I just wish they could give a ballpark figure about when 4.0 will be released. Like before or after may 2003? If they can't even say that then it will never be released in time for me still having interrest for it (certainly not before may anyway). I have absolutely no interrest at all to use linux on a PPC mobo. I already have a x86 box with better linux support running it just fine. If it's after may then I really want to cancel my AOne Xe G4 order as I would have absolutely no use for it before 4.0 is released.

Ohh well .. isn't there a NDA or something that I could sign so that I would atleast know SOMETHING about the status of 4.0....

*sigh*

>1. How do you know that it was Ben Yoris?

Because he told so on IRC. But maybe that was a
fake then as well...

>2. Even if it is Ben Yoris, why isn't he an employee
>of Hyperion anymore?

He isn't there anymore for a very long time. I think it
has adressed at ann.lu over 2 years ago.

1. How do you know that it was Ben Yoris? How do you know this wasn't someone else claiming to be Ben Yoris?
--

Cause that forums requires you to log in and he
posts there quite frequently. Moreover he confirmed
that it was him on IRC.

2. Even if it is Ben Yoris, why isn't he an employee of Hyperion anymore? Was he fired? If so, why? Perhaps that could be a motive for not telling the truth?
--

He wasn't fired, he left for personal reasons. He was
(and is afaik) still very friendly with Hyperion.
And... you're certain that he's lying... Why's that?

Well.. not Release.. but Launch .. It was on Amiga.Inc site..  A moment..

Ah here..  A joined message of Amiga inc, Hyperion and Eyetech.

So there is no mention of having working product but I really hope they have something real to show at their big launch at CeBit.  :-?

Relax guys, this message is being taken far too extreme.  It was a warning due to a french reseller claiming that AOS4 would be shipping in March, when it's release date would be announced in march.  A simple clarification to try and not cause a major situation later on.

AOS4 is a major project, and is near a year from completion at least from the way things look.  Don't expect anything else for a long time now.

Till then, please feel free to troll.

How are you certain that Ben would ruin his
reputation about Hyperion? He worked there and he
is still friendly with them. I wouldn't hold such a
release date to them, making an OS is VERY difficult
and  time consuming task.

Oh... That.  I usually take those grandiose announcements with a grain of salt, they announce Amithlon2.0 there too ;0

I guess I have no other choice but to wait and see.

Especially considering that this is arguably the largest AmigaOS developement project to date.

Heya

The fact that the Frieden brothers are staying away from this thread can signal something (because if it is an absolute FUD they - especially Hans-Jörg - react fairly quicky, on such a topic).
No speculations, it can happen, one of the things what developers usually omit is the integration time. Components are here, but there is a need for an additional logic to make them to work together, and testing, hups... So, usual thing. Mazbe the promises were based on these estimations,. that's bad, for us.

Well, I followed the thread.  The orignal post has been removed.

This "OneVision" has no data in his profile and his email address is bogus!

This does not appear to be valid, but FUD!
