Reply to thread

It took a long time to read the entire thread. First, I hope that the NetBook find the way home - it's a sad thing to lose such a machine - and, regarding the 'main' thread, I am neither a Select subscriber nor a Iyonix owner. In fact, I own a RO 3.7 SA machine, and don't even bother to upgrade to RO4 - 3.7 do all sort of things I need. But I think that I must comment. First, when Iyonix was a dream in CTL's heads, Select was all sorts of good. Update to the OS, stable, was everything RO can be. The choir was crying "BUY NOW!!". Now that the Iyonix is a (good) reality, people start saying that Select can be left behind, that it's not necessary to upgrade to it for some few additional features. I think it's not good for RO. Select subscribers pay for an up-to-date OS and suddenly the work done is thrashed ?! And now, for the emulation route. I am using Red Squirrel, that on my 1.8GHz P4 laptop is perfectly usable as a second RO machine. But, I would like an A5000/RPC emu for linux. Linux is more stable than Win. And, only for the sake of discussion, it would be so difficult eradicating the windows dependencies from the program? The less Win code, the more stable. And porting to other platforms will be easier. And now, start flaming, as I think it's worth to die for a principle...
