Whats being talked about is continuing what Castle have already done, with the chargeable upgrade to USB2. The machine will always be supplied with a free OS delivering the required base functionality, but there may be several areas where there are optional enhancements available which you can also purchase.
So far Castle have only done this for hardware drivers, not wanting to step on ROL's toes in pure OS development. But if ROL persist in ignoring Iyonix users, I don't see why Castle shouldn't provide some of the more useful Select features their customers have requested. Icon cut&paste for example.
