Since when have Select subscribers had any influence over ROL? They are treated like complete fools, and expected to keep paying year after year regardless of the lack of development. Users of old machines at least have a free bugfix to follow on from Select 3i4 and the amost beleivable prospect of Select 4 only another promise and subscription fee or two away. However Iyonix users have to be twice the fools, told they have to continue to pay every year, when even if something is released it wont work on their machines, and with only the vaguest non commital suggestion that ROL might eventually get round to supporting their machine.
How much will we have paid for a new version of the OS by then? As much as the Iyonix itself? As much as 2 MAC minis? As much as 3 PC laptops? We might be foolish to stick with RISC OS these days, but we aren't complete idiots.
