Guy: Every machine has specific requirements but Ad6 aren't simply doing their machine-specific bits with ROL. That's all Castle need to do with ROL to get Select for the Iyonix - because ROL and Ad6 have done / are doing the rest for all machines. ROL have been quite clear that the end result is to be an OS that can be produced in 26 or 32 bit versions but be effectively the same for all. Added to that I've had some arguments with Ad6 that makes it quite clear that they do not want software writers to have to distinguish between machines. They are very clearly doing the opposite of forking - though, by the sound of it, they are going in the opposite direction to a vocal group here. .
