I imagine I am like a lot of other Iyonix users, who upgraded from a RiscPC without ever getting personally involved with Select.

Subscription payments were too much like the licencing system MS uses. I prefer to assess a product, (functionality/price), and purchase it with a one-off payment.

I have in the past installed Select, for one of my brothers, onto his RiscPC. At the time I did not see anything in it that I needed, and it has caused my brother the odd problem.

The last thing I did for him was to install the Adjust ROMs, but I still have not seen any "must have" features.

If Select is so great, why has nothing really been shown to Non-Select people, to convince us that we need it ?

My Iyonix is great, and I would only be interested in Select if it would add to the current package.
