OSNews, Generic OSes Oh. My. God. When I read this, and browsed the website, my face went like this. Do you remember the Amiga? That fun little computer that was miles ahead of its competition, but in recent years has been dragged through the mud by one shady figure after the next? Here's a new one: Amiga, Inc., the one 'run' by Bill McEwen, has partnered with a company called IContain to slap the Amiga logo on a bunch of low-end, incredibly sad products. Whether this is another shady deal I don't know, but worthy of the Amiga? I don't think so. I'm not putting this in the Amiga category, by the way. I refuse to. Forget it. It's going into our generic category. Fitting. Update: As was pointed out over at AmigaWorld.net, not only are these nothing more than brandless OEM products with Photoshopped logos, the website itself is just a standard, unmodified WordPress theme. Oi. Doesn't instil a lot of confidence, now, does it?

I stopped reading Amiga web sites and moved on when BeOS R4 came out - it was everything I wanted the next AmigaOS to be.

Well, BeOS ist history now too, but by leaving the Amiga scene in time (still got a decent chunk of money for my A4000) and ignoring the disaster that happened since, the Amiga still lives in good memory.

Let's be honest: it died with C=. All the companies since have just been smoke and mirror announcements with next to nothing delivered.
