Amiga & AROS It's really been an Amiga week, hasn't it? As such, it seems only fitting to close this week off with some seriously epic news from the Amiga community. As most of you will know, Hyperion and Amiga, Inc. have been embroiled in a tough legal battle over the distribution and development rights of the AmigaOS, and all its associated trademarks. The epic news is that this situation is now completely and utterly resolved.

Your comment does bring to mind the fact that x86 is also a player in the SoC arena. Theoretically, Amiga could target a very specific x86-based SoC platform. However, for PPC or x86 to work the use case would have to be set-top boxes, netbooks or the like, as ARM is still the best/only option for the cramped interiors of smaller mobile devices.

Edit: Just did a bit of research and found out that there is indeed at least one PPC-based netbook out there:
