"Press releases on Saturday usually mean one thing: something to hide. This one, from Amiga Inc, is the exception."

"Under the hubristic headline "Amiga is Back and will change computing forever, again", the company announces the release of the Amiga Software Developer?s Kit. Costing $99, the SDK represents the first prop in the Amiga OS design platform for "multi-media content for multiple devices and computing environments". It incorporates the intent Java Technology Edition from Tao."

"Here's what Amiga has to say for itself:"

"The Amiga OS is capable of being self-hosted, and sitting on top of other operating systems. A single application is capable of running on X86, Power PC, M.core, ARM, StrongArm, MIPs, SH3/4, and others. In a hosted environment the new Amiga runs on versions of Linux, Windows 95,98/NT, Windows CE, OS/9, QNX4, and others to be announced."
