And a little more speculative: One could question whether Amiga Inc. actually set in motion each of the projects AmigaOS 4.0, AmigaOS 4.1, AmigaOS 4.1 Final and AmigaOS 3.1.4(.1) separately, or they just let Hyperion Entertainment run those decision process(es) on their own.


Quote:
Hyperion took on OS 4 entirely on their own, it was their idea, and they actually had to kind of goad Amiga into letting them use the name. Interestingly, there were even brief talks between MorphOS crew and Amiga to have MorphOS be the next Amiga OS. Sadly, the battle of egos on both sides crushed that idea. No one could come to a deal everyone liked. So Hyperion had to start basically from scratch, although they did have at least parts of the OS 3.1 sources.

Gary Peake was especially welcoming to us. I was surprised that only few people were working at their desks. Where were the others?


Ah, good ol' Gary Peake. Never met him, but he seemed a decent kinda guy. Definitely sorry when he passed.

We asked some people walking by, who turned out to be Microsoft employees in the next building!


Microsoft!? No wonder they failed! Sabotaged by M$ yet again!

(Sorry, couldn't resist. I'll return to the shadows from whence I came. ;) )
