In reply to AMS: One thing more often than not suggested was to softload the Select features as modules on top of RISC OS 5 but ROL kept busy claiming that that was not possible since they need kernel changes for that. Thus it is no surprise to think that they plan to load their full OS and use just the odd hardware driver module from the RISC OS 5 ROM. I'd even dare assume that their graphics driver change with abstraction layer is one step towards this goal. The problem perhaps arising is if things like Aemulor, Geminus etc. will run with Select on RISC OS 5..
