Well, that is certainly good news. Maybe the Amiga has a chance now...

I guess their plans for a big payout from c64man didn't pan out?  :roflmao::roflmao:

Is it confirmed that it's OUR Hyperion?

[Edit] That would explain why they released 4.1 FE. Either to get a quick buck before it ends or to give the community the last fruits of their labour before the end.

Will Trevor buy them now?

I wondered about that, too.  Not much coming up on the google...

To quote Hyperion:

Quote from: Hyperionmp
Who ever said that there would be a "return"? The cost of the Amiga litigation has put that prospect off for many years to come if ever.

Also, please no business advice.

We'll take our advice from people like Trevor, Matthew Leaman, Steven Solie (who came up with the "Hyperion Blog"), Jens S. from Individual, Michael from Cloanto etc. i.e. people and developers who have put their money where their mouth is or have actually contributed significantly to AmigaOS development.

Take a look at Trevor's recent Blog post and the picture he posted from the meeting in Brussels.

Those are the people that Hyperion management relies on for decision making.

And even if you think they are bad decisions, it is our money and we can spend it any way we want, yes, even on AmigaOS development.

Funny how that worked out for you. :)

if you look at this site:

there is this text:
"Hyperion and Individual Computers sign license agreement

Brussels, March 9, 2013

Hyperion Entertainment CVBA (Belgium) and Individual Computers GmbH (Germany) have signed a license agreement for use of Kickstart 1.3 and Kickstart 3.1 ROMs in processor accelerators for Amiga 500, Amiga 1000, Amiga 2000 and Amiga 2500."

Looks like they've a lot of fans.
Earth has a lot of things other folks might want... like the whole planet. And maybe these folks would like a few changes made, like more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and room for their way of life. - William S. Burroughs

Good job finding that. Next achievement Amithlon will be restarted or open sourced.
