AmigaOS 3.1.4 Emulation - polish eBook
« on: September 26, 2020, 11:57:22 AM »
Last month, I published a new ebook about AmigaOS 3.1.4 - Emulation. From the book, you will learn how to configure the system from scratch, how to surf the internet, install games, play mp3, movies, and much more! The target is not only the emulated Amiga!

YouTube Showcase: https://youtu.be/Cp98959bWsk.

At this time, the eBook is only in Polish. Let me know if you want such a book in English!

OS 3.1.4 is not licensed for use with emulators, so are you encouraging license breach?

"guest11527" aka Thomas Richter, lead developer or OS 3.1.4:

please keep in mind that 3.1.4 is sold and licensed for use on physical Amiga machines, not on emulators. There is an EULA for that. In case you wonder why this is spelled out - the problem has a name, and this name is "Cloanto".

It is exactly that: Cloanto claims to have rights for the emulation market, so it must be *very* clear that this is a product that does not address emulation. Emulation is Cloanto's market. This update, however, is for physical machines, so for a different market. It is highly unlikely that anyone is coming after you or a private user if you use 3.1.4 otherwise, but it is certainly true that Cloanto will come after Hyperion if this restriction would not be there and formulated explicitly. Whether you believe that I do not care, but it is precisely the reason why this Eula exists.

This license allows you to install or operate the AmigaOS only on a computer system that had a version of AmigaOS installed on it at the time you acquired such computer system, which was especially prepared for running AmigaOS through the use of a dedicated (flash)rom or similar mechanism or for which a legitimate version of AmigaOS was or is available.
