“The computer that ushered the era of multimedia in the
mid-1980s will use the Linux kernel as the core of its next
generation operating system.”
“Amiga International president Jim Collas said Linux was chosen
over Amiga technology partner QNX Systems, whose real-time
operating system was tipped to be the core, because of its superior
performance and its momentum.
“Linux is sucking up the mind share and resources of most of the
major component manufacturers and technology suppliers,” Collas
said in an open letter to the Amiga community published on Amiga’s
Web site at the weekend.
“I simply don’t believe we can gain enough momentum without
tapping into the Linux momentum.”
