caliston2: in my opinion, it speaks volumes about the competency of ROL.

nunfetis***: I think that's correct. But if RISC OS 5 was derived from 3.XX and not actually from RISC OS 4 itself, then that means that Castle have not developed and sold RISC OS 4 for the desktop market, but have developed and sold RISC OS 3.XX, for which they had permission to do so before they bought RISC OS.

Therefore, if indeed ROL have the only rights to develop and sell RISC OS 4, then those rights have not been breached.
