Hyperion Entertainment Cvba in Sint-Agatha-Berchem (Brussel) was declared bankrupt by the court in Brussel on 27-01-2015. The appointed curator is Bert Dehandschutter. The company number is 466380552. The (main) activity of Hyperion Entertainment Cvba is computer programming, consultancy and related activities.

Hyperion is the company that developers AmigaOS 4.x. I've never quite understood how, exactly, the licensing situation was arranged - the owned the right to develop the operating system, but did not own the brands and operating system itself etc. etc. - but let's just hope this isn't the end of the road for AmigaOS.

This happens when your ego is bigger than your potential. Back at the time, there were talks between Amiga Inc. and MorphOS guys. Then Hermans stepped in and started his dirty games. Hence another split. IIRC, Hyperion was even in a legal battle with Amiga Inc., which Amiga Inc. lost.

So - curious, what happens next ... not that it would be much important for the "future" of the Amiga ...
