What a bitter and rude unprofessional mess we read from Castle. They've taken to making "announcements" of their disputes via back alleys like the drobe forums? CTL have been scathing and derisory about Select for as long as I can remember and now they believe they have the power to crush it. They've done precious little development of anything since Iyonix was launched 2 years ago, and now they've just resorted to this move destroy the RISC OS market place to try and force everyone to believe in their bent view of the world. Crush everyone else selling non-Iyonix-crappy-version-of-RISC-OS products. Great idea. They're completely insane if they believe everyone will suddenly turn around and say "oh, we don't need Select, that crufty RISC OS 5 will do me fine, and oh look, I suddenly found a spare 1500 quid in my back pocket so I can get an Iyonix". Nonsense. This is just childish money-grabbing behaviour that will only result in destroying the whole scene. Thanks, Castle, for killing our OS. :-(
