It is very simple. If ROL /really/ wanted to gauge the support of Iyonix owners, they could have asked them directly, by using the Iyonix-support list. (They /do/ possess an Iyonix, don't they?)

Instead they ask Select users. It's like doing market research for BigMacs at the Vegetarian Society. It isn't anything to do with Business Acumen, it is about getting the answer they wanted all along.

When ROL does go belly-up, as it surely will, they will be able to blame lack of interest from Iyonix users, and lack of help from Castle. Hah!

BTW, the A9 looks like a very useful machine for school use, where space is an intractable problem, but ATM I doubt we will get any, precisely /because/ of it running (a version of) Select. Supporting it alongside a multitude of Iyonixes and a declining fleet of RO 3.7 SARPCs is likely to be horrid. I have deinstalled Select from the machines I had it on for just that reason.
