Stephen Gadd>"If I were RISCOS Ltd I'd be interested in becoming the defacto distribution. "

Why? What exactly *would* ROL bring to the party - they have shown a *complete* disinterest in Iyonix users. Additionally if ROL were to *charge* for any of the source *or* try to close it and include it in Select then they'd have to pay *a license fee* for such use.

I'd be happier leaving it in the capable hands of Castle or ROOL rather than RISC OS Ltd - besides as others have pointed out ROL are *already* obliged to their existing subscribers who have paid for goods yet haven't received them yet.
