I know nobody pays attention to the Amiga any more (I know I don’t), but I still found this bit of computer industry intrigue too good to pass up. Last year, Amiga dubbed QNX as their partner to create a new version of the Amiga operating system. Within the past few days, QNX made an announcement about their support for the Amiga, with screenshots and everything. Yesterday, Amiga announced that the next version of the Amiga operating system would use the Linux kernel. I’m wondering whether QNX made their announcement with prior knowledge of Amiga’s plans to dump them, in order to put pressure on them not to delay the release further by going with a different kernel. Interesting stuff.
