Well they seem not to be down on the table plan of confirmed visitors though at last weeks MUG meeting John Rickman indicated that Iyonix Ltd had confirmed for the MUG Xmas show on 6th Dec at the Students Union, Birmingham Uni. Perhaps we'll have to recheck that in light of this news. I suspect that Iyonix Ltd were set up to first be a vehicle to make the most of tax laws and secondandly to ensure the main holding company Castle did not suffer any liabilities.
It is sad that it has got to this stage and nearly all the hardware companies since Acorn's demise have done a sterling job to get us this far.
Pity Iyonix2 may never see the light of day and it may go down just like Pheobe as the machine that never was and could have made a difference , we'll just never know unless someone steps in to the breach if it really is that far advanced.
Still perhaps though native ARM systems may be at an end someone could develop solution that run on standard hardware and processors with an enhanced HAL based on Linux and then use some hooks in tio Linux to give RISC OS some facilities it currently doesn't have.
Still we can dream of another white knight riding in to produce ARM hardware or other solutions as it would be great still to support the OS and it's applications.
In the meantime we still have AD6, VA and hopefully a developing RPCEmu though an IyonixEmu with USB support etc would be nice.
