Sub-contrator, or contractor? Who do they sub-contract out to? A-EON?

That's possible. A-EON funds the OS development to support their hardware by paying Hyperion, Hyperion earns additional revenue through separate OS sales, Hyperion pays the programmers to work on the OS. Or are most of the programmers volunteer?


Based on the activity flow, I suspect that Hyperion subsists on A-EON subsidies.

Choose your term but by any stretch it appears to add up to inertia.

Probably not. The C code probably just requires some more horsepower than the code the legacy software was built on.
It ought to be possible to back port it to something more capable like the Vampire OR to something X64 based.


I would imagine that the PPC migration process was motivated largely by the 68k hitting EOL and performance requirements?

If so, did the refactoring process strive to make the OS processor agnostic?

Unsolved mysteries.

It just prevent someone else from using the name Amiga Technologies ...

To be honest, there was zero to no chance for Apollo / Vampire using the brand name Amiga, so there should not be any change in theirs plans.

@thread

I believe this link was added. I'm sure someone can confirm or deny that.
If so, you can incorporate what it says into your speculations.
