As for "Paul suggested there won't be a Select 4i3 out for the South East show, but there might be one for the Christmas shows" ... well well, I didn't expect any new Select anyhow since I assume(d) that ROL is very, very busy tackling to get RO6 done for A9home - I do remember that Paul told me at the RISC OS Roadshow in the Netherlands (oops, that was well over a year ago) that the primary goal was to get RO for the A9home done.

As for Pauls "He also claimed that there would never be another native RISC OS hardware platform...": Well, I dare say that I'd be indeed very surprised if any other company starts with native hardware based on ROL's RO6 considering the track record for A9home - you know, that really nice, small, silent RISC OS box for which ROL claimed to be working with high priority to get the new Select done for... On the other hand I wouldn't be surprised if CTL suddenly has something like IYONIX2 on sale.

As for "VirtualAcorn on Linux": If I remember correctly RISC OS 5 licenses shall be pretty cheap now so perhaps a VA for Linux (or any other OS) using RO5 might be interesting since it could perhaps be much cheaper... On the other hand isn't VA the only future market for ROL since I have the impression that they're not into IYONIX Select and progress for A9home doesn't suggest much interst either and Paul stated that he doesn't expect new hardware anyhow :-)
