Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Iwin, the European hardware vendor trying to take the name Commodore for its upcoming line of Amiga-style computers, yesterday promised to confound the sceptics by releasing full specs. and details of how ii intends to offer Amiga-compatible machines without infringing Amiga, inc. copyrights and patents. In a message on the comp.sys.amiga.misc Usenet newsgroup, Iwin VP Rue Ann Mark promised the company would release "every technical information we have" in the next "two or three days". That information will include "internal datasheets, internal layout specifications [and] API specifications". And the company will make its machines, in both 68060 and PowerPC versions, publicly available at a special event in Germany for Amiga users to come and test the compatibility of their software. The date and time of the test will be released shortly, Mark said. Iwin announced its plans to offer Amiga-based computers earlier this week following revelations that the company wants to ship them under the Commodore badge. It is about to enter into negotiations with Commodore owner Tulip to acquire or license the CBM brand. ®
