Wait, what? Lionet kicked Frédérik off the group? That's a bit of a dick move.

I've not really had much contact with him back in the day, but lately he seemed to be a nice older dude with a passion for his original creation who had embarked on a journey to update it to a Javascript platform, all of which was quite charming. (Not that I personally would buy AMOS-for-PC as the Amiga is part of the whole AMOS coding deal in my eyes, but I guess others might).

Seems he's all about the money and is just seeing euro-signs everywhere now. Which is a great shame.

In the meantime, one other member of the AmosFactory team and I am shifting our priorities to the Enhanced E Compiler based on ECX sources and largely compatible with the original AmigaE. Hopfully things will cool off on the Amos front.
Yep, this is not a good thing at all. We shall see what happens, I guess.
