    That (series of) lawsuit(s) was started by Amiga Inc., though.

    Yes, that was a fiasco, wasn't it?
    Its what actually got my attention a drew me into this community.
    Up until that point, I thought OS4 was long dead.
    Until Bill decided to sue to try to regain control over the whole thing there was little attention from the outside world.
    Not the smartest decision on his part, waiting too long, and then suing a lawyer.

    But I still get the impression that Ben's plan all along was to try to wrest control of the asset from McBill.

    An unsavory collection of people from Day 1, that they ever thought they could trust each other is truly amazing.
