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.

Apparently this is the Commodore USA plan :-) ?


Who knows?

They claim they will equip these keyboard computers branded as Amigas, but still none has seen any real thing, just photos of X86 keyboard computers stolen from other sites.

At CommodoreUSA site they claim they will support AROS and their Amiga branded X86 computers will support AROS, but none has heard AROS developers being requested to create drivers for these new machines, and sure CommodoreUSA is still not supporting officially the development of AROS by donations of funds.

And I want to point to Mr Klu9 that THIS is a really casus of vaoprware firm selling vaporware products, just buying "the name" brand (TM) and announcing thing without showing any solid silicon ral products.

Also the fact that, in the beginning, CommodoreUSA was claiming on their site they are about to sell X86 computers good at running Apple Mac OSX too (this advice was immediately erased from the site then), made these people from so-called CommodoreUSA to sound really very phony.
