Read Fleecy's comments from the AmigaOne mailinglist below.
Yes Amiga is in control of OS4.0 - we have merely outsourced
the project management. I am in daily contact with Hyperion and a feature document and deadlines and timescales are mulled over in minute detail.
As I explained at the show, this deal is more about freeing
Amiga up to work on the SGA (Second Generation Amiga). AmigaOS4.0 was always more to do with getting a PPC based OS working on very specific PPC HW, and we were wasting a lot of time bouncing backwards and forwards. With the outsourcing agreement, the implementation has been moved much closer to the first piece of HW itself.
