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.

So something's not vaporware because it's been publicly demoed? And because you can see that demo online?

Well, sir/madam, perhaps you'd be interested in pre-ordering a Phantom games console: here's the video with the demo:

I accept cheques and money orders. ;)

Seriously, a public demo is practically a requirement for something to qualify as vaporware. And it remains vaporware till the day you or I can actually buy the darned thing.
