Seehund. No one is preventing anyone from selling their boards. They just
a) Cant brand it as an Amiga
b) Cant claim AmigaOS compat
Until they have gone through the branding scheme.
Notice the "designed for Windowsxxx" certificate on decent PC clone manufacturers kit? Thats the result of a similar scheme.
The difference here is that AmigaOS4 wont be available shrink wrapped, its OEM only.
Nothing hard about it. Besides, surely the MorphOS story is so strong BPlan dont *need* AmigaOS so whats the gripe?
I realise you want to run AmigaOS on Pegasos for your own personal reasons ( your agenda ) but until X,Y happen Z aint in the picture.
Sure you can sell Amiga "branding approved" Pegasos if BPlan gets involved in the licensing scheme but also you would have to sell non branded onesalong side it and never ship AOS4 with it - terms of the OEM deal.
Big flipping deal. As far as controlling the marketplace is concerned, it doesnt - it perhaps even threatens the future of AOS4 rather than threatens any PPC board manufacturers business.
If you are waiting out for a PPC board that whups ar*e you want to be buying a good multiprocessor IBM. Then you get a decent UNIX (AIX) with it, great support for Linux if you want it and as much chance as running AOS4 on it as you have with BPlans current direction. At least it would be backed by a decent manufacturer that actually delivers, have real world support and cast iron build quality.
In the mean time the rest of us are getting to grips with our A1G3s and having fun.
You pays your money, you takes your choice. Its capitalism.
Beat on BPlans door if you want this to change, not on here or at AInc. The process is transparent.
If you have idealogical objections to the process well then - erm - tough titties. You have your right as consumer to go elsewhere and serve Amiga Inc right.
