sa110: Even though you're right about RO5 we need to be on that road anyway. If the problem is that Iyonix are causing the delay then it's up to ROL to just get on with what they can and show what's causing the hold-up.

fylfot: You are repeating what I said 7/8 years ago. Although the problem of advertising is still there it's a problem that needs the support of us all. I'll continue to chivvy ROL - and do my bit - but everyone needs to sell RISC OS for any of us to get anywhere on that road. As for leadership - that has been made near impossible by some of the vicious statements that are made on Usenet. The only people who avoid them are those who keep their heads down. We certainly need to get all in-fighting behind us. In the past I've not wanted to promote RISC OS because of what people would see if they took a look at what RISC OS was about. I cannot be alone with that view - and that's up to all of us. I want to promote the A9home, Iyonix, Virtual Acorn, and RO6 for older, current, and future machines. That's looking a short way into the future but the road is clearly marked out. As Ian recognises it's a road that I've seen for some years and getting to where we are now has been delayed by that in-fighting. My optimism has been much dented - but if we do all get behind a future for all RISC OS developers then (now I'm allowed) I'll bring everyone up to date with that 'vision'.
