Amiga & AROS Always wanted to own the IP and trademarks of one of the most innovative computer brands in history? A brand carried by a computer which was easily ten years ahead of its time, capable of multitasking (in colour) with multiple resolutions displayed at the same time, while Windows were still windows and the Mac couldn't hold more than 8 pages in its word processor on its single-tasking monochrome operating system? Yes, Bill McEwen's Amiga, Inc. is selling the Amiga trademark and all associated IP. It's not like the guy was doing anything with it anyway.

Hmm, I think that most recent Amiga followers are not thinking big enough :-) Most ppl would like Amiga trademark being bought by the vapor company Commodore USA, or by AmigaOS owners - Hyperion.

In both cases however, the trademark would further go under.

So I suggested the trademark to the following two companies:

HTC - one of the strongest mobile hw brands
RIM (BlackBerry) - ditto - they even own QNX, and QNX was supposed to be next-gen AmigaOS base back in 1998.

I think, that in today's computing world, I would prefer someone calling a product line being an Amiga, than hoping that AmigaOS 4.x will have any significancy in future ....

But that's just me, and surely many amigans will not agree with me :-)
