In reply to aardvark: You're not seriously expecting Cineroma to ever be released, are you? It's sad that such a lot of work on it has gone to waste, but it's obviously a 'dead duck' now. We won't see a 'real player' for RISC OS either - many have suggested ways of doing it, but no-one seems to have the time. I can understand that as it takes sooooo long to write/convert such things, and with little or no financial reward, why should they? RISCOS Ltd, on the other hand, have a commercial interest in seeing their OS flourish, but seem to ignore the features and software that's fundamental to modern computer systems. Maybe they don't see that as their role, but without such software, they won't sell many copies of the OS, so perhaps they should review their strategies?
