There may have been sarcasm in there alright ;). The buttons and backdrop are the most visible bit - and a lot of the rationalisation and changes and improvements made are somewhat below the surface and not quite so visible. I am quite aware of what Select offers.

But I think the substantive point was is Select so good that it's worth killing off the hardware component of the RISC OS platform. It seems to me that Select has been used as (for example) as a justification for some to move to Windows and for others to (in effect) boycott Iyonix. When seen in *that* light is it really such a good thing (irrespective of whatever technical merits it may have) ?

Kind Regards
