There's a school of thought that RISC OS Ltd doesn't really deserve the money anyway. After all, they were the ones that ruled out 32bit RISC OS altogether, which probably shed another shedload of users before Castle stopped a rot a little.

Having said that, the latest Select FINALLY offers seriously compelling, tempting features (I confession using 3.7, but that's only because at one time I was saving for the post-RISC PC machine).

For years I've made my money on the Mac, so any new RISC OS machine will be for personal pleasure, a piece of enjoyable exotica. I do still prefer the basic feel of Artworks for illustration over Illustrator, though.

I'd love to see 'IyonixCube for 799' as a Drobe headline. 1249 is too much for 90% the RISC OS market to take, it's a shame 32bit RISC OS really has nowhere to run at the moment.
