Can anyone tell me who this Garry Hare is??
Has he ever been involved with any Amiga companies in the past? The only time i heard about this guy, was when he was rumored to be the new ceo of AmigaINC...

@Bobsonsirjonny

Thanks for clarification, but I still am bothered with that word "later". Anyway I do hope this is a wonderful moment for Amiga OS and everyone else who supports it.

Wow this is incredible. Now maybe the morons who said Bill Buck was making up Gary Harre and the whole business card incident will reconsider what is the Truth and what is Fabrication

Lets all move forward together!

@ Mickey

Later this year == Somewhere from now until the end of the year.

This does not mean "late this year".

So why are you bothered with the word "later"

Before you get all fuzzy, read what the press release says: "Garry Hare, KMOS' CEO". Where does it say "Amiga CEO"?

Think twice before calling someone a moron.

Hey, back off.  Tom's a bit overzealous, that's all.


Overall, good news for everyone involved, wouldn't you agree?  After all, I'm sure that Bolton is very happy at getting paid finally.  Have you, Bolton?

Uhm. I don't remember reading anywhere how much was paid by KMOS to Amiga, Inc.



P.S. @Everyone, Please keep it civil and respect the opinions of others. Thank you.

@downix:

No doubt about it, but calling other people "morons" just for being sceptical isn't really good style. Besides, I don't see anything in said press release that hints that the business card story was true - it clearly says that Garry Hare is CEO of KMOS while Bill McEwen is CEO of Amiga.

Let's leave the whole Gary Hare business card in the past, shall we. I don't think many would disagree that Mr. Hare has had some previous involvement in some fashion in the past.
Let's talk about the current situation.

What is KMOS? What do they do?
I assume they also have licence from Amiga, Inc for the name. How does the sale affect any contracts?
Basically, How does this change the playing field?

Looks like the amiga.com website is down.  Is there a mirror of the announcement anywhere?
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(
