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.
That's not the point, the point is it now looks to be a quick cash grab before they go under. I'm not sure my meagre £30 would save them anyway, so I'll keep it my pocket for now!
