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.

Some of those do exist in other operating systems: BeOS/Haiku Translators are like DataTypes, only better (unless they added saving capabilities to DataTypes in 4.x). The localization features in OS X are not just for strings but also for GUI layout (take Interface Builder and go crazy on any Cocoa application). OS X also has a new scripting bridge that's not just restricted to AppleScript but allows 3rd party languages (like Python or Ruby).

I know, the Amiga had all that already in the 90s. That's why I used an Amiga in the 90s, but moved after the demise of C=.
