Well. Go ahead. Having WindowseXP or some variant of Linux with new PC could give you some healthy perspective to real world  

agreed ;)

Question is, if they taste the real world, will they want to come back again to here? ;)

I never thought i would say this, but i wouldn't mind them having the IP, IF they let the work on OS4 continue (which i doubt very much as it is in direct competition with MorphOs).

I don't like Bill Buck but then i may not like the boss of the company where i bought my fridge, my television, my bike, my car and all the rest that i ever bought.

@ Dammy

I did.  I got rid of 5 Amigas in 1998 and went to see what I'd been missing.  Turns out, I was missing an OS and some games that don't work at all until I download "Updates" or "Patches".  I also was missing an OS that needed to be re-installed constantly.  I am back, hoping that there will be something like an Amiga again.

My take on what would happen is that the Pegasus and MorphOS would be relabelled as "Amiga" and "AmigaOS", and Eyetech and Hyperion sued so they'd rename their offerings.  I don't see BBRV effectively screwing the entire MOS team by dropping their OS from the product, and given the past relationship between Alan Redhouse, Ben Hermans and Bill Buck, I doubt they'll work together.  AmigaNG will essentially be rebranded Peg+MOS (not a bad thing in itself, I hasten to add).

If Eyetech and Hyperion win the "name" lawsuit, it will mean even more confusion and fragmentation (we'll have two separate and incompatible computers, both called "Amiga").  If they lose, they will just go to other markets (why be a sub-niche?) and the Amiga wil lose some of the best hardware and software talent we have.  I hope Hyperion will survive financially, they deserve to.  Overall, not a pretty picture.

Genesi had there chance to get os4 forpegasos but they blew it they might have products released but they do not have final versions of morph os yet .and hyperion are much more skilled at writing software than the morph os team .


1. Amiga Inc. had there chance to get Pegasos as their nexGen Amiga but they blew it!

2. With all respect I have for Hyperion and their work for porting games to Amiga and now the Amiga OS 4, I think the MorphOS team has the edge :)

> No "Dongle" required, you can run AOS4 when it comes ot on the choice of motherboard you wan

Oh, so MorphOS is available on Mac, IBM and Barbie as well ? Great news. I didn't know that, and I bet not even Genesi know that.

Sorry, but that was a rather pathetic attempt.

Pathetic attempt at what?

I want to run AOS4 on whatever hardware I have.  That would be good for Hyperion.

Wouldn't you rather have your OS run on commodity hardware? The more people using the OS the better your bank balance is, Bill Gates is a very rich man because of this.

For the record, I will be buying both an A1 and a Peg, but I won't buy an A1 until AOS4 is released.  I'm in no hurry to buy it, I can wait unlike some.  For me it's just a hobby, but I would rather be able to just buy a Pegasos I/II and run AOS4 on it.  This ain't gonna happen, I know that, but there is no harm in dreaming is there?

Regards,
Nik

Well. At least  I'm here and I know some others who are coming back if something potential enough materializes. I  expect there are many others too...  

Since Commodore collapsed I have been using allmost all OS:es available to X86 (OS/2, BeOS, various Unixes and windowses). And I got back (spring 2001) cause I was hoping to have New Amiga..  

Lately  I have been  having Windowse PC for work and Linux PC for network server.. and I still wanted something different for use as a personal system.  I really can't expect my latest purchase (Pegasos) to replace either of them right now (perhaps ever?) but at least it'll gives me chance to have something with personality.

Yes.


REALLY??? Then I only have one thing to say to
Amiga Inc: PLEASE GO BUST.

Hyperion rocks, God bless 'em. And...
in case anything goes wrong with that, then plan b:
God bless Morphos.
