Exactly at 11:11 am on November 11, Carnival starts in SoftMaker's hometown of Nürnberg - world-famous all over Germany.

Samba in Rio? Bah! Mardi Gras? Forget it! We have carnival speeches, we dance the polonaise, and we drink way too much beer. Unexpected side effects of Carnival become apparent nine months later and go by the names of Hans and Franz.

Harebrained Pricing in Nürnberg, Germany.
It is customary to do harebrained things on the day Carnival starts. Following this tradition, SoftMaker will slash prices of TextMaker, PlanMaker, and Nyditot Virtual Display. You'll be able to get many programs for pitiful amounts of money - starting at $11.11 or EUR 11.11!

This offer is valid for exactly one day, which is about as long as we need to come to our senses again and limited to 1,111 copies.

However: Carnival hasn't yet begun in Nürnberg, Germany but the offers are valid from Thursday, 11:11 am German time.

Official countdown clock

In addition, SoftMaker is proud to announce that they was selected by AMD:

American chip-making giant Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has an ambitious goal: Through its "50 by 15" initiative, it plans to connect 50% of the world's population to the Internet by the year 2015.

The centerpiece of this initiative is the Personal Internet Communicator (PIC), a Windows CE-based computer with a price tag for emerging markets: The full device will sell for just US$185 (~ EUR 145), and AMD's resellers will accommodate customers with financing and lease options.

The PIC offers not only web browsing, audio and video capabilities and instant messaging, but also high-powered word processing and spreadsheet capabilities - and this software has been created by SoftMaker: Instead of licensing Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, AMD decided to ship TextMaker and PlanMaker, the flagship office suite applications of Germany-based SoftMaker, with every PIC computer worldwide.

This means that millions of users worldwide will be able to work  with TextMaker and PlanMaker and use this powerful office suite in their native tongue. AMD has just introduced this computer, in cooperation with TATA Indicom (VSNL), in India, and other large markets will follow soon. Announced so far have been contracts with telcom providers in Mexico and the Caribbean.

Cheers ~ Arne
