Good read. Very interesting.
I wonder what could have really happened had they managed the buy-out. It seems that there were solid manufacturing approaches, as well as strong market approaches, in place, which could have seen a new product released very quickly.
If that were the case, then what would it have done to the likes of Sony Playstation and MS XBox? Would Sony and MS have considered entering the console arena if DP & Co had released both a new, RISC-based home computer, and an equivalent console approach? Would Linux have taken off the way it did if there was still an Amiga taking up a chunk of the market?
Shame we'll never know.....
