Wow, I did look at riscos6.com and one of the first statements is: "Since the launch of Select 3 / OS 4.39 (Adjust ROM) all the development work has gone into the 32 bit conversion of the remainder of the RISC OS Sources that had not previously been converted as part of the RISC OS Select scheme."

Well this is a surprise (or should be but is not really to me): 1. ROL claimed the odd time that Ad6 paid for the work needed to get RO run on A9home - well this obviously includes 32bitting it since A9home needs it for the first time. 2. The next select release to the subscribers took well over two years thus making it a pretty expensive one and now them poor subscribers can read on the official web site that all ROL has done since the previous Select release was the 32 bit conversion and that thus they paid for that.

But perhaps the statement I quoted from riscos6.com needs some corrections...
