Wonderful news!

At long last, there is a rather positive feeling when it comes to thinking about the possible future of AmigaOS.

Cheers!

Steve

I'm confused how Amiga can lose the rights to their own OS. They must have financial difficulties or something, I just don't see how the OS in its entirety (beyond OS4 - which admittedly Hyperion should rightfully own), would be handed over. Most bizarre. If I were Amiga, I would have SOLD the whole shebang, lock, stock and barrel instead of keeping hold of the parts that don't mean a great deal (unless their patents are bringing in revenue?)

I guess Amiga Inc took on Hyperion in a SCO vs IBM style lawsuit, and the party with deepest pockets (or smartest lawyers) won.

If this means that Hyperion will launch official support for the Mini Mac, then please sign me up for a copy of OS 4.1.


Hyperion staff have been openly critical of the merits of an official port to Mac Mini. I don't see why this should change now.

After all, the legal dispute didn't stop ports to Sam & Peg...

Yes.
Loss of Pentti Kouri was a blow.
Then:

Inception Group Real Estate LLC v. Amiga Inc did not help.

Nah !!!

It was probably just the bankruptcy clause in the original (Nov 2003) contract.

That's what I thought. At least now in the New Covenant.

In the Old Covenant he was using a Mac.

Gratulations, i wait bloody long years for it!

I hope the best for Hyperion and Amiga OS4.1.

My personal choice for using only Amiga OS4.1 at home was decided month ago. And it seems now it was a wise change

According to HyperionMP Amiga did not lose the rights:

Quote:

According to the terms of the license Hyperion Entertainment can market and distribute AmigaOS 3.1 in any form, through any medium etc.


So Amino/Amiga/somebody owns the OS and Hyperion got an exclusive license to 3.1 and to NG developments.

Often settlement terms call for limited information to be publicly released. It would not be surprising if we never heard anything more about it from either party.


Agreed... however, the statement from Hyperion is definitive and there is no indication of any degree of concession. The original court case basically went from a trademark infringement issue to a complete transfer of ownership.

Others have speculated that Amiga is imploding and simply phoned this one in. I have a feeling that they're right.
