Multicore Parallel Processing Architecture : Comment 5 of 5ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 3 (nyxordnA):
Well, Androxyn, I heard it directly from a friend at Amiga Inc, yes. But it looked pretty obvious to me before that: Amiga personnel have stated more than once what the relationship between them and Tao is; how far it goes. And Amiga are already as busy as you can be and still sleep once in awhile.
Then too, if others were named, likely Amiga would be too, since they are in a good position to have some PR in the larger world right now. I guess mostly though when reading that piece it occured to me Amiga was not a good fit for this kind of undertaking at present.
Oh, that and I've seen a couple other places Tao is involved that have nothing to do with Amiga Inc. Thus the comment about "business". In fact, I spent a fair amount of time at the QNX2000 tradeshow over at Tao's booth, checking out the demo again, talking architecture with their great rep (sorry, forgot his name, but good at the job), and finding out more about their relationship with QNX.
Final comment: that "could be in the future bit" of mine came from the reaction my Amiga Inc associate elicited about the chip idea. By the time this thing hits the street who knows, lots of companies could be involved USING it, eh? : }
