Amiga & AROS The Amiga changed the computer industry. It was based on a multitasking operating system, rivaled the graphics power of some workstations and was affordable enough for home users. Unfortunately, Commodore struggled to maintain Amiga's lead, and through a number of bizarre business decisions (refusing to license the Amiga design to Sun), went bankrupt.

Well, start to think the words for an historical phrase with which you should apologize.

We italian amigans are in direct contact with the developers of new hardware (they are italians too) at this site forum:

(google-translate it if you could not understand italian language)

We discussed a lot in various threads about these new hardware projects, and had lots of anticipation and clues about it all.

Seems true real solid silicon stuff!

I will visit Pianeta Amiga Show in Empoli, and then I will report to you all...

By the way just check "Pianeta Amiga" event site here:

It plain states this:

«During the show there will be the official presentation of codename "Samantha" project. A new PPC hardware platform. More details will be available during the show.»
