Well that's how you're choosing to read it, I would disagree though. Castle paid for and developed the Iyonix and the OS to go with it. Their primary responsibilities are to *their* customers. At no point was it ever mooted by Castle that Select *would ever* run on Iyonix. When I bought my machine (in 2003) - I knew full well that Select would not be available at that time (or possibly ever). I was happy enough to content myself that I was buying and paying for a more capable and expandible platform than anything Select natively runs on (and funnily enough that still hasn't changed).

Iyonix is a fine machine, the OS it uses is being opened - and that offers a much greater scope for development than Select can offer. Yes work is needed on the User Interface front (where Select has an edge) but there's nothing insurmountable here in my humble opinion.
