Well, it all depends if he is of the mindset to sell, or Open Source it, as it doesn't seem to be going anywhere currently, and then it would be either if he's prepared to make the grand gesture of Open Sourcing the code, or how much he wants for the source code I suppose.
I'd be prepared to support a bounty, if this is viable for the current Amiga community or if it would just be MorphOS users that would be supporting the "Bounty". There has never been a successful MorphOS version of PageStream released by Deron, but I believe Frank Mariak - cyfm
did a fix for the bug-ridden version intended for MorphOS, or could it have been an Amiga version of PageStream 5 that was fixed from a MUI/bug aspect that Frank got working and did a "presentation" of at one of the MorphOS user gatherings.Quote:

Did you ask him in your email if he was prepared to sell or even Open Source any or all of the PageStream versions code?
