I'm well aware of that (as are most if not all Commodore nerds).  I was 
referring to the guy that stood up Commodore USA to build PCs in a similar 
form factor to the original breadbox C-64.  He died unexpectedly and the 
company folded.  It would have likely done so anyway, but Barry Altman's 
untimely death hastened it.
