Distributed file engine to replace (augment) Aminet
One of the things I think that made the Amiga a success was the prevalence of shareware software. For YEARS, Aminet has been the soul of the Amiga shareware effort and by posting this, I do not in any way mean to criticize or lessen the effort made by the people behind it.
I also know that the Amiga is relatively far behind the times, both technologically and in basic mindset of the remaining users. One thing that's always bothered me though is the fact that, even with a web interface, the Aminet is still primarily based on antiquated FTP methodology. A methodology that I'm sure many of you who use PC's find as inconvenient and/or annoying as I do.
What I would like to see for the Amiga community is a "Distributed File Engine" similar to download.com which makes files available world-wide and even allows for mirrors around the globe to share the load.
If someone had the time or was looking for a project, this would be (IMnsHO) a great one.
