So, we know now why is there no real word from Hyperion for a quite
long time. Evert Carton case indicates the real situation there, now
this publication of lack of coders. Hopefully thing will go better
with some strategic partnerships.

Anyone from Hyperion can say anything about it?

What on earth are you talking about? We get lots of info on what Hyperion is working on (OS4.1 for Classics, a new printing system, a new OpenGL system using Gallium3D, not to mention continuing to work on OS4 for Sam460 & X1000, a new Shell (*), USB2, etc. Not to mention multi-core support for OS4 at some stage.)

And even if you were right about lack of "real word", I think you're be reading far too much into this. We know Hyperion has lots of 3rd-party developers helping with OS4 for many years, but it would not be surprising if some of them eventually moved on (or otherwise could no-longer help out). So I see this as simply trying to "top-up" their 3rd-party developers.

(* = a new CON: device if you want to be pedantic)

Well most of us are cluelessly why eXec is here as everything he posts is negative so I am hardly surprised anymore by anything he posts.

@exec

Yeah its some guy who has been a shareholder for a company for a number of years that has been silent for a while having no real active interest in the company at large.
One day he decides I want to go and do something else as I am feeling lost here. Fairwell.

Not quite the 'Hyperion goes bust' story you appear to be longing for.

@OlafS25
Also Hyperion burn on the fire all the heretics :)

@exec
Did you really read what Evert mean ? In short he mean "i was not-active for last years, i never was, and i just not have interest before, and not have it right now in it". So, its just nothing and mean nothing. Dunno why he even write his post. Maybe just for some clarification , but as usually some users found in any "leaving" words only negativite and "we all die, no future" :)

@AmigaBlitter
But you will not say "i am leaving" after you will help for 2-3 weeks ?:)

@all
Its just a one more call to all _really_ intersted persons, who can help os4 to grow faster. If you not just talks on forums, then just write mail to Ssolie (not ask him here, just write mail), and talk about everything you think is important.

Is it a proposal of a paid job? Or just voluntary activity? I guess it should be made clear in the announcement.

Agreed. Now it just seems like "Work free so we can sell your work!" kind of ad.

It's also a betatester call ?

Would be interesting to know as there are many thing that one can report (for example WarpOS support on some machine) and often it's not so easy to see this this and that fixed in a reasonable time because for each update we need to wait months/years

BTW: if so i vote 100% for kas1e, he already doing a lot of job and he is very dedicated to catch bugs/issue/suggests

Why would he wrote something like that , and even open a new account
here if there was nothing beside it? What do you say? Would you do that?
Open a new account on one of the portals and write a whole piece of text
that means nothing?

is that not standard on most amiga portals?

But I think Cartons email was not senseless, he only said that he now is officially out the game (and was for some time already)

@krashan, rose

I think if anyone will be in real interst, then he can just write mail to Steven, and ask for clarrification. I think there can be ways and for free, and for paid work. I just think that for paid work need to do something very good and important :)

I am will not do something like this of course. But its peoples. Drama, soap and so on. Everyone cry , "i need it for everyone", "i was important" feels, "i leaving/back and all that stuff :) Someone just need to make drama from nothing, and some amiga users always wait drama to discuss.

it doesn't say that though does it? It just asks interested parties to contact Steve and then go from there.
