Stewy: Looking at your other earlier post, there's also this.

Amongst many other things, you make a big thing of Castle "leaving a number of their customers disappointed" if they don't "fund Select for the Iyonix."

You then dismiss the very large number of us Iyonix owners who have said we won't be subscribing to Select again without a firm commitment to the Iyonix.

You don't really explain why you expect Iyonix users to blame Castle rather than RISCOS Ltd. More practically, you don't explain why you expect those of use who have both Iyonix and Select (me and many others) to carry on paying money to RISCOS Ltd, rather than further upgrading Iyonix machines with which we're already very happy.

If you're happy with old-style hardware that's fine, you and everyone else who owns it should upgrade it and keep RISCOS Ltd in business. I'd consider a RO Adjust upgrade myself, except I can't buy one unless 249 other people do too.

Either way, it's not clever, and it's not likely to be self-financing for RISC OS Ltd for very long at all.

(And I'm still not clear as to whence you came up with those "informed speculation" rumours).
