|In some extenct I have to agree with dammy's original point of view which was that this q&a session is more an amiga inc. free advertizing than anything.|
Sure there are/were some interesting things to learn about os4 from some of the answers in these q&a sessions but one really has to ask themselves why in the heavens sake is Fleecy Moss answering these questions instead of the people whose product os4 actually is.
I find it a bit strange that a company that hasn't coded a single line of code for os4 and is not developing the product, gets to answer very technical questions about it. Has anyone tried to approach someone from the Hyperion team to do these q&a's? It's their product and I'm sure they wouldn't mind free
advertizing along with customer support that builds up customer&company trust and releationship.
At the moment it's a bit like asking questions from Bill Buck regarding os4 or something. (well that's an exaggeration to put it mildly) Anyway I have to doubt that Fleecy really has a depth of knowledge of this kind about the internals of os4 that he exhibits in these q&a's which leads me to conclusion that everytime he is asked something he fires an email to hyperion with the question and then receives an answer which he can then put forward as it was him knowing them all.
I dont know if that's the case happening here, but I have a doubt since of all the things that have been going on with AI. However if that IS the case. Wouldn't it be better to aske the questions from someone who actually knows the answers (ie. Ben Hermans or something) instead of taking a q&a detour and thus giving credit to people who might not have much to do with the product at hand.
It's hyperion creating os4 afterall and the credit should go 99% to the os4 team and 1%to AI for licencing the product to hyperion.
