mikeg> I think you missed an "Omega" somwhere in that sentence maybe?

Castle have done nowt to me bar screw up and split the user base and have folks not pulling together with RISC OS. There's probably going to be a shed load of wasted effort at Castle bringing RO5 up to anything like Select 1 standard, let alone Select 3 and that's just daft when we need as many bodies producing _new_ stuff as possible. IMO, Castle have been pig headed and arrogant about the whole thing and are splitting up RISC OS rather than making a better RISC OS scene. I don't think I'm exactly alone in this view either. Remember, at the end of the day we buy these machines BECAUSE OF THE OS, so having a duff old RISC OS 3.7^H^H^H5 variant, albeit on a whizzy fast new platform, seems a bit pointless to me. Just my 2p worth. Now - on with Virtual RiscPC! :-)
