But surely if RISCOS Ltd were to 'give away' their improvements there would be less of a reason for people to upgrade. When I was at Uni I needed DHCP to connect to the network. because of that, I upgraded to select. At some point things have to stop working on old versions of RO to encourage users to upgrade. I don't need a faster machine at the moment, so for me speeding up my productivity with cut+paste icons was worth the upgrade. If for example Netsurf required Select to work correctly, then perhaps more people would upgrade to use it. Yes you would loose some users. But you always will. (Losing the developers is more of a problem I conceed).
