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.

Let me see if I've got this right...

The X1000 is a product that is regularly promoted but not actually on sale to the public yet... and you're saying that's NOT vaporware?

Commodore USA sell products to the public... and you're saying that IS vaporware?

I don't think that word means what you think it means.

In case it's a language issue (and not pure fanboy zealotry /ducks) here are explanations in English and Italian:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware
Vaporware is a word used to describe products, usually computer hardware or software, that were not released on the date announced by their developer, or that were announced months or years before their release.

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware :
Vaporware รจ il neologismo inglese con cui si indicano sarcasticamente i prodotti informatici (software o hardware) di cui viene annunciata ufficialmente l'uscita sul mercato a breve, ma che successivamente non vedono la luce
