Timephoenix: 'If the web browsing and media player issue is sorted, at least then you could aim at general entry level users...' Absolutely right, and more than that, you might stand a chance of keeping current users like myself on board as well. However, Castle, ROL and the remaining RO s/ware publishers seem to be completely disinterested in the browser issue, and I suspect that for many of the more capable user/programmers RO is now simply a hobby platform of no perceived serious usefulness. But I do believe, on the browser at least, that one more sustained effort comparable to Peter Naulls' last year (probably on Firefox, and including Flash support) would actually deliver a modern browser which owners of 32-bit hardware at least would find sufficiently speedy and capable to keep them going. I for one would be prepared to contribute financially to this.
