In a recent and now removed newsitem on amigaworld.net DaveyD posted the following.
27 February 2004: San Francisco, California. KMOS, Incorporated announced today that it has acquired the Operating System known as Amiga OS 4.0 from Amiga, Incorporated. Garry Hare, Chief Executive Officer of KMOS, said, the acquisition of this innovative operating system was completed in April of 2003. We have continued to cooperate, and will continue to cooperate, with the existing development, technical and distribution partners toward bringing this next generation computing experience to
the AmigaOne market.
KMOS understands that a number of consumers have participated in promotional programs through Amiga, Incorporated that enable them to receive a copy of this new product at a price discounted from retail. KMOS will honor all such promotional
programs. Prior to the commercial release of OS 4.0 information will be provided so that anyone holding a discount coupon, or other promotional offer, can easily redeem it and be among the first to receive this impressive product.

|If Garry Hare was involved with AmigaInc now, he surely would issue some kind of newsworth PR, right? This is most certainly a hoax?|

It sure is, and they seem to be doing it so fast that I missed the announcement of when KMOS sold it back to Amiga Inc. :-P

Well, I do believe there is a reason for why the very same "news" was removed on both AmigaWorld.net and ANN.lu. earlier today...

Yeah, you would think someone would get the message by now.
IIRC it did say (Unconfirmed) on the original Amigaworld post.

And there was a quite significant questionmark in the headline as well...

Yes, but it's lacking a question mark in it's reference to Amigaworld.net. As it looks now, it seems to be a straightforward claim by DaveyD rahter than as the original intent to request for confirmation.

It was also posted and removed from Ann too - why?
Since April 2003? If this is all true - it sounds good but it promotes LOTS of questions.
