Perhaps the other guys, given the importance of getting the ROOL project moving, held back to give them a chance?

knutson>Good idea, but then the arguments would start. Either you'd have some people complaining that RISC OS consumables are too pricey or some people would object that *certain* glamour projects are getting money while others are not. The approach ROOL have taken avoids some of this - purchases are optional - and we all know where the money is going so no arguments there either.
