Why so? If AOS4 was discontinued tomorrow, I'd still have a copy at home that still works great (so long as the rickety A1-XE holds together). It's not like the OS stops working when Hyperion disappear. Hell, even Windows XP still works on one of my machines. And look at OS3, that had its last major release in 2000 and its last official update in 2002, but people still happily use it - and still buy it, possibly including your good self. The end of development doesn't mean so much, especially for a niche hobby OS like AOS, MOS or AROS since they are far less reliant on frequent updates for fixing security risks.
