I searched on Altavista to see what I could find, and the following links which are interesting came up - it appears to be 'very' Amiga-like from the descriptions with a very Amiga-like OS - have a look at the following links...
retroplay.com/Mecenate/X68000/start.html
web.onyxnet.co.uk/John.Stringer-Oxford.onyxnet.co.uk/x68_sys.htm
www.computingmuseum.com/museum/x6816c.htm
While this seems to be entirely independent from the Amiga, it is still surprising how often the name "Amiga" is mentioned on the X68000 pages. Does anybody have any further details or screenshots of what the X68000 is/was?

X68000: Amiga-clone? : Comment 4 of 7ANN.lu

I saw one of thse X68000 machines two months ago, in a MSX users meeting (MSX is another japanese platform)
The X68000 is really impressive, I'm an Amiga-lover but I must say that the basic X68000 machine is much better than an A500,
at least for games; the arcade conversions are perfect (unlike the crap Amiga ports).
I saw some games, like R-Type (perfect arcade conversion, much better than Amiga version), and Sega games (Afterburner).
Shame that the X68000 is so rare, they said there is only one of those in my country (Brazil).
