An anonymous poster left this link in a comment here on ANN. The article says, Tod Nielsen, vice president of developer marketing, becomes the latest in a string of high-profile departures from the software maker. Nielsen plans to join a startup in the greater Seattle area. Taking into account that Amiga Inc are located in the Seattle area (IIRC), and Bill McEwen made a very specific comment (read more, fourth paragraph) at the Neuss show, this might - but not necessarily has to be - an indication of things to come.

Former Microsoft exec to join Amiga? : Comment 16 of 21ANN.lu
Posted by Brian H on 13-Jun-2000 22:00 GMT
I guess a question to be raised, if in fact he is coming to Amiga, is why would he leave a company that he still is a die-hard fan of? What would make a man like this jump ship and go to a small startup? Perhaps it's the challenge that he would be atracted to. Maybe there are strained relationships in the Microsoft camp. Maybe he thinks he will be out of work after the split up. If he's going to Amiga, I can promise you he will initially be making way less. You get into Microsoft stock options, and these guys are rich. Why would he jump to Amiga? Hmmmm.....
Jump...
