I think you are quite jealous and only searching and creating facts cut out of nowhere. I am a developer myself and know what I am talking here. It's not like I come from nowhere - ~12 years on the Amiga gave me a lot of experience and indepth knowledge - after that ~7 years Linux. Even If they had a peeked in the code, even if they would use the original sources, even if they ripped someone off. I at the end don't care much, what actually matters is that it's done and done the right way.

What you are talking here all the time makes no real life sense to me and is only theoretical talk like you would go and have a virgin born a child for you. The same counts for MorphOS, they can't make an Amiga like system without having some background knowledge of how stuff is being done. I think you have some serious fanatical isses tied to your ideals and I pretty much welcome if you open the window and take a deep breath of fresh air every now and then and relax a bit.

By the way your sentence:

"A true clean room implementation would be done by one team (who would be familiar with the Amiga) specifying the API, while a second team, who should be people with no knowledge at all of the Amiga, implements it."

Is quite funny, it shows the public how far away from reality you are. I pretty much welcome if you DO NOT try your tactics on me because you will loose anyways regardless of what you try.
