And are you saying for Iyonix users that the release of RO6 is significant ?

This is silly "quasi-logic" John. Any release of *anything* RISC OS is significant to *somene* who is a RISC OS user. I'd remind you for years you said you wouldn't review the "Omega" until it was complete (and then on a different tact started a symantic argument with me about the meaning of complete with respect to A9 on the newsgroups and then proceeding to recommend to people to consider it [A9]).

RO6, from a Iyonix user's perspective is (largely) irrelevant. Would I like to see you mention it in Quercus - yes!

RO5 (a 32bit version of RISC OS that better supports modern hardware than RO6) doesn't get a mention - as it is (in your opinion) not significant. Yet by the same consistent logic it *should*.

If I were to judge your impartiality based on your contributions on newsgroups I'd be of the opinion that you're not. I would have considered subscribing to Quercus had it not been from some of your comments there. Perhaps the commentary in Quercus is more balanced - but I don't see why I should put any money down and take the chance and I am sure others thing likewise.
