>Simple, they have their own agenda to make money and put it in first place.
Congratulations! You just earned yourself a degree in economics.
Seriously, they are a business rather than some form of charity organization, of course they will do what makes the most business sense! What did you expect, free beer?
Furhtermore, they dropped the AmigaOS at first since it didn't make business sense to rewrite the old legacy 68k and chipset dependant AmigaOS for just a handful of dedicated AmigaOS users. However, when several third parties offered to do the work for them, they agreed to license the technology so that third parties could continue the classic line of products while they keep their focus on the next generation technology. You can whine about this strategy all you want but I don't think you will accomplish anything but look really childish.
