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.

I saw your similar thread was locked on AW.net, which I thought was a little wrong, but I don't understand your point, MorphOS wanted to get the 'Official Amiga OS' job, the Amiga Inc decided not to give it to them, but instead gave it to Hyperion.

What's your point? There was a job to be done, it was tendered to one of the competing companies. Maybe MorphOS would have been a better choice, maybe not, but the choice happened.

MorphOS 2.0 came out in 30.06.2008, Amiga OS4.0 was released 24 December 2006, you could argue that MorphOS 1.45 was a bit more complete than the various OS4's pre-releases, again maybe not. But the sad truth is both took far to long to come out.
