...as well as KS? Its not only gaming thing, this would make it as true Amiga succesor, as well as some older applications would be able to run


For what do i need an older kickstart? "Older" 68 applications already run on Kickstart 4.x and OS4.1. JITted. (Mostly....).

Compatibility reasons. You are aware certain applications would work better with KS 1.3/2.0/3.1 kicked to RAM. And 0,5MB isn`t that much this days. Also, any Amiga emulator or ADF game needs it ...

In long run, just having JIT and RTG wasn`t enough.
Much more OS 3.x software does not work out of box

There is new market for "under powered systems", like these:

http://event.asus.com/eeepc/microsites/eeebox/en/index.html
http://www.asrock.com/nettop/index.asp
http://www.fit-pc.com/web/

This is good change to get more amiga users. Efika proved that it is possible to manafacture PPC board reasonable prize.

And for those x86 fans, hardware is not a problem there is and has been numerous possible boards to run A Os but not licence

Amiga Inc. still has a few options in the trademark line.

They still have a few options. They just don't have to call it "AmigaOS".

This is a typical point-of-view-thing - I'm running OS3.9/RTG-68k-Systems here since ... I don't know (OS3.1-heavy-patched and OS3.5 before). For yeeeears I never touched anything that was not able to run rtg'd in a system friendly way. I'm still in the process of migrating applications from my 68k machines to my SAM - and most apps run out of the box. (I assume a similar behaviour with MorphOS). Or vice versa: Apps that work in a RTG'd OS3.9 enviroment have a really big chance to work on PPC "Amigas" as well. So *I* don't know what *I* need OS3.1 for (or 1.3, 2.0). I left this way behind me (and, no, I don't play [old] games on Amigas - except Soliton and sometimes QII ).

I think your confusing applications whit games.

Programs that don't have bugs and does not hack hardware registers will work under AmigaOS4. Most of the programs from 1980's are simply too lame in 2009 not as useful anymore, I have tried some stuff from the fish disks on AmigaOS4, softwood database form 1980's did work for example, "last hope" worked, and some other stuff I can't remember.

That depends on your needs, my view is that it was more valuable in 2004, when there was no AmigaOS4 software, now days we can do almost every thing on OS4, whit the combination of old and new software.

Well plans changed, organically the AmigaONE's where a hardware upgrade for Amiga1200 and 4000; Amiga1200/4000 was supposed to provide the AGA chipset support.
http://www.amigahistory.co.uk/prototypes/amigaone1.html

But the original hardware did not work, so it ended up in the trashcan, anyway it was a horrible idea, way not simply put AGA chips on the AmigaONE motherboard.

AI's greatest crime was they never even put $1 into the fantastic Amiga community. All they ever accomplished was having their hand out asking for money and/or trying to twist the Amiga brand to mean something it's not. It should come as no surprise that the community that supported them would turn on them when the truth became apparent. Our investment partners saw this greed first hand in 2006 when AI asked for an amount of money that was outrageous and out of this world.

Now everyone just waits for the 404 error. The fat lady will not even have to sing this time.

The End

good that now is more clear

But if Hyerion really win and need now not pay money to ainc for every sell OS4 is not clear.its also possible that they maybe must give more money to ainc every sell OS4 to compensete the loss ainc get by not get money every sell OS4 Hardware.

So i think if Hyperion really win, they should put it in the message, that they need not pay money for every sell OS4 now.

So all is clear

(Obviously I don't expect you to comment! )

I always found your appointment with Ainc a bit of a puzzle.

On the one hand we have a company that acts like a shell game;

Ie: ACK Hardware, No added value to AA, minimal income from mobile games.

verging on downright fraud;

Ie: Coupon scam, changing corporate vehicle to avoid liabilities, Kent Stadium.

And then they employ you.

Ie: You have a reputation for delivering, honest dealing and straight talking.

I found it all a bit of a head scratcher!

They don't need to reveal that and may not even be allowed to depending on how the settlement was structured.

A settlement is a COMPROMISE. You can only "win" or "lose" (literally anyway) from a court judgement, which is not what occurred here.

The community, in common language terms sees what they got from this compromise (a.k.a. settlement) as a "win" because the OS is securely owned by the preferable party (to most of us AFAIK). There is nothing wrong with that.

And its true that its quite possible that Hyperion either paid a lump sum and/or has agreed to hand over a portion of every sale's profits. Amiga, Inc. has chosen it seems not to make any public announcement about that. They don't need to either.

Bottom line is that both parties are satisfied, thats the only way a settlement is reached.

Who's to say there was even an exchange of money involved in the settlement. Didn't Hyperion bring separate cases against Amiga Inc, Amino and Itec. Maybe who ever runs the show now decided it was better to let Hyperion have Amiga OS as per the insolvency clause than to sink yet more money into potentially expensive cases, where they had much more to lose.

You basically have that backwards, if you refer to court filings.
Later though, Hyperion accused Amino of fraud and the developers filed against Hyperion in the EU.

Initially...

Quote:
Plaintiff: Amiga Inc
Defendant: Hyperion VOF
Counter Claimant: Hyperion VOF
Counter Defendants: Amiga Inc and Itec LLC


Then:

Quote:
Plaintiff: Hyperion VOF
Defendant: Amino Development Corporation


The only dismissal I am aware of is Itec vs Hyperion VOF.
The balance would have been addressed in settlement.
Resolution of the EU filing - unknown, but widely acknowledged as merely protection for the developers' works, and not a true grievance.

Where did ESCOM, and Viscorp get AGA chips?

"Inside out" and "Boxer"

@NutsAboutAmiga

Escom probably had no problem getting production restarted in 1995.
Viscorp (and the rest) probably used the 1000s of chips that were produced
but never put on any motherboard.
Today it's probably too expensive to restart production of real AGA chips.
Doing it it the minimig way is much much cheaper.

Btw isn't the chipset still owned by Amiga Inc.?
