The Register heeft een nieuwsposting geplaats over de nieuwe Amiga, die zal gaan draaien op Linux en voorzien zal worden van een 'very exciting Linux CPU'. The Register gokt maar meteen op de Transmeta chip...
The Amiga MCC, on the other hand, will be distributed as an integrated multimedia convergence computer as well as a standard ATX motherboard. Both will include the Amiga operating environment, an underlying OS and support for DVD, 3D graphics, and broadband and home networking features.
[...] Amiga will adopt OpenGL and it will use the latest Linux X Window windowing system. It will support Prixim's 2.4GHz digital wireless networking and will also adopt Sun's Jini technology.
Pentagram will do the industrial design for the Amiga MCC, said Collas.
Collas said that Amiga has adopted "a very exciting CPU" for the MCC platform, highly tuned for a Linux/Java software base. But he won't tell us what it is. In the past, he's said it won't be an x86 CPU. So is it a Transmeta chip?
