err, why can it only end in disaster? Castle are obviously confident in their product. It's been about now or a short while and as far as I know is quite stable. Why shouldn't they now try to push their product into other markets. Let's face it, someone has to, otherwise the RO market is will continue on it's hardy, rocky and dwindling(that how you spell it?) road to nowhere, with only a few die hards left using it in a matter of years. Yes, it's never going to be on the same footing as windows, but, you know, Apple are still around and Linux is pushing it's way into business. I think Castle are right to be trying to create a new market for RISC OS. Creating a new market is the only hope for the continued survival of RISC OS as an altertnative OS and as a community.

In reply to drjones69: Harking back to the good old days of Acorn is all very well, but let's not forget they made their fair share of mistakes,as as already been admitted. Acorn is not around any more. We have to look to the future without Acorn and not have our beliefs rooted to Acorn's hey days.

Whatever the legal wranglings are, the main thing is that they are sorted out quickly an amicably before we lose any more dealers and developers.

Sort it out guys!!!
