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.

It could be ported to any PPC hardware. Rumour has it that it already runs on the G4 Mac mini. It's just that Amiga Inc. won't give anyone a license to release it.

Amiga Inc. are either grossly incompetent, or they're actively trying to destroy everything. I'm not sure which anymore.

Edit: Pretty much all the work is done. The OS is finished, and the hardware is ready. All we need is for someone to remove Amiga Inc. from the equation.
