
      on top. Degrading software started as needed.

    - Demos. As the games, they can be started using a single click.
      Demos with a quit function are listed separately.

    - Charts. A list of the most popular programs is on the CD, sorted
      by category.

    - Fish disks. You can find any of the programs on Aminet using the
      number of the Fish disk it can also be found on. All 1000 Fish 
      disks are part of the Aminet CD.

    - German files. All new files and those with German documentation
      have a German description.
