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.

What did the Amiga represent in 1985? it represented a quantum leap in what computers could do. It was a jaw-dropping proposal.

Nowadays, that computers has progressed so far, there is no point in doing a machine named 'Amiga' with the same technology currently available for PCs or Macs. We already have PCs or Macs, thank you. We need something more exciting.

A high tech dreamer with lots of cash should purchase the Amiga IP and present a new Amiga computer to the world that is so technologically advanced that creates a jaw drop just like the 1985 Amiga did.

Otherwise, there is no point in the name 'Amiga' any more.
