Legal A little over two months ago, OSNews had a bit of a run-in with Commodore USA's CEO, about how I felt about the company and its rather dubious business practices. This led to a legal threat we laughed away here at OSNews, but laughable or not, a legal threat is a legal threat, and it never sat well with me that it was never retracted or apologised for. Well, that changed today.

As for the "demonstrating" part, could the third point ("I would like to ship something") perhaps be interpreted as a promise to send in a machine to the OSNews editorial staff for review? (as was done recently for another product - http://www.osnews.com/story/23969/AT_T_s_Samsung_i897_Galaxy_S_aka_... )

Thom isn't the kind of stoic man who sticks with "I said I don't like it so I won't ever like it." A good example is how he originally compared aluminum Macs to his IKEA frying pan, then buys an improved design little over a year later (see links below). If the Commodore should exceed his expectations, he'll change his opinion and be honest about that.
