Precisely. This is the sort of stuff some pundits in other Amiga forums have lived for, for many years now tragically enough, but thankfully not so much on EAB. Plenty of popcorn elsewhere for voyeurs of this slow, drawn out melodramatic rubbish.

That is obvious - no explanation is needed for this one.

This is the part that I found "interesting".....and perplexing, to say the least, if I'm being completely honest. If Cloanto submitted to such conditions from AInc. just to get the sale done instead of negotiating better terms (even if it meant paying more money), then this just casts further doubt for mine over Cloanto being a professional and reputable company to do business with. Maybe Cloanto really did just get plain lucky with PPaint, and really are nothing but an Amiga one-hit wonder after all.
