"I really have nothing against OS4 and if Ben would have been a nice cheery developer on here, instead of being himself, I may have given thought to buying it. Of course Eyetech's prices would have bitch slap me back into reality. ;-)"
Being a long time lurker in this forum (and to lazy to come up with a nick), I've quite often been pissed off by your seemingly stupid remarks, but sometimes you do have a point, but we all would benefit if you managed to put your point forwards without inviting to a flamefest.
Anyways, your remarks about Eyetech's pricing of the A1 made me think:
The A1 and Peggy are quite similar, so why the big difference in pricing? If, and this is only speculating, the difference is mainly due to Ainc's licensing fee then they've really shot theirselves in the leg. I can't see why any other company would want to have OS4 (yes, that's AOS4 3seas ;) if it meant such a huge increase of the price (higher price -> less units sold). And that would hurt Hyperion (the *real* AmigaInc IMO) since OS4 then wouldn't spread as wide as it has the potential to.
This is just me rambling about. I'd like to hear if anybody knows anything of the licencing policy or if it's under NDA.
It'll however be interesting to watch the pricing of Peggy2 if Bill gets a license from the other Bill.
About your remarks about Ben. He may come thru as a bit harsh here at ann.lu, especially when answering people he belives is spreading FUD, but I had the pleasure of hearing (and seeing) him in Sweden, and that was really a pleasant surprise. He was funny and very extrovert and make a really good and serious impression. The old rule of life applies. Treat people with respect and you'll be respected in return.
