Well, I heard no news about it untill on a lark I decided to go to Amiga's web page. And stumbled on the news
. I guess TheRegister
reported it and I missed it. They say they sold it to focus on "mobile computing". Well, they weren't even making the OS anymore, they farmed it out, and it took them 3 years to get the new version out, so it doesn't look like they were focusing on AmigaOS at all anyway.
Anyway, looks like Amiga is focusing on "Mobile Computing". But what are they doing? All I have seen is a few games that run on Microsoft PocketPC in an emulator, that don't seem to be available anymore. The last thing on ther news page
for the section that seems to be about the mobile stuff was updated in Aug. 2003. So what the heck are they doing?!
The only time anyone is going to care is if AmigaOS is ported to x86 but we saw how well that worked fo Be and BeOS now didn't we.
If AmigaOS was ported to x86 would you give it a shot? (assuming they had an emulator that worked for running old Amiga PPC based programs.)
