If experience has taught you anything in the RISC OS world, pre-buying, subscribing amd donating is generally a bad idea. If you treat companies like charities, they'll treat you like donors and donors don't have to receive products.

However, next time someone releases a freeware or Open Source app that you really like, give them money.

Most current RISC OS development is coming from people who give their time and effort for no reward, reward them for their efforts, don't reward anyone in advance of a product you may never receive.
