The only piece that wasn't developed on time and had to be changed was the filesystem. It wasn't EXEC or Workbench or anything like that. The story goes they had to go with a quick port of TripOS (renamed to AmigaDOS) because the people that were contracted to do the original filesystem wanted a lot more money to finish it when they found out they were dealing with Commodore instead of a small California startup.
