Thankyou for puttng this on-line, Chris; It is a most interesting read.

And good on Castle for facing their audience even although what they are saying is not what many want to hear.

The questions are tough and direct too, especially, I thought, from John Cartmell towards the end.

Unfortunately the more one learns about the situation between Castle and RISC-OS Ltd the more knotted the problems seem to be.

My own view is that Castle are underestimating how important Virtual Acorn has become in reviving and adding excitement to the desktop market. (but then, I bought an A6 so I would think that)

So, RISC OS is now a "premium product club" with a high enterance fee. Champagne, everyone ?
