I think that all the "interesting" stuff (8-bit era) has been either
pawned off to smaller companies or just dumpstered.

i.e. companies like CMD might have the rights to chip XYZ whereas another
small company would own the schematics, etc.

The source code went to whoever eventually ended up with the "commodore
baggage" whether thats ESCOM, VisCorp, Gateway, or whoever...

Little bit easier for me I suppose... I just have to run down to the
stock broker and buy a few shares in Apple... ;)

Me too! On a sidenote, I once saw an ad for some old shares (worthless of
course) in Commodore (for people to hang on their wall, etc.)
