Amiga & AROS Tedd Gallion, speaking on behalf of a group called the DiscreetFX partners, has sent out a letter to the Amiga community with quite an interesting topic: to buy out the AmigaOS4 and the Amiga brand from Amiga, Inc. The letter states that DiscreetFX and its partners have contacted Amiga, Inc., but that the company asked a completely insane amount of money. DiscreetFX and its partners now ask the community to contact Amiga, Inc., and urge them to sell the Amiga OS and its brand to DiscreetFX for a fair price. "Urge Amiga Inc. sell to us for a fair price. We will end the lawsuit, we will end the fighting., we will end the madness. If we were in charge Amiga OS 4.0 would be available today on SAM." Spelling and grammar weren't exactly a priority in the letter, so credibility is a bit dubious. The credibility has been more or less confirmed.

I was an Amiga owner, and I loved having my smooth multitasking and multimedia and games while the rest of the world lumbered through DOS and then Windows 3.x. Then I got treated to that ride of watching Commodore management screw things up fantastically badly while the highly enthusiastic and energetic fan base could only watch.

If the Amiga had been open, those worse than useless pointyhairs could never have sunk it. Amiga enthusiasts would have had matters in their hands instead of waiting for their Godot to do things right fifteen years too late.

R.I.P. mi Amiga.
