Legality of CoffinOS and Vampire Team
 
Err, the CoffinOS installer is 32GB???

That's several times larger than a macOS or Windows 10 Installation Image. What a bloated piece of shit!

Read the 1st and 5th paragraphs.

Is there a list somewhere of what is contained, so everyone doesn't have to download 32Gb to find out?

No idea... as I said in another thread:

Good on ALB42 for not allowing his software to run on Vampires.

Whatever mate...

It's called a software developer having morals; and boycotting the Crampire team who are engaging in illegal activities...

Other developers should follow suit in my opinion; until they actually decide to do the right thing / rectify the situation i.e. pay the developer / company of OS 3.9 for every copy given with a Vampire.

...but we all know that they won't do this; eats into their nice profits.

I don't really understand why you support this behaviour by the Apollo team???

What do you think would happen if EAB was to host Amiga OS media / Kickstart ROMs for everyone to download?

I suppose you're ok with that too? :rolleyes

Edit: I should add that one of their team, and main spokesman is a member on EAB i.e. grond.

I wonder why he never comments when this is brought up; or responded to the amiga-news.de article?

I understand about CoffinOS but I don't understand about the Vampire... This stance reminds me a bit of the dislike for the "Wintel" combo many years ago :D

And one should not condemn the Vampire because of some of its team members :blased

But each developer is free to (not) release her work for whatever platforms that she wants! :cool

Take care!

Well, it's the same team doing both so...

Exactly; and ALB42 has done just that.

AMIGASYSTEM 01 June 2020 09:31

Unfortunately also many users Vampire are not nice to people, I'm not interested in Vampire but this doesn't mean that my things should be misjudged.
Some time ago I reviewed my AROS One on HERE on forum apollo-core, AROS One can be adapted without problems even on a Vampire and I was treated very badly.

I won't discuss with a moderator who has shown his anti-Vampire bias over years of "moderation" and now even explicitly through commentary. Delete your moderator account and make EAB a better place.

DamienD 01 June 2020 11:40

You won't discuss this anywhere grond... it's obvious from the Apollo team's / your lack of response to any claims of illegality over the years.

As you can see from the amiga-news.de article; there is evidence from numerous people that they recieved a CF card with preinstalled Coffin OS from Gunnar von Boehn himself when purchasing their Vampire computer @ Amiga 34:

But in the days following "Amiga 34", where the 'Vampire Standalone' variant was sold to endusers for the first time, an increasing number of users reported on a1k.org that they had recieved a CF card with preinstalled Coffin OS from Gunnar von Boehn himself when purchasing their Vampire computer (screenshots (German): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
So why don't you put your big boy pants on and explain the situation, if the above is untrue?

If your team made a mistake then apologise and rectify the situation. Simple!!!

I have much better a idea; how about I permanently ban you (plus any other Vampire team members) and make EAB a better place...

sean_sk 01 June 2020 11:48

I think you'll find that their attention is shifting away from Coffin and onto AROS as the OS distribution of choice, as they are now supporting it's development. I think time should be allowed to see if this focus shift continues and if it does, then perhaps re-asses opinions.

Sure, and as I already said:

Hey people, be gentle with the apollo team. After all, if they remove everything that's pirated from their distro, what will remain ? It's understandable, they just don't want it to look empty :p

shuttlepilot 01 June 2020 12:47

In the end. it all boils down to choice ...

Developers choice to write their software or construct their hardware how they want, implement restrictions or enhancements to it as they see fit.

End user's choice to buy or use the product, to support the developer or not.

if you are going to bicker and complain then the developer might not bother to offer further support, culminating in the result that the end user's requests for fixes or upgrades would simply go unheard.

We are a diverse community, not a draconian collective. Let's not start pointing fingers and dialling up the heat towards people and the path they have chosen to take. We have seen far too much of that already over the years with casualties on both sides.

Let calmer heads prevail.

Thank you for proving my point.

DamienD 01 June 2020 13:26

Really appreciate you being a smart arse with your comment below, my post was direct retaliation to that:

Have you been banned? No, but if you continue I'll definitely make it happen... that's a promise :agree

...cheers also for not having the balls to explain the situation.

You're missing the point shuttlepilot.

The Apollo team are free to create whatever hardware / software they want...

This whole thing is about acting illegally as described in the amiga-news.de article.

They need to be pulled up on this and are most definitely accountable; if true.

They are selling a commercial product (at an extremely high price I might add) and ripping off OS developers in the process.

That's not on!!!

I'll repeat what I've already said to grond, though he'll just ignore:

My point is that you are a bully, not a moderator. Hence, you should stop being a moderator.

Hahahahaha, what a load of crap...

You or anyone else who thinks that; please feel free to contact RCK or any other Global Moderator with your concerns :agree

Stop avoiding the real questions being asked :rolleyes
