>>bplan does not let Hyperion develop OS4 for pegasos.
>Why should they?
Well, if they cared about the future of Amiga, they should.
Also if they want to sell as many boards as possible, they should.
But because they just want the same monopoly, control and high prices they had after C= demise, they do not.
I have not seen any other proof than that they want the death of competitive HW and therefore also the death of official AmigaOS (that would power A1.5 and SharkPPC).
>Hyperion makes nearly daily legal threats against
>bplan in public. Would you cooperate with such a company?
LOL! Get real. How could Hyperion threat bplan? With what?
But Amiga Inc could threat bplan, if their product is sold with unlicenced Amiga technology.
>>neither does bplan want AmigaOne licence (someone said it's even totally
>According to Mr Hermans you are only allowed to sell this "AmigaOne" with
What's the problem? I do not understand why someone would want "AmigaOne" licence if one does not intend to sell it with AMIGA OS?
I hope Ben clarifies it again, because IIRC, there is no limitation to the sales of pegasos motherboards for non-AmigaOS users.
But if the board is going to be sold with AmigaOS, as an Amiga(One), licences are needed, but only for those boards that are sold with the OS4 & AmigaOne name.
Also I've understood it so that if bplan let's Hyperion do OS4 for pegasos, it would become possible for some third party company/dealer to bundle pegasos+AmigaOne(name)+AmigaOS4.
The sales of pegasos would rise, but Ralph Smith would not be happy because AmigaOS means competition to MorphOS.
>You can't sell it with two OS (example OS4 and MorphOS). So it wouldn't make sense for bplan.
Also this is something that I have not seen mentioned by AI or Ben Hermans.
(well, I've been boygotting some long threads at ANN...) ;)
Clarification needed again Ben, I thought they are allowed to sell it with other OSs, like the AmigaOneG3-SE & TurboLinux bundle.
>>bplan does not let DCE support Hyperion in the development of OS4 for BPPC >>and for GREX
>DCE hasn't heard from Hyperion since last November.
Ah, you rather believe DCE, the german company?
It's just word against word situation then, except that a lot more people complain about DCE.
>On the other hand
>Hyperion spreads rumours about DCE (Grex drivers etc.)
Word against word.
I have heard things how DCE blames Hyperion for the problems with their Grex (when the issue is asked by dealers).
And Hyperion says it has not received any new HW specification from DCE so that they could see where the problem is.
And IIRC, those drivers have worked ok, untill DCE did some changes...
I rather trust in Hyperion than believe in DCE who does not even return people's accelerators, etc...
>BTW: Quoting morphos.de:
>"Q: Will MorphOS run on the announced Eyetech's PPC Hardware?
>A: We haven't got any specs and we don't expect to get any."
LOL! What does that have to do with this issue?
Or does that mean that MOS team has requested for A1.5 specs?
Or does this "we don't expect to get any" mean that they will not ever even ask for them?
Or does that mean that Eyetech should have sent specs without someone asking for them?
It just sounds like a flame.
MOS on A1.5 is not in the interest of MOS developers (because of their bplan involvement).
I think there is very little interest for Eyetech to support MOS at this time, especially because of the unclear situation of AmigaOS licence for the ABox in MOS.
If Eyetech supported unlicenced SW, they migh loose the deal with "Amiga".
In the past month or so, it has become very unlikely that I'll buy any bplan product.
