I made a point after the Riscstation laptop fiasco and my initial select subscription (where I got nothing) that I would never, ever buy another RiscOS product unless it was on the shelf and for sale.

If others would have done the same we would have spent our money on software (which I did for 2 titles with my next select sub). This software base would have become larger and addressed the main problem. Lack of up to date software.

The only "charitable" money I put towards a similar project was the UNIX proting project. I had confidence that Peter would deliver and he did (and trust me, I'm the last person that would back PN).

The main think that prevented me from staying with RiscOS was the ability to run JAVA apps like ImageJ.

Good luck to the people behind RiscOS Open (ROSO) whatever they do. Bob
