chriswhy RO5 is however still eminently usable as an operating system. Having invested in CDROMFS Photo Filer and Win95FS upgrades I find there is little that I need or want from Select on my Iyonix (the last version of Select I have experience of is 4.37).

Whilst I can appreciate that Select/Adjust may be more elegant than RO5 as a user I am not going to 'poke around under the bonnet' as I do with cars and therefore elegance is of little importance to me unless it provides significant performance advantages.

The interesting question for me about what happens at a certain point when the two OS strands are merged. At that point is the Iyonix going to ship with the last iteration of RO5 or will we have to buy a product from ROD whether we want to or not?
