In reply to JMS:
"I'm not quite sure I follow the car analogy ... but if I use it, I feel it's like buying a new car that doesn't have the aircon, electric windows and GPS system of my current car, but it'll have a bigger engine and uprated suspension. I might then have to wait another couple of years for this model to get aircon, etc. Personally, I prefer a car with aircon to one with a big engine."
Well yes, you would wouldn't you. Presumably that's why Castle now want to do some work on the aircon and get it installed in their 'car' (RISC OS 5). The (silly) arguement around here, however, seems to be that since other car manufacturers have put aircon into their own cars, Castle have to use their aircon otherwise it will be a Terrible Thing. As a customer buying the car, however, surely if you get the aircon you're happy, regardless of where it came from?
