AMIGA

Other computer makers have come and gone, but the Commodore Amiga still commands a place of reverence among tech aficionados. As The New York Times once put it, "Amiga loyalists (are a) fanatical bunch who make Apple (AAPL) partisans look apathetic."
The first Amiga, made by Commodore as a follow-up to its Commodore 64, hit stores in 1985 as a top-of-the-line personal computer. Its various incarnations sold extremely well in the United States and Europe; users were enthralled by its fast processor, top-notch graphics, audio- and video-editing capabilities and its proprietary operating system.
Over time, competition from Apple and IBM (IBM) cut into Amiga's share of the PC market. But a funny thing happened on the way to extinction: People held on to their machines, so much so that an estimated half-million are still in use. Websites and Internet message boards bring Amiga fans from all over the world together to offer advice, develop new programs and trade software and parts.
The computer's legendary status has led to a reincarnation. A-Eon Technology is a private company founded with the sole intent of developing hardware for the Amiga operating system.

A GM will have to do this, I don't have the necessary permissions.

Edit: Ah, I see it's been done!
