(Yeah, but...it needed our help!)

Excuses again?

(Yeah, but...)

That's it. No more. Enough, Commodore!

P.S. Mine is very much alive, just like this scene and forum

Don't know about the name "Comodo", sounds like a toilet.

It's just a PC in a keyboard. Nothing more.

Nobody will be sued (for now). They have made a deal: http://amiga-news.de/en/news/AN-2010-09-00003-EN.html

Bwhahahahaha Hahahaha... Oh dear
They are really desperate for any kind of income. Ah well, the real pathetic bit is that people might actually buy them :s

And all this trouble for this advertising gimmick, to sell all the old All-In-One Pcs they bought from Cybernetman in 2007/2008.

They annouced this new PCs in replicas of the C64 & Amiga chassis. But all they have on their website are renderings (Amiga) or stolen C64 mod pics from 2003.

And what? A threatening e-mail to osnews? I'm pretty sure Hyperion will sue. They got the Amiga OS 3.X rights some month ago.

Yeah but from what a read they only have the rights to the OS not the name
Amiga Inc still keeps the logo and can sell rights to anyone who will pay
them and for Bill thats all it's about..

From what i've read they have the exclusive rights on Amiga OS 3.X. We will see what happens if Amiga Inc. maybe gives C-USA more than a licence to use the brand name/logo. Official AROS development support? We will see.
