Wired News meldt dat de nieuwe eigenaars van Amiga op 1 april (klinkt al veelbelovend ) een developer versie van het nieuwe Amiga platform presenteren. Amiga werd vorig jaar door Gateway verkocht, nadat het eerder twee keer failliet was gegaan onder Commodore en Escom. Wederom lijkt Amiga vastberaden te zijn om met een revolutionaire home computer op de markt te komen, nu nog hopen dat dit ook daadwerkelijk gaat gebeuren:
On April 1, at Amiga 2000, a developer's show in St. Louis, Amiga's new owners will unveil a new developers' machine, according to company officials, who acquired the platform rights from Gateway last year.
[...] As well as new hardware, the St. Louis show also promises a first peek at the new Amiga OS. It is expected to be based on the Tao Group's Elate operating system, a cross-platform, multimedia OS that runs on a wide variety of low-end hardware, according to sources.
However, Amiga officials would not comment on details about the new operating system.
"Since the demise of the Amiga under Commodore, I've counted 24 different product announcements that never happened," said McEwen, Amiga's CEO. "There were seven in the last two years when Amiga was owned by Gateway. I'm not going to put people through that again. I don't want to make any product announcements until it's signed, sealed, and delivered, and someone can see it, touch it, feel it, and buy it."
