Amiga & AROS Amiga Inc, thought to be dead after stopping all communication with the Amiga community, have reappeared. The long spell of silence was broken when they answered 25 questions from the readers at Amiga.org. In the answers, the CEO of Amiga Inc, Bill McEwen revealed some information that once again brought back some hope in the Amiga community. Hyperion Entertainment and their partners have been busy working on Amiga OS4, which has been in available in pre-release form since April 2004. The final release is held back by the lack of suitable PPC motherboards to run OS4 on, but this seems to be finally resolved, and a final release is expected this year. The Amiga.org interview left a lot of questions unanswered, especially with regards to Amiga Inc's plans for OS5. So to get a clearer picture of where they are headed, I asked Bill McEwen to answer some questions."

Yes, a master of double-speak:

"The first SDK will be out and available when it is ready."

"I would prefer not answering this at this time. As we are ready to release more information it will become a much clearer picture."

"Wait and see. We have some pretty interesting plans with regard to Java."

"I would prefer not answering this at this time. As we are ready to release more information it will become a much clearer picture." (again)

"You support them in the method and way that we are going to support them."
