"penalizing licensing scheme"???

That half of the Amiga community is now stuck in the difficult search for new hardware, complicated by a penalizing licensing scheme.

I'm not sure what you mean by "penalizing licensing scheme". Some people may think it's planned to be an expensive thing. I disagree that it's expensive, simply because it seems inpossible to get a license as Amiga Inc. doesn't seem willing to even discuss it at any price. Many inquiries to the licensing details have been completely ignored by Amiga Inc. which includes both those wanting to license OS4 for Pegasos as well as those wishing to design all new hardware and get OS4 license for that.

This situation isn't "penalizing", it's the equivalent of them flipping us off.
