Sources claimed that QNX, which was snubbed by Amiga president Jim Collas last week, is set to produce an alternative operating system for the platform. Collas surprised and astonished the so-called "Amigans" ten days ago when he announced the specifications for the Amiga platform, based around the Linux operating system. Since then, a concerted group of developers have been working to propose an alternative OS for Amiga, based on the QNX OS. Many Amiga devotees had expected Collas to continue developing QNX for the platform. In other developments today, Amiga said that Corel will write the Linux software for the platform, while QNX itself said it would port its operating system to the PowerUP PPC boards from Phase 5. ®
