Morphos Genesi has launched their EFIKA developer's program. The EFIKA is a "performance evaluation board based around the MPC5200B PowerPC system-on-chip from Freescale Semiconductor" The only thing you need to do, so it seems, is post a possible use for the EFIKA board on a thread on Power.org.

Can you provide me with any evidence that they have
"screwed over MorphOS"? Evidence from a certain web-
site with only facts from one side would definately
not work. Give me some solid evidence - court ruling,
recorded witness tapes etc.

Otherwise you should just shut your mouth.

If anyone feels "screwed" they should go through
the proper channels - file a police report and/or consult
a lawyer. Just spread FUD on webforums will definately
not help anyone.

morphos.org, refers to morphos.net, with the whole story.
If there's a more official site than those, I'd be glad to hear about it.

It would be FUD of course, if they were the only ones. But they're not talking about an isolated case, and although I wasn't directly involved, the actions of Genesi in return seem to confirm the stated sides of the story. The OpenBSD adventure was completely seperate from the MorphOS incidents.

And yes, in an ideal world, the truth would have been found out in a court. Unfortunately for the truth, cross-national civil lawsuits are highly unprofitable for whatever side involved. It simply costs too damn much; otherwise Genesi would've started lible cases themselves, right? (if they really didn't screw anyone over..)

And tell me, what would the involved individuals gain from spreading FUD about their intended platform?

The ONE developer left the platform. The second one on the list has released software since the page was put up. The rest have ask to be removed or have been proven wrong publicly - Wayne Hunt right here on OSNews for example. It was a blackmail attempt and so you see the FUD did work with some.

If you know so much, how come you don't?

The OpenBSD fiasco has been discussed hundreds of times. Go here:

Most of us have read it two or three times. Conclusion: Theo is a jerk and there are two sides to the rest. Is something bothering you? Whose disciple are you?

Genesi did start a lawsuit and won it against Amiga Inc. who claimed MorphOS violated their IP. Genesi won. Would Genesi have done this for MorphOS if they were not worried about it?

Piss off troll!
