So when is A-Eon going to acquire Hyperion? ;)
A-Eon have acquired rights to quite a few bits of software but don't AFAIK have a habit of acquiring the companies that previously held the rights. Hyperion have rights to develop AmigaOS but can they sell those rights or are they legally bound to the company? I believe Hyperion contract out all the development rather than having software developers permanently on staff, a model that A-Eon is also using for it's acquisitions. It does seem crazy that A-Eon is at the mercy of Hyperion and their contracted devs for an OS to get the best out of their hardware, an OS that has only seen a 0.1 version increment in over a decade.

I'm far from an expert on these matters but I think there might be ways around it "reverse mergers" or whatever you call them etc.
