Amiga & AROS A few weeks ago, Novell and Red Hat jointly fended off a patent infringement suit thrown their way by a patent troll. The patent in question more or less came down to the concept of virtual desktops - and thanks to Groklaw, several people helped in finding cases of prior art. The most interesting one of all? A carefully restored and working Amiga 1000 demonstrated to the judge and jury.

Kroc, you are right. And I don't know, if you even know, that AAA chipset was done, when Commodore went under. But not only that - AAA was being regarded as "last of its kind", and Dr. Ed Hepler did Hombre chip, which integrated GPU into CPU and allowed parralelism. In 1993? Isn't it a little bit funny, that now Intel and others are doing the same, and are calling it an revolutionary idea? :-)
