Amiga heeft bevestigd dat het Linux gaat gebruiken als kernel voor z'n next-generation operating system. Da's lullig voor al dat volk dat in de afgelopen tijd aan QNX heeft zitten werken...
The company signed a deal to use QNX last year, but now Jim Collas, president and CEO, has confirmed Linux is the favourite.
Part of the reason, according to Collas, is because of the enormous interest in Linux in the computer industry.
But another reason is that endorsing Linux will allow Amiga to run with a spate of applications almost straight away.
There Collas says in an Open Letter to Amigans: "After months of research and in-depth discussions with all of our technology partners we have decided to use Linux as the primary OS kernel for the new Amiga Operating Environment (AOE).
"I know this decision is a shock to many of you given the previous announcements and activities relative to QNX. This was a very complicated and difficult decision to make and I assure you that I didn't make this decision without a significant amount of research and deliberation.
