Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

Not really, by the time of its demise... the Amiga was a stagnant platform with little in the way of technological value proposition. Which is why it went the way of the dodo.

You're trying to turn this into an either/or proposition, which seems to me a rather arbitrary framing of the debate. Commodore's bad management was probably one of the reasons why Amiga ended up being a stagnant platform, and thus saying it was "technically superior" by the time of its demise is a bit of denial. It was very well a manner of the two: bad management and outdated technology which killed amiga.
