    Kenny has a point. I'd rather not gamble on hardware projects vended by known eccentrics.

    I doubt it. More likely it'll go the same way as all the rest of Jens' stuff: something very interesting that sells initially well, gets next to no software support, and is abandoned and disappears with nary a trace as Jens moves onto the next shiny thing to catch his interests.

    Hmm... Can't argue that my ACA123x or the Indivision do not work?? They do so for some years now.


    Indeed. I can't really complain about Jens' products and support.

    Addendum:

    > Some status update on the Commodore A1200 Reloaded from 2½ weeks ago: [...]

    Latest update to the wiki page is from 2020. With respect to the license for the 4600 AmigaOS 3.x units, the deadline for the hardware sales launch will run out a year from now:

    "the date that the Hardware goes on sale [...] shall not exceed a total of seven (7) years as of the Effective Date of this Agreement [April 24, 2017]"

    Well, it has been working out for Individual Computers more than once since 2013:

    https://docs.google.com/file/d/1KON22TueJ1ZovL3ASEx8JOdytvYQlGP8/edit (pages 11 to 44)

    The delay (or cancellation?) of the Commodore A1200 Reloaded has certainly not been caused by Hyperion.

    That is a wonderful historical document. Factually supports much of my own research.

    Thanks
