Well I don't know what happened to my post but here goes again.
Well just as I was starting to feel positive along comes a dose of reality courtesy of ROL. No well this is positive news and we look forward to looking at the options to join forces and move RISC OS foward instead we get this an attributed comment along the lines of this changes nothing.
Where is the vision to say we look forward to jointly developing code to expand the ability of Unicode aand to add to Select. Well I'm within a whisker of saying forget it. I've purchased RISCOS4 more than once, been a Select subscriber and Foundation subscriber and even though I've had an Iyonix for 3 + years I've still subscribed to support the market for nil return. I might as well have saved the £250 and got an A9 because at least then I would have had something. No doubt I can expect a mention in the next ROL newsletter but sometimes you just have to say what you believe in and at this moment my belief in ROL and Select is at an all time low.
