In reply to thesnark & hubersn:

I agree with hubersn that it does seem that neither ROL nor CTL really have the development resources to take RISC OS forward. The main difference between these two is that CTL decided to open source their RO so that there is a chance for enhancements by others whereas ROL simply delays releases...

But there are fair chances that enhancements done to RO5 will be usable on RO4/6 too (unless RO changed the interfaces too much).

And as for VirtualAcorn: AFAIR RO5 licenses are to be comparatively low so that it is perhaps worth for VA to look into getting their virtual machine running with RO5 and thus being able to sell it at a cheaper rate.
