This is quite literally the funniest thing I've heard all year.

Perhaps if Bill McEwen says it enough it might actually happen?

If it gets anywhere close to 1% of the desktop market in it's lifespan it'll be a miracle. That's if it's actually released.

What is wrong with that picture?

EAB is the best, but I was referring to the editorial links provided in the first post, rather than the ones were Billyboy were allowed to open his mouth

Bill again huh. Natural selection should have taken place when Bill was born, but instead, the "civilized" world allowed him to keep breathing air, consuming food, shitting, sleeping, until the day came when his un-natural destiny led him to Amiga.Inc, and now the trend of Bill's life continues as a waste of space when in the beginning he should never have been.

Bill, just please leave Amiga.Inc, save yourself the embarrassment of being utterly useless, and leave the job to someone with some honesty, integrity & passion, instead of lining your pockets and filling up your already oversized gut with food paid for by your lies and constant procrastination.

Maybe this worthless piece of shit will have another heart attack.
I wish some Europeans would gain control of Amiga rights, OS, etc, because obviously, Europeans love the Amiga and would further it's development.
Not to say there would not be shenanigans, but anything is better than Bowelmovment McEwen. I have just gotten hold of a PowerPC G3 notebook, and would love to dual boot OS 9/OS 4 on it.

It is better then OSX! Just check these stats I grabbed from the presentation


Number of root access virii
OSX : 3
OS5 : 0 (access levels?)

Winner, OS5 is much safer

Boots on amiga hardware:
OSX: 0
OS5:0

Draw, but we expect OS5 to score big here soon.

Game support
OSX: Doesn't boot amiga games
OS5: Runs old amiga games trough emulation

Winner, once again OS5

I tell you the truth, Blade, we all know Hyperion and Eyetech and the rest are British companies, Elbox and some others too.It does not seem fair to the Amiga user base that the people that hold the rights to what they want are also holding their plans hostage.

.....sigh.....

yet more over exaggerated bollocks from press / web releases!

I noticed that these small footnotes constantly point out the "Amiga / Commodore Curse" .... if these retards did the math, this curse has existed ever since Bill McEwan started working (if you wanna call it that) with Amiga.

Personally i think he should go back to being a secretary, but i doubt he was much good at that.... promising that dictation in 2 weeks, or he is pleased with the progress of something that will never be released or always failing to deliver the mail!!!

I don't understand where one person can shout total bollocks about OS5 (which if anything is nothing more than a white paper / red herring) can claim that its better than a multi million dollar OS, designed and developed by hundreds of people!

bah! its all false anyway.... nothing will come from something as NOTHING as amiga inc.

Hyperon FTW.... even if they are stupid!

From a marketing statistical view point.
