    I think they rather licensed the rights to them or sold them a license ;-)


    Doesn't matter whether they licensed it, sold it, rented it, prostituted it or wrapped it around their penis and conceived children with it. It wasn't theirs. Please stick to the point.

    I'm with number6 here.

    Please at least *try* to stick to the truth, even if it's hard sometimes.

    What is the case now wasn't necessarily the case back then, obviously.

    If I can give you a tip, it's not to fussily nitpick everything people say, and just go with the actual point. You're infamous for it, when you do it a lot nobody reads it, and it often drives the conversation completely off track for no good reason.

    Your sole contribution to this conversation was pointing out who IComp got the Commodore licence from. Thanks for that, but everything else you wrote was useless verbiage. Someone had actually predicted it on IRC when I wrote "bought" (of which I still give zero shits about the distinction, tbh), and said I should change it before you got wind - but I said, nah, not even Andreas could be that uselessly pedantic. Thanks for disappointing me.

    Please spare me the patronizing.

    Then just don't, easy :-)

    I also pointed out that I don't deem it more likely that it was iComp who put Manomio in contact with Hyperion than that it was anybody else or nobody in particular at all, as today's perceived isolation of Hyperion wasn't there 8 years ago (or was it even more like 9 years ago?).

    You should listen to those who know better :-)

    > Thanks for disappointing me.

    You're welcome. Seems I'm not that predictable ;-)
