I think that the problem for those of us who have never experienced Select is to know what we will be getting for our money. RISC OS 5 already does what I need it to do, so I need a good reason to buy Select 32. However, the ongoing development and support of RISC OS is important, and if there are worthwhile improvments (ie not just cosmetic or things that I don't need like multi-user login) I will almost certainly support it.
As an Iyonix owner who has never used Select, I would like ROD (as I suppose we should call them now) to send me a mail shot or even an email describing the existing Select features that will be included in Select32, plus their planned future developments and asking for support.
If there are significant improvements existing or planned, I, and I am sure many other Iyonix users like me would be happy to subscribe. I think ROD are missing an opportunity here.
