Best of all if you read the original version as linked a little earlier, the spelling is an absolute classic. IŽ've cut & pasted one error I saw without even trying....

"Your web psotings and conduct also constitute
tortious interference with the business and........"

Psotings? wtf are psotings? Don't you just love lawyers.......as literate as potatoes.

/facepalm Why oh why? Without a signifigant OS, it's just yet another PC-compatible. I have to admit, it does look kinda sexy.

Anybody read Barry Altman's response to our fellow Amigans at amiga.org? He has strange ways of addressing his target group.

Looking at Commodore USA web: http://www.commodoreusa.net/products.html

First picture is fan art,

so called "Commodore Phoenix" is nothing more than Cybernet ZPC-GX31 with a badge from C64 (added with photoshop I believe). Look here: http://www.cybernetman.com/en/produc...c/zpc-gx31.cfm

And so called "Commodore Invictus" is in real this:

http://www.gadgetell.com/tech/commen...e-keyboard-pc/

The whole "Commodore USA" seems to be fake.

But those resold/rebadged PCs are the only real Amigas in production because of Amiga Inc's approval.
