|In reply to Comment 13 (Ben Hermans/Hyperion):|
Mr Hermans, may I ask you a question?
Your Point for strict licensing is piracy.Ok, i can understand this, but..
Do you realy think that if someone wants to run AOS on a non licensed POP Board,
He isn`t able to do that? Or do you believe that Hyperion is able to do the supperdupperhyper Protection code?
(I am not daubting on Hyperions abilities,but you know, release a protection system today, it`ll be cracked tomorrow)
Beside the animousities between Bplan and Hyperion, there is another Pop Board Producer which made a clear statment:
" If I can make AOS4 run on this, I'll contribute my sources/drivers, if not, well, one board is better than none, eh? Barbie will NOT be licensing AOS, we don't deal with software companies, it's not our job to chase down OS developers"
you see? There are other interesting boards on the way now, but stucking on one board is not that good IMHO,
and as AI often said they are a Software, not a Hardware company , I am a bit confused about that.
And if piracy is the Problem, wouldn`t it better to make something like an external dongle (usb perhaps)
to protect the system? So it will be easier to get AOS 4 running on more Plattforms, and Hyperion will sell more copies of OS 4.0
One thing at least (It seems quit needfull these days ;-)
Yes I am a Pegasos/Mos fan, No this has nothing to do with flaming, it is a serious question, as i made my own thoughts about this, and i really cannot understand this policy. BTW sorry fot the bad english ;-)
