Many don't know this but Apple is eight times the size of Dell, larger than HP, larger than Intel, forty times the size of Acer and now 70% the size of Microsoft and closing. The business case for Aladdin 4D on Mac OS X is clear. Since DELL's, Acer's, and HP PC's run Linux as well as Windows, we don't miss out on those sales either. Once you open the curtain and look through it, the possibility's are endless in the post Windows world.
The Amiga Inc. vs Hyperion Entertainment lawsuit is finally over. After years and years of uncertainty, the two parties have now reached an extensive, end-all-be-all settlement agreement under which Hyperion gets the rights to the Amiga trademarks, as well as the rights to AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4.x, and any possible future version. This outcome is fantastic news for Amiga fans and Aladdin 4D customers that are excited to run A4D under Amiga OS 4.1 in the future.

The first point to note is that despite this two-OS capability, you can actually only boot up into Android. Switch the machine on from scratch or do a restart, and you'll go straight to the Google OS.
To load Windows 7, you must first start Android, then select "Switch OS" from Android’s slide-out menu and then wait for Windows to load up in the usual way.

The Linux version of Aladdin 4D is very important for us but the Windows version is not. As you already know and as noted in the article above Windows continues to loose market-share and relevance.

The release of version 7 of Windows will be here next week. Windows 7 is a better version of Vista, which failed miserably in the market, but will 7 succeed where Vista flunked? Seven is a desperate grab to save the Windows brand from the perception that Windows is a garbage operating system. This reputation was well earn in the past. The future is not certain but things should start to become clear on October 22nd, 2009. TG Daily seems to think Se7ven might be selling well by 2011 but they are not sure.

Our song remains the same about the Windows version of Aladdin 4D. We will never sell that version to customers but we will included it for free once it's complete. Customers will have to buy Aladdin 4D 6.0 on other platforms to get the Windows version of the 3D animation package.

The suit was initially filed by Timothy Vernor after eBay, responding to requests by Autodesk, removed the Autocad software that Vernor was trying to sell on the auction site. EBay later banned Vernor from the site, based on Autodesk's complaints.
Vernor argued that since he was selling legitimate versions of the software -- not illegal copies -- he hadn't violated any laws. Autodesk contends that it doesn't "sell" its software, but instead licenses it and therefore prohibits buyers from reselling it.
Our position on this is you have every right to resell Aladdin 4D if you no longer need it. We recommend selling it for a high price to get some ROI but it's ultimately up to you. We only ask that you send us a one page statement transferring ownership information so we can keep the new customer informed about updates. Autodesk is just trying to make EULA excuses to insure everyone buys brand new copies. They are welcome to do that but it's not very customer friendly. We have no intention of punishing customers for their support. Buy, own and enjoy Aladdin 4D like you would a brand new Porsche. If you move on to LightWave 3D or stop using 3D software sell your copy with our blessing. We hope you had fun while it lasted and maybe you will come back one day.
