ROL has, on several occasions, let us know that they wanted at least 100 pledges to start the actual work on it. It's just too bad they do not seem to have any official news of that on their site:

If that is not the case, can they be accused of misleading people? I've come to the point, I cannot trust their statements anymore, which is very, very sad. I am sorry if their company has become so unstable, their business so unpredictable, that they cannot commit firmly to certain words they've spoken in the past.

Besides that, it is also clear that ROL do not have all information they need to create a 100% compatible or 'official' version of Select for the Iyonix, since, contrary to the RiscPC, it seems they lack certain technical specs. Mr. Middleton has stated on several occasions that the intended work would be so much easier if Castle would give a hand. I find that strange, since Castle has stated they will assist ROL in this endeavor at last years' Expo show. I wonder - how can this truly work out in full, if both companies have not resolved their differences?

I already suspected the A9home will not ship with a full Select, which makes perfect sense. A9home users should, like everybody else, subscribe (or whatever) to take advantage of the Select developments.
