This 1985 multimedia computer was owned and mismanaged by Commodore, then messed with by ESCOM, and finally bought by Gateway. It is currently (1998) slated for a much needed rebirth to recombine its innovative designs with more modern hardware. This is expected to begin in earnest in late 1998 and result in a new Amiga with new operating system version 5.0 in 1999. The fact that such an elegant system has not been widely accepted by the industry is just a bit maddening for Amiga fans.
