Letter of the week - RISCOS Ltd boss Paul Middleton pulls us up for getting his company's directorships wrong.

From: Paul Middleton
To: Chris Williams
Subject: ref: Last Issue of Foundation RISCWorld Published article
I don't know how many times I've mentioned that articles published on Drobe should be accurately researched.
Aaron Timbrell is NOT a Director of RISCOS Ltd. A constant mistake that you and a number of other RISC OS bashers have been making over the past couple of years.
Please correct the article immediately and also point out the error and apologise for failing to accurately research your articles.
P.S Why is Dave Holden (who is a Director) constantly included in "this week's poll" items, regardless of the question. Is this a bug in the Drobe software?

Aaron has since confirmed that he is no longer a ROL director. He stood down after overseeing the release of RISC OS 6 and the release of documentation to end users and developers - but continues to carry out consultancy work for the company. The article in question has been corrected and Drobe is happy to clarify the situation and apologise for any distress caused.
