A few things have come up in this thread that actually make sense.
Since the original designers really were just a bunch of guys, whast to stop a coalition getting together and building a new machine?
We already have the expertise in the community that still exists, Jens, the Netami guys, coders, designers, Minimig guy, etc.
Maybe we should try to get people together seriously to discuss potential for pooling resources and trying to build something with the ethos, look, feel and usablity of the Amiga, but avoiding all the hassle of copyrights and IP?
On the other hand, if you are going to slap the Amiga brand on something, how about the IPAD, this seems to be the fad gadget at the moment!
