This is a photodesk announcement and negativity about the recent OS creeps in? The biggest damage done is by those who know very little if any facts (embedded in legal documentation) but speculate endlessly. If everyone just shut up and waited there would be little if any damage done. Remember folks that those search engines will be, potentially, automatically picking up on every news post made here and on CSA for everyone to see.
Consolidation of ownership of the current RISC OS applications is needed and is a good thing since it improves profit margins and therefore the potential for more development.
