"From our point of view the lack of new features in RISC OS 5 since its launch four years ago speaks volumes."

Yes, it's shocking the way that Castle have only implemented support for new hardware like USB2 and multiple graphics cards, rather than getting down to the serious business of allowing rounded corners on action buttons. More seriously, I agree with hzn that this is a bit of cheek coming from a subscription-funded company that gave their subscribers nothing for three years - especially since Castle have a well-earned reputation for keeping quiet about new developments until they're actually ready. Yes, there are some useful changes to things in Select that RO5 doesn't have - most notably some of the improvements to the bundled apps - but none of them is exactly earth-shattering.
