Select in ROM is something that *lots* of people have been asking for, so it's encouraging to see that ROL have responded to that. True, there's controversy over the absence of Select for Iyonix, but as the VRPC user-base grows (with informed speculation of more VRPC users than those with an Iyonix?), the market for a '26 bit OS' may continue to be lucrative.

Although ROL have said that there'll be a version of Adjust for Virtual RiscPC, they haven't announced any pricing yet, have they? Presumably, it will be cheaper, as it'll be supplied on CD? Anyway, I'm looking forward to buying Adjust for my VRPC laptop and my Omega. As I understand it, the Omega can have physical ROMs or simply upgrade its 'Flash ROM', which is nice and versatile.

"tearing out chips and carefully fitting new ones just to upgrade your OS to be a little barbaric"

You can get a refund on the RO4 chips, so 'tear' them out carefully ;-)

  • RISCOS Ltd's head licence with E14 leaked
    A partial scanned copy of what appears to be the original 1999 licence between ROL and E14 - the company formed from the break-up of Acorn that kept the RISC OS technology - has been anonymously leaked to several RISC OS magazines and websites this afternoon. The disclosure, which arrived by email from a gmail account, is believed to have come about following the recently revived licensing dispute between ROL and Castle.
