According to a poster in comp.sys.amiga.misc, the IWin website, and therefore the last evidence of this monster hoax/scam, has finally disappeared. I don't even remember their URL, but all the while I was kinda expecting that Iwin's end would be different than just a simple disappearance without further notice. Like a law suit against them, a message on their site stating they've moved to Sibiria to hibernate, a posting with explanations, anything.

The latter numerical address _does_ work, and various things are still shown on their site. However, the gentleman at Merlancia, listed as an Iwin dealer, laughed and says he hasn't heard from them for more than 6 months. I figure the whole Iwin situation is an unfortunate occurrence of news briefs arriving here from a nearby parallel universe - one where Iwin actually accomplished something.
They talked a great line but even their final product listed, the "iAROS board" with PCI card and drive, wouldn't have really done anything that you couldn't accomplish with AmigaForever/UAE other than perhaps booting faster.
