OS4 programmers, they haven't been paid, so they won't be selling either I guess, only cause nobody has the money to pay them right now.


I don't know why people keep pulling this crap out of their hats, but it isn't true. OS 4 programmers have been paid.

More on topic: My honestly felt condolences to Pentti Kouri's friends and family... much too young to die.

I think sometimes what happens when a story like this (Pentti's passing) appears, is that all other speculation about the future gets hightened.
I expect we will have a few days of this to get through...

Come on guys, show a little respect. This is hardly the thread to be bringing up the usual Amiga Inc theories and/or speculation.
My condolences to Mr. Kouri's family and friends.

@Rogue

According to some people, you need proof for everything...
Did you get paid 2 million (US$) ??? Proof? If now how much?

Rogue - with a massive statement like that, non-that I have heard before.

I don't want to seem off target or rude... the question is made with respect. Some news feeds, rely on the statements made in the court cases docs. So if no body makes a sound, or posts news, some of us, like me will not know.

I don't know nothing about him, so I can't judge the person...
Sincere condolences to Pentti Kouri's friends and family...

R.I.P. Pentti Kouri and my sincere condolences to Pentti Kouri's friends and family...

Quote:


Dr. Pentti Kouri was the first Finn to receive a scholarship for the respected Atlantic College. After he graduated he went on to study economics at the University in Helsinki and graduated with a Master’s in 1970.

In the same year Kouri was hired to the International Monetary Fund at only 21. There Kouri undertook research with Michael Porter and together they developed the Kouri-Porter model.

Kouri graduated with a PhD from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in 1974 and has since been a professor in Stanford, Yale, Helsinki and New York. Today he is best known as an international investor.

I find it fricking obnoxious that some people in this thread want proof of one thing or the other, or that they argue against whatever. This is a thread about someone who has passed away.

Pay your respects or DO NOT COMMENT. If you feel the urge to comment about other things, start a new thread. If you want to comment about what I SAID NOW - start a new thread. This thread is about Pentti who recently died. Stay on topic, do not pollute this with your trivial crap.
