It seems after, what turned out to be, a quiet period (still no Select 4) the platform again has some exciting prospects with a strong chance of success.
I believe the window for Oregano 3 (with its embedded Flash 5 player) has almost passed... Given sufficient funding, hopefully Firefox 2 could be here in 6 months time and if one or more developers would invest serious time and effort in the Gnash port, the platform would have a good chance of keeping some more people onboard for a while longer.
It seems the well-known commercial band of developers are increasingly hesitant at publishing new titles or updating software to modern standards (excluding Martin Wuerthner), while the non-commercial developer community is making practical use of open source applications and libraries from the Linux / BSD world. Perhaps the commercial RO era is just about over and this minority platform can only continue with the aid of open source licenses and applications? Castle / ROOL seem to have caught on and intend to offer an interesting mix in the form of a shared source license, whereas ROL are definitely struggling to keep to the old way which seems more and more a dead end now.
