    X1000/Nemo had finally been sold out in 2015, 3½ years after commercial launch.



    I guess I'm using the wrong term for the X5000 boards sitting on a pallet. I struggle to follow such things as they only interest me in the mildest of curiosities and so many years pass.

    A-Eon Technology Ltd. and Leaman Computing Ltd. ("AmigaKit") are separate companies. Financials are as follows:

    https://companycheck.co.uk/company/06865537/LEAMAN-COMPUTING-LIMITED/financials


    Sure they are separate ;-) ;-) But seriously, thanks for the links.

    The A-Eon side is in £673,400 in debt as of 2015 (probably higher in 2016)!

    I didn't realize Brexit hurt the pound as much as it has!

    Wrong term and wrong time frame, yes.

    Is it just how much it owes Trevor, I assume he's the still the main financier. He admitted early on that the X1000 would never make back it's development costs but I though future products were supposed to pay for themselves, so logically the liabilities would increase.

    The drop in the price of the pound wouldn't have had much of an effect because production took place before the referendum and Varisys is a British company.
    Of course, it will mean that they pay more for the services of their overseas software developers.

    The drop in prices makes their products more attractively priced to overseas customers.

    Where it has more of an effect is Amigakit because more of their products are sourced from inside the Eurozone but Matt has always had to deal with currency fluctuations so nothing new there.

    I think it's worth mentioning that gutenprint is GPL software.
