Yet Another AmigaOS 4 Enhancer Software Graphics Upgrade Update

Great expansion that should be available for All Amiga Users today!

This is a very nice package upgrade for AmigaOS 4 users. However. I think that this package should be bundled with AmigaOS 4 release as an option. Also in some distant future, Enhancer Software Classic will be released as mentioned at AmiWest 2018 in Sacramento. But according to the information that I haveĀ  is that the Classic version is developed for AmigaOS 3.9 according to Amigakit, while most of Amiga users is now switching over to AmigaOS 3.1.4. Didn’t You of all know that AmigaOS 3.1.4 is coming?

My biggest question regarding this package is that I think A-EON and Hyperion Entertainment should work much closer with each other. Also! If the purpose of Enhanced Software package is to add stuff to nextgen and classic AmigaOS operating systems. Why isn’t A-EON also helping out MorphOS or AmigaOS 3.1.4?

So many questions hits my mind regarding this package and for the Classic version when it will be released. On one side I feel its correctly made since it gains the developers of the package but I also feel that especially the graphics card drivers should have been part of AmigaOS 4.

Why isn’t A-EON helping AmigaOS 4 sales by doing this?
