    David, you do have a point that things have been less confrontational in recent years. There has even been some cooperation (like Fab's port of OWB to AOS4).
    And we are never likely to see the questions I've dredged up directly addressed because the transaction chain probably isn't valid.
    Frankly, I'm glad Hyperion has retained control of its work.
    I just bristle at Dave's contention that somehow the MorphOS team has improperly used AOS3.1 source code.
    It's an echo of sentiments voiced by Ben Hermans years ago and its baseless.
    When I've exchanged messages with Trevor Dickinson, we've discussed how it would be nice to have a common platform.
    But with all this old baggage dragging us down, I don't ever see that happening.

    You are right I calling me out for bring this into the discussion as it isn't directly related to Piru's request to Dave Haynie.
    I hope he gets an answer, but I've never seen anyone who has made comments like this actually address those they're commenting on.
    The whole situation plays out like the Obama birther idiocy.
