5. I can see a very real chance of AOS3.95 appearing from Hyperion for the NatAmi!!!!
You are the only person I know of who believes that. Who would pay Hyperion to do this? Do you have the financial means yourself?
What would be the point of adding even more proprietary code when people are working their asses off to give the Amiga back to the community through the Natami and other efforts?
Maybe it makes sense for you as an end user only. You do not have to code or construct anything, or try to figure out obfuscated stuff.
But the only path to rapid development for a community project like this is transparency and openness. Since we do not have the source code of OS3, we are going to have to hack and patch stuff. Which is time consuming, and sometimes pretty hard. Adding even more closed source code will make further development of software for Natami even harder.
Do you have any real and valid reason, except for the same old Amiga flag-waving, AmigaOS name fetishism and source code idolatry, for expecting the Natami team to put up with even more closed source bullcrap when trying to develop the Natami?
