The Boing! ball used to be a trademark of Amiga, Inc. (Los Gatos).
Commodore replaced it with the rainbow-coloured checkmark image, which likely was intended to hint at the capabilities of the machine, as opposed to what the competitors at the time (this being the black/white Apple Macintosh and the Atari ST) could do.
With Commodore gone, the Boing! ball was revived. It was after all the original Amiga logo, when Amiga was still independent.
