"After years of false restarts, it appears there will once
again be a new Amiga computer. ... Amiga's future, however, lies
chiefly in its software, in particular its new Amiga Digital
Environment software, which can run as an operating system of its
own or atop other operating systems, including Linux and
Windows CE, McEwan said."
"The new lease on life may be too late, however, as Amiga
hardware and software lost their technical edge over ordinary PCs
and Linux, which arrived to capture the attention of those wanting
to buck the trends of the mainstream. Amiga enthusiast sites still
exist, but declining Amiga interest led prominent download sites
such as the Champaign-Urbana Computer Users Group to cancel Amiga
sections last January."
"McEwan said the company will introduce the latest version of
its Amiga OS operating system, version 3.9, by late December. The
new version looks similar to several other current operating
systems, including Mac OS X, Windows and Linux."
