Genesi leaves MorphOS to its developers
« on: January 15, 2005, 11:06:47 PM »
Here are some things we will do:

We will continue to support MorphOS application development. We will provide boards and the ODW to Developers that we see will use them best.

We will continue to support MDC and MZ.

We will continue to bundle 1.4.x with the ODW. The SuperBundle will be slimmed down and focused on just a few apps.

We will support a high bandwidth download server for special distributions of new MorphOS applications.

Whatever happens to the core team of developers - they form a company, they sell 1.5, they work together with the OS4 community, etc., etc. and/or whatever, we will not impede them in any way. There will be no claims related to anything done or supported in the past - that goes for Amiga Inc. too. Good luck!

We hope all the parties concerned will find a successful future. If one day we find a potential and profitable opportunity for MorphOS we will do our best to pull things back together.

It sure sounds good... Can we get a comment from the development team on the immediate effects of this?

Note that the following is unsubstantiated conjecture, and should be taken as such:

This part has me worried that they still haven't paid them and are now just cutting them loose.

Mac Mini port anyone?

I'd pay £100 for a copy.

OSX/Linux/MorphOS/OS4Emu all on one box. Heaven! :-D

Oh, and Windows XP native for PPC is on it's way soon too I've been told.

Interesting... I truly wonder how the Blue Butterfly defenders of the faith and haters of all things which go 'boing' are handling the whole mess.

I never say I told you so.

Or ... how to try to get rid of your obligations in a way that seems acceptable to people.

Wow, I didn't know that. I wonder if apple ever allows them to release it, but I strongly doubt it..

what's the source of this information?

looking att www.morphos.org and www.morphos.net it seems like the developers of MorphOS aren't very happy with genesis...

YES!! But why limit it to only the Mac Mini?
Also £100 is a bit steep since OS X will cost about the same. MorphOS should be cheaper than OS X.

Standard operating procedure for BBRV, well documented across the board, with many examples including myself.

Personally, I'm very glad to see MorphOS free to expand without the influence (and baggage) of those two.

I figured if I talked with OTR and messed around with PDQ, things would happen just after the REZ was CPD'd.  However, the MDA in the SuperBundle found on the CD are now TBDF.

Acronyms - Popular use items used to shorten the meaning of words down to just a few letters.  These are best used when the acronyms refer to items everyone knows such as WTF!!!
