Hehe! We simultaneously posted on the same subject!

Here's my thread:

Well Done Wayne and Amiga.org

Nice work.

I still maintain there is more to this than meets the eye, but hey, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt for now. Lets hope Amiga Inc and all concerned can work positively to move the Amiga OS/Platform forward again.

This clarification brings some comfort, I only hope that all the parties involved can work together to produce a workable platform with a future!

Here's hoping as ever

So very true. Well, not the try it some time part. It isn't so much fun.

Alas, I still think actions (e.g. shipping products) will be the only thing that will stop us from freaking out on every little thing somebody states. Hyperion have done a good job of demonstrating what action does. It builds up trust. Once trust is established all the FUD going around will be much less significant. Ship it and they will come.

Good to see the lines of communication open once again. I hope they (AInc and Hyperion) don't get too discouraged by the ridiculous comments some people make, and continue to keep an open dialog with the community.

For me personally. I appricated the 25 questions, the answers given and the clairfication that Bill has offered. I wasn't "up in arms" about any of it personally, and never had been. I have known that there were "issues" to be resloved; All of this has been great to show me that things are indeed moving foward for Amiga as a whole. I was very happy to hear that work on OS5 had already been started. Hopefully this time the predictions of being able to obain HW and OS4 by Christimas will work out. Now that would be the perfect gift. I can't wait!

No sh!t. Make things clear and understandable and then your words won't be re-intepreted, misinterpreted, analyzed, etc... Why did he even bring up the lawyer bit in his answers? It only made things more complicated. Plus the half-baked lies. No professionals would ever talk about those things.

What a messed up man.

This is good sign of things to come. Wayne has done a great service in arrange these interviews. Bill and Hyperion have to be thanked for their contributions.

Is there much there that is newsworthy? No, but there is consistency and simple clarity, we have needed this for sometime and this is a good time for it to emerge, as OS4 nears release and something is happening on the HW front.

The next few months are shaping up, slowly, into something special - I hope.

No sh!t is a good thing, right? Or are you saying that you haven't enough of it?

What "things" would you want him to make, sh!t? Why do you want him to "make" sh!t? Are you some kind of sicko? Please try to keep your sick fantasies to yourself...

The above is not to be taken seriously. The point I'm trying to make is that it's not so hard to have your words re-intepreted, misinterpreted, analyzed, etc... People have been doing it in the Amiga community ever since any official spokesperson ever made a statement. It's a well known phenomenon, which closet have you been living in?

Quote:

Because he was asked about certain legal issues, maybe?

Quote:

Well, he did say that legal issues such as these should've never made it to the public in the first place. At this point, all he can do is to try explain his side of the story with as little going into details as possible to prevent more unfounded rumours that's been going around as of late. Professional behaviour or not, he's seeking for our understanding, take it o leave it.

@pixie

The intent was to be excessively clear in my example. You understood what I meant by it, right?

Then why did he mention, in the Q&A session, the fact that he's given Hyperion thousands of dollars because they were in desperate need of them, money which apparently triggered the buyout clause? Or didn't it? Guess what, we still don't know, and that was all the speculations were about.

@falemagn

Not much changed with your reasoning from what I can tell...

He addressed two issues, one related to the security certificate and one related to the alleged legal conflict between Amiga Inc. and Hyperion. Both very much a part of the things people have speculated about. How could you possibly have missed this?

As for your other speculations not related to the issues addressed here, hopefully he will stick to his words and continue to dispel more rumours as they arise. For me, it's not very hard to tell that he'd rather not talk about these things in public in the first place but is more or less forced to because certain things has already been made known to the public in one way or another. It's a good thing that we now atleast get the chance to see things from their perspective, regardless if their way is the way we choose to see it or not.
