Amiga & AROS Amiga, Inc. has terminated the contract with Hyperion and Eyetech on 20th December, and has sued Hyperion for copyright infringement on 26th April. Discussion about this trademark suit can be read on AmigaWorld; maybe the community can clear up what is going on here, because I lost track long ago. Update: A detailed description [.pdf] of the suit has appeared. Amiga Inc. is accusing Hyperion of trademark infringement, but also of breach of the agreement the companies signed among one another. According to Amiga Inc., the agreement said that Hyperion would exercise its 'best efforts' to release AmigaOS 4 by March 1st, 2002. They obviously failed that date (AOS4 was released 24th December 2006), and hence Amiga Inc. says the contract was broken. Exhibits included.

Breach of contract

Strong case or not, why wait so long. Now that the OS is finish, apparently a hardware was found, then affect the sales with this.

This should have been done a long time ago.

No of course not, if they had done it a long time ago they would never have had the chance to have the OS finished for them! That is of course, assuming they can actually get their hands on said OS.
