Amiga & AROS It seems like only yesterday, but in fact it's already six months ago. July last year, we published our review of AmigaOS 4.1 running on ACube's sam440ep motherboard, and here we are, six months later, and Hyperion has released AmigaOS 4.1 Update 1. This free update brings with it quite a number of new features, and since I still have the sam440ep on my desk, I could test the new features first-hand.

Amiga inc. handed the Amiga source code to Hyperion and they develop the OS. Simple as that. (the fact that after a lawsuit Hyperion also ended up on top doesn't change that simple fact).


They handed over the source code so that they should developed it for AmigaInc. Then they hold it as a hostage for years.

So if I leave my car at the workshop for cars. And wan't it back when the car is ready. It ain't my car anymore.?????

It's HyperionOS now, nothing else.

"JohnSmith Repairing" might end up keeping your Mercedes 500SL but even if they become the new owners, the change in ownership doesn't turn the car into a "John Simth 500SL" It will remain what it is, a Mecedes 500SL.
The story is long and troubled but they settled this way (with Ainc signatures on it), And Aic. cannot develop the OS anymore nor license the old OS (not even something similar according to the fully published settlement paper) AmigaOS is legally in Hyperion hands right now, nobody can do anything about it, whether they like it or not.

Then it's not AmigaOS anymore

It's HyperionOS period.

Have you even read any of the court documents?
