Amiga & AROS It's really been an Amiga week, hasn't it? As such, it seems only fitting to close this week off with some seriously epic news from the Amiga community. As most of you will know, Hyperion and Amiga, Inc. have been embroiled in a tough legal battle over the distribution and development rights of the AmigaOS, and all its associated trademarks. The epic news is that this situation is now completely and utterly resolved.

Hyperion's big lie ...

This is far from any win. OK, Amiga users might get new oportunities, great. But the outer world should know, that Hyperion used all but side tactics.

Somy xy years ago, MorphOS guys, as natural followers of Phase5 systems, proposed to Amiga Inc., that MOS could be the next AmigaOS. Amiga Inc. wanted to control new OS though. Then Ben Hermans (Hyperion) stepped in, and talked Amiga Inc. into "special deal", which resulted into much delayed OS 4 release.

And the outcome? Now Hyperion has a right to AmigaOS? Come on? So - who's the winner? Liars. Hyperion liars. No matter what they achieved, they deserve no respect ...

I expect this message might upset many ppl, just because they do care about the AmigaOS itself only. But - the behind the scene tactics can't be denied ...
