American Megatrends to End Online Sales of AMIDuOS Android Environment for Windows

Wednesday: March 7, 2018

NORCROSS, GEORGIA: American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, announced today that it will end online sales of AMIDuOS®, our Android™ Environment for Microsoft™ Windows™ platforms, effective immediately.

In addition to ending online sales of AMIDuOS, new email ticket support will gradually be suspended over the next several months. However, our Knowledgebase of archived technical support articles and user comments will still be available on our website indefinitely. No further product updates or bug fixes will be forthcoming for this product.

A Brief History of AMIDuOS, Where We Are Now

AMIDuOS was launched in May of 2014 and enjoyed robust interest both from the press and a lively group of enthusiasts and users.

However, Android has become more complex with each evolution, while newer apps have come into the Android marketplace along with updates and patches for Windows. All these factors have come together to present challenges in supporting this product across a wide range of platforms and different versions of Windows OS (7, 8, and 10), something that has always been at the core of AMIDuOS.

Because we could not provide the same, consistent and excellent user experience that our users have come to expect with this product, we made the difficult decision to end sales of this product.

We greatly enjoyed launching the product and receiving the support of the enthusiastic user community. We were able to develop one of, if not the best, Android emulator on the market. We would never have enjoyed the success we did with this product were it not for the support of our users.

In closing, we would once again like to thank the entire community of AMIDuOS users for helping make this software what it is; it has been a rewarding journey for the AMIDuOS team at American Megatrends.
