Ohh l,ots of people cry out for open source RISC OS, and just as it is made available, we get the GPL is this and GPL is that brigade coming out of the woodwork qande arguing about GPL rather than being positive about the OS at hand.
Look, it is simple........Castle are releasing the code for many to play with and they can feed back the details, however, the OS is castle's and theirs alone to decide.
Just be thankful, that it has arived and you now can hgave a look.
If you dont like their terms and conditions then it is simple. Don't touch it with a bargepole and get on with your life. Dont get on your high-horse and rant.
Or if you don't like the terms but really really feel for the OS, then bite a bit of pride and lend a hand.
Otherwise do something else.
If you like the terms and conditions and can help then do so with a smile on your face.
I'm away to ask about porting my fav IDE to RISC OS now.
