Some have claimed that Aladdin 4D 6.0 is pure vaporware and the screen shot of the OS X Lion version is nothing more than a doctored photo. This quick and dirty preview video shows that the application is real but still in beta form.

Diversification Breeds Innovation.

A few of the platforms that Aladdin 4D currently runs on were born from the ashes of the Amiga platform. MorphOS, AmigaOS 4.x, AROS, Amiga Virtual Machine (Amiga Forever), and even cool FPGA solutions like FPGA Arcade and Minimig.  There has been talk on internet forums that these alternative modern platforms should some how reunite into one Amiga platform. This would actually be a bad thing and will not happen. Customers like freedom of choice and variety in their food and their computer tech.

We have already been there in the past anyway. Commodore Business Machines was greedy with the Amiga technology and did not share or license it. So we have today's computer market made in the Amiga's image but not based on the Amiga directly. If Commodore had licensed the chipset and OS then it would have become more mainstream.

The millions of Amiga sales Commodore did achieve is nothing compared to the exponential sales that compeating similar modern Amiga clones can get to. It just takes time and some marketing in today's very busy and diverse computer landscape. Apple's 100 billion in the bank and over 500 billion in market capitalization proves computer companies can return from near death and go on to achieve record sales plus exciting innovation.
