Is Dave Haynie even a member on Amiga.org? How is he going to see this thread anyway?

It was pointed out that the letter was linked in the aw.net thread. Also, Dave has now responded it seems. I'm still not happy with it however. He is still repeating the old heresay (someone once saw some comments in some unrelated code).

He has no basis for his claims. MorphOS does not, and never has contained any content from AmigaOS, code, comments, documents, graphics, fonts, sounds or otherwise.

Also, I'd like to add that US laws (thankfully) don't apply globally. In sane parts of the world reverse engineering for the purposes of interoperability is allowed.

I do not have an account on aw.net, nor was I willing to create one just for this (and I'm not particularily fond of aw.net in general, although it has gotten much more sensible lately). I do not know Dave's email address either.

By the time I posted here he hadn't responded yet.

I'm not sure that dragging this crap onto A.org was the right thing to do. If it meant that much to you, you should have replied at the source. Not here.

If I had worked as hard on something as Piru and the rest of the MorphOS devs, and someone, no matter their god like status with some, started dragging up these old accusations without any evidence,then I would be really really pissed.

I see nothing wrong with wanting answers, and Yes he does have an account on here HazyDave.

It Defo is about time he actuallyput up or shut up as somone else said.

I couldn't agree more.

After reading Dave's recent personal insults to the MorphOS developers in Amiga Future magazine along with this recent comment on AW, I have no respect for the man at all.

Much as I respect Dave, I've gotta say if you make an accusation in public, you need to put up your evidence. Otherwise, it's just bitching, and there's too much bitching in the community these days.

Is he even part of the "community" these days?

What has he contributed since Commodore went belly up besides bitchy comments towards legends of the Amiga scene?

Rather than putting energy into fighting and compile a list of Amiga software that works on Morphos.

So much this and that on Amiga.org, don't get me wrong it has helped me heaps getting whdload and my Amiga 1200 up and running, but just imagine what we could do if we all stopped the fighting and moved it forward.

There seems to be the 68k classic users, the WINUAE users, Aros users, Sam440/460, x1000, AmigaOS XL and Morphos users...we all love the Amiga and we all have views of what we believe is best way forward for the Amiga.

It is a shame it has become so fragmented but at the time so good as it means the Amiga look and feel is available on so many platforms.

Anyway my 2 cents.
