That was just one stupid example, there's plenty more.

Btw, searching for "cd" is rather pointless, it's common to not use it, and in this case just write "ram:bla", cd is "default action" for directories. As long time Amiga user, you should of course know this.

Yes, but searching for " cd " is easy. Searching for "<device>:<path>" not. But a moron would use "cd" for sure. :P Of course I know it and on linux it gives me often a *dohh* when I try to change directory without using cd command. Btw. search is still running.... a 040/40 is so slow.

At least until the case gets a final judgment, correct?

No, "AmigaOS 3.1.4 permitted to remain in the market for now".

Preliminary. Because the lack of evidence Cloanto would suffer an IRREPARABLE damage if this EXCEPTIONAL action wasn't granted. The merit of the case isn't in question. Yet?

Correct, but a final judgment could take years, if either party files an appeal of the trial court's judgment.

True, but "For Now" could be several years. What would be the practical reason to withdraw OS 3.1.4 from the market after several years of distribution? Hyperion would certainly be laughing all the way to the bank at that time.

No case is won in advance, but... Just like now: no reasons.

I think that's what everybody would do in such situation .

If Cloanto wins the case, Hyperion will simply have to compensate Cloanto for the (continued) sales of 3.1.4

OS 3.1.4 must sell 33334 copies just to cover the 1 million euros that Hermans claim that Hyperion owes him. I doubt anyone is laughing, and banks are probably best to avoid...

That sounds like a lot of copies. But I bought three myself.

30k copies seem feasible to me to be honest.

30k seems more like sci-fi for me.

Anyways, are Hyperion's web pages broken when using https?
Are customers supposed to log in and register over insecure http?

I keep getting redirected to http:// when I try to reset password etc.
Maybe time to pull GDPR on them...

To be fair, this site lacks https support as well.

This site is not a business, selling products, demanding customers to register for so called "free" updates.

True, although it does surprise me how many sites I see which don’t use https which handle user data.

Commercial or not, it doesn't change anything.

PS: RCK already answered this question last year. Unfortunately, "https" is still not operational...

The issue is with Hyperion, not this site
Hyperion's sites do have https, but it's broken and keeps sending users to http.
