nijinsky With you on the point "I would never, ever buy another RiscOS product unless it was on the shelf and for sale".

It was pretty simple for Castle to garner much goodwill simply by putting a product on the market that could be bought straight away and did what is said on the tin. Which after all is how companies should operate in any market.

In the last year we have spent less than my lost deposits on RS portables and two year's Select subs combined on mac mini add ons. As a result we have derived far more pleasure and useful functionality out of these items than from any of the Select 'improvements' or RISC OS vapourware touted to 'loyal' enthusiasts.

JWCR Yep Select was a true waste of my money too. You live and learn....and then walk away.
