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.

Yup!

LOL! ;)

That is really the sum Amiga Inc. lead by Bill Mc.Ewen is worth actually...

AmigaOS now is own by Hyperion. Any residual intellectual property of Classic Amiga hardware are own by Acer and its subsidiary Gateway.

I wonder what is about to sell Mr. Mc.Ewen?

The unuseful Amiga Anywhere java-like application toolkit?

If only Bill Mc.Ewen had had developed well the AmigaOS and created a valid Amiga hardware 15 years ago, the entire community will had had followed him with whole trust...

But instead of giving new impulse and developing the existing Amiga technologies he had purchased, Bill decided to create Amiga DE/Amiga Anywhere and he lost all the time playing with that thingie.

What a waste of time, money, efforts and how many users abandoned the Amiga userbase due to this crazy Bill Mc.Ewen way to intend computer business... ;)

In the end, the entire community of loyal Amiga users turned off their back to Bill, leaving him to his destiny.

It is so sad. ;)

Well, that is so Bill Mc. Ewen decided to act to, and then, so he got what he deserved.

Goodbye Amiga Inc. and ADIEU!

Long Live AmigaOS, Hyperion, ACube, A-EON, MorphOS and MorphOS Team, AROS and Open Source community of AROS! ;)

These firms really reperesent the bright future of Amiga.
