I don't think there is any point wasting money acquiring rights to the obsolete OS3.1. Acquiring rights to OS3.9 would make much more sense.


I think someone should check this a bit further. That AmigaGuide was licensed to Commodore, doesn't mean the license was automatically transferred after the bankruptcy. Perhaps the license was to Commodore itself and not transferable to any other party. That would place the software itself back firmly in the original developer.

If the copyright and other rights where transferred to Commodore, it now should be considered part of kickstart and workbench 3.1.
