This one's quite intriguing:

Quote:
27. Although Amiga anticipated that Hyperion would outsource some of the work on the development of OS 4.0. I came to learn that virtually all of the development was done by independent contractors. I also later discovered that when Hyperion entered into contracts with third parties for the development of OS 4.0, the contracts failed to ensure that clear intellectual property "title" to OS 4.0 could be transferred to Amiga under the Agreement, granting Amiga the right to purchase the source code along with all intellectual property rights to the source code of OS 4.0. Finally, I later discovered that at least one of Hyperion's contracts with third party developers set forth a work schedule that, if completed, would produce a product outside the limited scope of Hyperion's license.
It seems that Ainc accuses Hyperion of planning to release its "own" OS together with third party programmers using the source code acquired from Amiga that would break away from the limiting license.

And the winner is.....

The lawyers who will fight the case, make a fat wedge of $$$ out of both parties and make this case last as long as they can, this could last for years, think of all the cool stuff those $$$ could buy....

Holiday in the Bahamas, anyone...???

Amiga Inc Sucks Cock - Do you think there getting shity because they dont wont to see it on Classic Amigas only on there own hardware


But I cant belive Hyperion have taken so long - A basic port of Os3.1 to PPc should have been seen a long time ago and give AI the source possibly even meet the deadline

Heh, what's more interesting is that it confirms what I suspected back when Hyperion were first announced as the company who were going to write OS4. There's no way, I said, that a company that's done nothing but port existing games to other platforms could possibly write an entire operating system. And they couldn't; they got contractors to do it for them.

Wink A simple analogy...

... to summarize the story:
Quote:
A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him
strictly as a friend. This always starts out with:
"You're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way."
This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying:
"You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired."
Wait. I *might* have messed something...

This is not what they need to do, its silly and only shows how little clue thay have, to survive, grow and thrive, Amiga needs Hyperon and so should just shake hands and work together for a change, sure Hyperon were late on delivering goods, but Amiga can hardly claim to be the big sweet in this journey for the Amiga computer. Bill go shake hands, get Hyperon developers working with you toward a common goal, so what if they sponsor another Amiga clone, does it matter for now, several Amiga models (licenced in someway) have a better chance in multiple markets and its not like your gona topple MS or Apple so soon is it.
