Well, the other guy, Kim "Dotcomm", was a known character to the german demoscene. Everybody hated him.

It was hinted at the SOPA thread that this Mathias might be the UAE developer and it might just be true, I just couldn't find any link online that would confirm so.

Found a link here:

Mathias «Scuz» Ortmann erschuf sich in seinen Jugendjahren in der deutschen Hackerszene einigen Respekt. Er war es etwa, der einen Software-Emulator «UAE» des in den 80er-Jahren äusserst beliebten Heimcomputers «Amiga» auf die Windows-Plattform portierte. Seine Affinität zu Computern bestand schon früh. Es war darum nur folgerichtig, dass er am Institut für Informatik an der Technischen Universität München studierte.
This confirms him as the same guy.
