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.

This is like the 3rd time you have posted that. AREXX did not come from IBM, and REXX was not a closed proprietary language, there were many 3rd party vendors which developed REXX interpreters in the 80s besides IBM.

Claiming there may be AmigaOS tech in OS/2 is pushing the limits of belief.
