How is it possible that Commodore(USA)/Amiga is not real Amiga, but AmigaOne and AmigaOS are?


Amiga Inc settled with Hyperion to develop the OS alone in court

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_AmigaOS_4_dispute

And now sells only name.

Buyer is CommodoreUS small LCC that pretends to be big just because of VIC, COmmodore and Amiga names.

And who sold them the name?

Great fake company that didn`t developed AmigaOS at all

And by buying CUSA products you sponsor Amiga Inc

http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=35791&forum=44&5

What isn`t a parallel is that each CUSA customer supports Amiga Inc directly through licencing scheme.

Barry Altman sais:

Given the expressed desire to progress from being a licensee to
an owner of both Commodore and Amiga IP, is there any
progress on either of those fronts?
I can’t recall every publically making that statement.
Could you describe exactly how the legal situation stands
regarding the brand names (Commodore, Amiga, with
associated marks like „Boing Ball“ etc), and licenses and
ownership’s thereof?
The Commodore trademark is still being duked out in the courts, as we
have documented on our forum, commodore-amiga.org.
Amiga Inc, continues to own the AMIGA trademark and Boing Ball
trademark amongst other things. Our license covers Boing Ball
imagery on our Commodore Amigas.
How much did you pay Amiga Inc. for the rights to use the
Amiga name on your computers?
Such contracts are confidential between the parties to the agreement.
Do you pay Amiga Inc. a licensing fee for each machine sold, or
was it a single lump sum payment, or a combination of both?
I will this one time indulge you and say, both.

    With good OS (Linux, AmigaOS) PPC is not slow. G5 Class is better then calssic PIV and Cell in PS3 with Linux eats away most of PCs.
    Hyperion are good coders, but just few good man. MorphOS is better because its longer in development, in fact MorphOS is first PPC AmigaOS.
    Note that PPC, Hyperion and OS4 bashing will not be allowed – I suggest you MooBunny

      I had Pegasos 2 with both MOS ans AOS.

      AOS was buggy, poor stability and speed compared to MOS.

      Will never again buy AOS.

        In time it will catch up, especially if it gets multi core and full RadeonHD support, Update your OS to 4.1.4 to get more stability and also get MOS 3.
        You have been warned, if you keep comments like that you will be consored as on CUSA YT and FB pages

    I have since sold Pegasos

    Maybe one day Mac Mini or PowerMac.

    OS4 no deal for me, too expensive and slow hardware.

    Best use AROS or Linux.

    And I do use Linux. AmigaOS and MorphOS are rapidly growing in past few years, as never before, So never say never, alternatives are always good.

    It is obvious that the only attitude Andre has for the Amiga is contempt. It causes him no harm yet he seeks to destroy it.
