In reply to hubersn:

I absolutely agree!

... especially since on their website for RISC OS Six they state clearly "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. As might be expected this has been a mammoth undertaking and we hope that the wait will have been worthwhile." Well as ROL kept claiming over and over this was paid for by Ad6 - gee, what did ROL then do with all the subscribers money?

But if I go back to their FAQ: "Q. What new features will there be in the RISC OS Select Scheme? A. ...It is not possible to state exactly when any particular new feature or update will appear since the whole idea of the Select Scheme is to make new items available as soon as possible, rather then waiting 3-4 years before releasing everything at once. ... " ... well there they state that you're expected to subscribe and that you will get something (whatever) when it is ready for release - but he has to speed things up to not miss the 3-4 years mark!

  • RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
    Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
