hzn>The point is with RO5.xx open sourced Iyonix users are *not* strictly dependant on ROL (or Castle - other than their releasing the source to ROOL) in order to improve the OS and add bits. Some of those bits *could* implement User Interface functionality present in Select but absent in RO5. The fact it might be acchieved by grabbing software vectors (on RO5.xx) or using the abstracted kernel features (on Select) matters not a jot. At the end of the day if RO5 has it's current advantages and has an "appearance" similar to Select that would be good enough for most Iyonix users.
