Everything you say depends on those assumptions being correct. You might be convinced enough to trash them for it, but I'm not so sure. If what you say is true, I think we'd see more evidence. I think A-Eon would want recognition and they'd want to give OS4 a publicity boost. The news of Trevor getting on board would probably buy OS4 another year without a 4.2 release. Do you also think it's possible that someone like Ben Hermans could employ tricks to keep Hyperion going without a large cash injection?

What is A-EON's role then? Amiga free loan philanthropy? Amiga propaganda organizers and censors in charge of converting Amiga 68k users to PPC?
On hardware, same as ACube. I can't explain why ACube want to continue making new PPC machines, but they do.

On software, I think A-Eon recognise that while the hardware market remains fairly vibrant, the software scene is stone cold. That must be a concern for A-Eon as a hardware vendor and AmigaKit as a reseller. A coordinated effort is sorely needed to revive things. Hyperion aren't going to do it and nobody would trust them if they did. So A-Eon are trying to step into that role. Again, these are just my assumptions and I could also be wrong.
