Legal Just when you thought the Amiga world was finally getting its act together, finally making things a little less obtuse for outsiders, this happens. So, we have the AmigaOne X1000 coming up, a brand-new PowerPC computer, running the real deal - AmigaOS 4. In the meantime, Commodore USA - the one with the sketchy website - has apparently secured rights to the Amiga hardware brand, and is planning to release Amiga-branded computers running AROS. In the meantime, Hyperion, the Belgium company behind AmigaOS, who is working with A-eon on the AmigaOne X1000, claims this is a clear violation of the settlement between them and Amiga Inc., and has notified its US lawyers.

Amiga OS is the Real Deal. It is the legally contracted port of the Original Amiga OS. AROS is an Open Source copy and reimplementation of the Original Amiga OS and APIs. Morphos is some hacker's attempt with pirated code to rebuit Amiga OS in his image.

BS. What "pirated" code does Morphos have?
Morphos is entirely different from AmigaOS/AROS. It is just have Amiga compatible environment(ABOX) as one of sandboxes managed by microkernel.

ABox is an emulation sandbox featuring a PPC native AmigaOS API clone that is binary compatible with both 68k Amiga applications and both PowerUP and WarpOS formats of Amiga PPC executables. ABox is based in part on AROS Research Operating System.

Presumably you have some evidence to back up this allegation, right?

What's that, you don't?

Heh didn't think so.
