In reply to mavhc:

You are correct in stating that RISC OS Ltd has insufficient money to develop the OS in the way we might wish. This is why I have a problem with their behaviour - I see them hindering Castle, the only company with the wherewithall to move RISC OS forward. ROL should align with Castle's vision and strategy, focussing their efforts on bringing enhancements to ALL desktop users whilst leaving the pursuit of new markets to CTL. I don't object to competition, but it seems to me that ROL's vision is to continue producing minor enhancements (our OS has fallen behind rather badly) of RISC OS until such time as the OS is completely irrelevant and / or existing users die of old age.
