Gateway got the Amiga stuff, but not the Commodore stuff. The two are once
again seperate companies. Amiga is a seperate business unit of Gateway , and I believe consists of 7 people. Apparently work
is underway on a 64-bit version of the OS running on the PowerPC. I think
there are a total of two clone makers, and Amiga itself has two models,
both of which are '93 era tech! Somehow it seems like a ridiculous risk on
Gateway's part, but who knows.

As for Commodore, they are owned by some Dutch company now I believe, but
am not sure.
