Amiga & AROS The fabled Amiga X1000 has been spotted in the wild, in the homeliest of places--Station X, a.k.a Bletchley Park. "The AmigaOne X1000 is a custom dual core PowerPC board with plenty of modern ports and I/O interfaces. It runs AmigaOS 4, and is supported by Hyperion, a partner in the project. The most interesting bit, though, is the use of an 500Mhz XCore co-processor, which the X1000's hardware designer describes as a descendant of the transputer - once the great hope of British silicon." With thanks to Jason McGint, 'Richard' and Pascal Papara for submissions.

DISCLAIMER:

Remember that those suspects about Bill Mc. Ewen and Pennti Kouri and the fact they diverted assets from taxes are just suspicions and innuendo buzz.

These facts could be real or not, or just rumors launched by trolls.

There is no proof about it. Just rumors.

In any country people are innocent until proven otherwise. So take my words as just as they were, and that is "gossip" that I heard.

I just reported in public here on OS News some facts I heard from various conversations that took place during past Amiga fairs and events, and so it is just rumors that I listen from other people and reported here as a curious suspect about the whole matter.

I take no responsibility at all for reporting buzz from other people who had spoken in private conversations that happened in open space and in free air, during fairs and computer meetings, where unrelated people like me had just the chance of listen it all.

What you wrote actually sums up some of what I have heard as well.. And may very well be facts..
For sure Tramiel should never have been squeezed out of Commodore though.. Amiga History would likely have been different then ... There would have been no Atari ST atleast to compete .. :-)
