Dan Wood posted an interview on his youtube channel Kookytech.net.

Quite intresting, and kinda sad to hear how his bid for Commodore ended.

"What might have been!"

Does he discuss CBM U.K. and the trademarks they never relinquished?

Was an interesting interview. It was a pity that they couldn't bring their vision of the future for Commodore to fruition, as by the sound of it they had very good plans on what to do and how to do it - much more than those who took over after the demise of Commodore in the mid 90s.

Back then i read about their plans on Amiga Format (or another British magazine like Amiga Shopper, can't remember) and i was one of those who really hoped for C=UK to succeed instead of Escom ad the likes.

While it was an interesting view, nobody was able to stop the new comer Sony with it's Playstation (PSX). CBM will have faced the same doom as 3DO and Sega. Nintendo survived because of it's handheld console and franchises like Pokemon.
On the OS side I'm not sure that it'll have evolved beyond game needs.
