Jc: You're just repeating things that have been said earlier in the discussion. As I suggested, it's hardly likely that all of RISCOS Ltd's programmers spent most of a year in discussions with lawyers.
At the end of the day, either RISCOS Ltd can produce the product in a timely manner, or they can't. Blame games don't change that. If they can't produce the product because of the situation they're in, people are unlikely to re-subscribe.
