"After seeing his FUDing of MOS being illegal, then his obvious disdain for Americans with his illiterate American comments, OS4 by Xmas 2002, and other elitist comments, there is no way I'd allow a single penny of mine to go to him in royality proceeds."
I think elitism is a good thing. You are at least as elitist as Ben, which is OK in my opinion.
"And if it wasn't Ben "I'm important" H., MOS would have been AOS4 and the Amiga Community wouldn't have been wasting alot of time in these brush wars."
IMO the problem came from fleecy and Ralph both wanting complete control over the OS, not from Ben at all. However, as it has turned out, I think the fork between AOS4 and MorphOS will lead to productive competition, and apart from the red-and-blue games (which are mostly harmless name-calling) is rather a good thing.
It hasn't done Unix any harm to have various versions around.
"Actually Don, I said, " Of course Eyetech's prices would have bitch slap me back into reality. ;-) " which you conviently left off. If I was really impressed with OS4, I would have to go the route that I always went with Amiga computers, buy second hand. But, that's not going to happen in my case since I have no interest in financially supporting Ben."
Maybe Ben would give the 50 cents or whaever he will get from each sale to charity, to allow you to buy it.
I can't comment on the first part as I don't understand the expession "bitch slap".
