I nave had some contact with people from Amiga Inc over
Usenet and get information from some of the Amiga journos

talk about much and what they do mention is in riddles.

They've appointed a new manager and combined the two
companies to a large extent. I can't remember his exact

In a lot of cases Commodore shipped prototype machines to
various maufacturers. I believe they used Sun systems to
develop the original AmigaOS.

CDTV was aimed at what would become known as the set-top
market but it was a few years too early.
