Ex-employee of TAO Group talked about Elate and Amiga DE
In January of 2000 the new Amiga owner Amiga, Inc. announced a co-operation with the British TAO Group. Its product called Elate/Intent enabled the development of applications which are independent from the processor - which Amiga Inc. wanted to use to establish its Elate-based "AmigaDE" to as many as devices (handhelds, desktop computers, set-top-boxes).

Since 1991 the predecessor product of Elate called "TAOS" was introduced in the British issue of the magazine Byte. Meanwhile the arcticle also is available online. David Given, an ex-employee of TAO Group, took the corresponding discussion for reporting about the development of the system and to point out its strengths and weaknesses. He also talked about the co-operaqtion with Amiga, Inc.

The plan was that Amiga provides the customer support which the little TAO Group were not able to. David Given wrote: "We had a fling with Amiga pretty late on, and were the technology behind Amiga Anywhere, which nobody ever cared about. (Although we did actually get a few external users. The sheer novelty of this was hard to handle.)" (cg) (Translation: dr)

Introduction to Objective-C under MorphOS 3.10
Objective-C is an "object-oriented programming language that adds Smalltalk-style messaging to the C programming language". Due to the conceptual similarity to BOOPSI ("Basic Object Oriented Programming System for Intuition"), Objective-C now is used in MorphOS to simplify creating and using new (MUI-) classes. On the website of the MorphOS project you can "read more about the implementation details and how MorphOS developers will be able to use these new frameworks". (cg) (Translation: dr)
