Alien prostitutes are investing in Amiga Inc. now. Not sure if they are male, female or both. Another round of funding, just around the corner. Amiga Inc works hard for you guys the fans!

What ever happened to these two super villains?

Bill McEwen
Mehdi Ali

Which one pisses people off more? The first one stopped MorphOS from becoming AmigaOS 4.0. The 2nd one fucked up AGA chipset machine release. A3000+ cancelled, A4000, A1200 delayed.

Mehdi Ali by far, imo
The time when McEwen stepped up, the Amiga was already pants anyway..
And with 68k being on the resurgence, his decisions are not that felt anymore. There is no 'red vs blue' thing going on now since for a couple of years.

Mehdi Ali and his son set up an M&A firm that still has a website but hasn't been updated in 10 years, Stone Ridge Partners. Ali is also gutted R&D and is responsible for the Sun workstation deal never going through.

I think there's a special area of the ninth circle of hell reserved just for Mehdi Ali and Irving Gould. Bill McEwan only dreams he could be as evil as those two were.

Bill McEwen is still involved right? Mostly in the ongoing law suits with Hyperion and also Cloanto. The latter assumingly purchased all/some IP & Copyright from Bill.
