My stupid PC breaks down... and I get back on the net and....
Didn't see this coming thats for sure!
Well, it's all a bit overwhelming... but from the sound of it, and from the positive way this is being put across by Hyperion I think this is a turn for the better.
A red letter day for sure

Does this mean that the whole AmigaOS is property of KMOS? What if KMOS will break the partnership with Amiga Inc? What if they will decide to distribute AmigaOs for other platforms?
I'm afraid..

That wouldn't affect Hyperions capability to distribute and continue to distribute AmigaOS 4 for the AmigaOne and classic systems. That is all part of the November 2001 agreement. There is nothing to be afraid of.

I guess that this has been said several times, and everybody nows all about it, but is the trademark "Amiga OS" out of the buisness and replaced wit "KMOS-OS"??? That is: Is it still a Amiga-name (if we leave the contracts aside for av sec.) platform or a KMOS (?) thing??? I got it that it is now owned by them... Will we see a boing-ball and "AmigaOS" in the left corner OR a KMOS symbol (¤) and KMOS-OS in the corner.
I am confused and I ask you confused people to answer this....

Well this is my thoughts on what the announcement could mean....

For OS4.0 and the A1 its business as usual and nothing short of Hyperion and Eyetech running out of cash is going to change that. We will have OS4.0 running an A1.

For future developments of the OS and hardware with regards to the Amiga community, I think this more in hands of Hyperion and Eyetech. If they so wish to continue development of future versions then I think KMOS would be insane not to allow that further development so long as it is profitable to do so. It may however change the roadmap of OS4 -> 5 as AmigaDE may no longer get integrated into the OS.

For Hyperion and Eyetech at worse nothing has changed and at best it could mean new markets (depending on KMOS future intentions).

As for KMOS we will not know what they intend to do until they decide to make an announcement. Hopefully sooner rather then later.

Hmm, sorry to sound rude, but what did you inhale lately ? You pointed out that calling card nonsense again, to which I replied that Garry Hare was not CEO of Amiga.


Still there were several people who where at that show who confirmed (on moobunny IIRC) that they did see him hand out this buisness cards. Now, if that really happened, it was not completely unrealistic for them to come up with the idea, that he really was the CEO of Amiga, isn't it? No matter if he really was CEO of Amiga at that time. No matter if it was just planned for him to become CEO of Amiga in the near or far future. No matter if it was *not* planned at all, and the card was just handed out for whatever strange reason. As those who saw the card, were handed it out, wouldn't necessarily know.

So now on one side there are these people who claim to have received this business card, or have seen it, or have had it in their hands (like Wayne Hunt). No one who really knows (Garry Hare himself or Amiga Inc.) have ever disputed, that this handing out of this business card happened, or that the card was fake. Amiga Inc. only insisted on Bill McEwen being still the CEO, which tough does not say anything about whether the card was actually handed out or not, or whether the card was fake or not.

The people on the other side who say the card is fake, was never handed out, etc., are the people which are least connected to the "incident". They were not at the show, they did not see the card. They have not had it in their hands. They don't know. A bit like people predicting a somewhat late final release of OS4 despite "having no clue" (not being betatesters, or OS4 coders) and therefore being criticized/attached loudly. For them "Bill McEwen is CEO" directly at the same times means that the business card story was wrong, the card fake, etc., altough the two things can be completely unconnected.

Here's a hires version of the infamous business card:

Has anyone ever got a business card from some confirmed Amiga Inc. employee? How do those look like?

Hmm. I just wonder when we get a patch to change the version string in the Workbench :) What about an option to compare it with a database on Internet and fill in the actual owner?

For those who like a mystery,

itec.com was registered on 22nd April 2003 - the day before Itec LLC bought the OS... could they be related... ????

The card I have (Randy Hughes) is rather different; different paper, the text is laid out differently, and appears much higher resolution that the image you linked to (no pixelation in the logo). I am convinced the image you link to is a fake.

I suppose that I could scan it in, but to be honest, that would require me to unbury the scanner.

I am now very much looking forward to the April meeting of Amiga.info, because Randy Hughes is supposed to attend. Should prove to be an interesting meeting indeed.

Has any public disclosure on the value of the deal been made? How much does an OS for 500 cranky users cost these days? Purchased from a company without an office and no lawyers?


Here come the trolls!

@realize aka magnetic

why do you even bother to visit here, you allready made it clear that i had nothing to do on #morphos even if i was a developer and an morphos /peg owner...
..admit it you simply aint happy with morphos and that you know what every other morphos owner got to know 3 weeks ago (regarding the future) ..

its not a secret that i sold my peg/mos and its not a secret that i am a red troll , i'm just fed up with people trying to recruit others all over the place and stuff like , i aint happy with morphos so lets get amigaos onto the same plattform etc.

i made a decision and so should YOU! , if you dont like it then u can either sell it and go another way or scream on morphzone or where ever u spend most of your time.

you attacked me and hyped up some stuff which i used all day long and i said it was crap, you said it was great! until u asked the rest and left...

we all do mistakes , we are humans but it became personal back then , just why some people dont like bill buck , so dont bother to come here and recruit people..

--

that said....

i am tired of responding to his posts but yes he was yet again half correct but then at the same time very wrong at the same time..

Contrary to popular belief hyperion does not own any money tree's or geese that lay golden eggs.

They do have a large bath filled with lime jelly however, but it's not valid currency on the earth.
