I may be in a minority - but I think RO5 works well enough anyway. And my spending on Select would simply divert my limited resources from supporting companies/developers that *are* willing to support Iyonix (e.g., Icon Technology, MW, Castle et al).

Select may well be a "nice to have" on Iyonix but (guess what), the Iyonix does all I *need* it to do, if ROL wanted to get me to even consider spending my money on their wares they'd have to do their port to Iyonix *first*.

Additionally I must admit that I am somewhat more wary now than before, ROL tend to do things to exclude people (DVD-ROM that when they were launched were said not to play on Iyonix . . . .) and documentation that is only available to subscribers (contrast that with RO5 who details are open to all on www.iyonix.com, you don't even have to buy an Iyonix). ROL need to convince people .... and putting arbitrary limits and conditionality and fudge in just doesn't cut it - sorry !!!!
