NeilWB> ...only Castle having a suitable version of RISC OS (TTBOMK), unfortunatly no-one has made such a product.

And therein lies the problem. ROL are now in a position of either being forced to allow ROS to run on PC (a stupendously bad move - it'll positively encourage people to leave the platform) or to wait on the only other player in town to have a machine that can support their 26bit only OS (namely Microdigital).

All that will happen (and I'll go along with Neil on this) that Castle will basically enhance ROS overtime so that the non-availability of Select on Iyonix will be utterly irrelevant.

The key thing Castle have done is to get the key (vital) technologies working (UDMA is now done for example - which is far more important than the shape of text icons) - and then in due course they'll probably "dolly" other things up (to do it the other way round would be plain silly).
