"RISC OS Ltd. could sulk and refuse to accept the new regime, or they may be able to take advantage of it...It is up to them to take advantage of the possibilities."

If I were RISC OS Ltd I'd be interested in becoming the defacto distribution. Perhaps they could go down a Mandriva-style route where official paid-up (40 quid a year? Count me in) members of the "ROL" club get 12 month advance access to their distribution as well as some extra support / newsletters / niceties. (The first release could largely be comprised of Select). After that period a new version is (hopefully) released and the older version submitted as open source / free download. Possible? I'm sure they'd hate the idea but i'm trying to think of a role for ROL and all their experience and Select development in this potential new exciting RISC OS world.
