AmigaPOP.8bit.co.uk is finally online!
Here you'll hopefully find all information you could possibly want about the "AmigaOS distribution policies and POP/PPC hardware petition". I hope the background information and FAQ will be especially helpful to clear up any confusion surrounding these issues.
If you have not yet signed the petition, then please do so now! Please help spreading the word by linking to AmigaPOP.8bit.co.uk. It's not too late to save our favourite OS and a unified POP-based hardware market!
In other news, I have finally managed to get in touch with the PetitionOnline.com administrators. The few abuse and sabotage attempts so far have been removed from the signatory listings. Not that any garbage would ever reach the recipient of our petition, but I understand some thought that it didn't look too good...

You are the one spreading FUD, Seehund. There's nothing wrong about the license, on the contrary. It will make cooperation with more hardware manufacturers easier and might even provide us with more hardware alternatives than it would have without the license.
Have you even tried asking Amiga Inc. about those concers of yours in order to clarify things? No, because your so damn sure about your own "interpretation" when you haven't even read the actual license.
I'm sorry Seehund, but what you're doing is per definition spreading FUD and when I see you telling this to others, it simply becomes too much. You're pissed off because you won't be able to run AmigaOS4 on the Pegasos and putting the blame on Amiga Inc. is plain ignorance. To create a complete product such as a computer with both hardware and software requires efforts from both the hardware developer and the software developer. Amiga Inc. has made their cooperation terms public and it's all up to the hardware manufacturer to decide wether he wants to sign or not. It's as simple as that and if cooperation can't be reached, don't blame the only one atleast making an effort on trying to cooperate. I can read Amiga Inc. and Hyperion making official statements that they have nothing against having Pegasos support in AmigaOS4, where's the statements telling us bPlan is willing to support AmigaOS4?
"But their terms are not acceptable..."
Tough. That's THEIR problem, not Amiga Inc.'s. Nobody else had a problem with them, only bPlan as always...
