Genesi
Perceived as an alternative to the official Amiga, the b Plan strategy promotes the use of a AmigaOS compatible operating system, running on a custom PPC board. The prospect is made even more unusual by the developers behind it. Genesi is a merger of two businesses - bPlan (a German company consisting of former Phase 5 employees) and Thendic France (a French subsidiary run by Bill Buck and Raquel Velasco, formerly of Viscorp). The cooperation has resulted in several elements of previous Amiga projects being incorporated into current developments. This has proved an explosive combination, resulting in a war of words between Amiga and MorphOS supporters.
