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."

I just think it's sad that they came back. Now some kids who just started exploring the Amiga will believe their crazy hyping again and blow a lot of money on some t-shirts or sdk's or whatever... Speaking of SDK's, if they're not basind OS5 on Tao's Intent, what about all the people that bought SDK's from them earlier? Will their apps run on this? And if not, why come back now and not mentioning them? Have they waited two years and just decided that people have probably forgot all about it?
