I'm not surprised at the contents of the FAQ (getting back on topic). Once again it shows that Castle have their heads screwed on commercially. The FAQ is exactly what I expected.But it wouldn't surprise me if an Iyonix portable were to appear at some point. With the HAL, the Iyonix technology must be by far the easiest way to design such a beast. But Castle being Castle, they won't announce it until it is ready. Castle don't deal in vapourware!
BTW I don't have any inside information, I am just speculating.
Developing software is expensive, and Oregano2 is much more competent than Browse. So it is clearly the way forward and it would be silly for Castle to duplicate their effort. There are too many other things that have to be addressed if our platform is to hold its head up in serious company. Castle have come a long way with the Iyonix, and as one of the first Iyonix owners I am very impressed with the progress that has been made. For example, back in November, it seemed to crash ever few minutes, and many essential features were missing I haven't had a crash for over a month now, and I haven't switched on my old Archimedes for at least two months. I do everything on the Iyonix.
I have never used Select, but I like the sound of some of its features. If it becomes available for the Iyonix I will almost certainly subscribe.
I long to be able to add to my email.news sig, which sayd "produced on the Iyonic, the new RISC OS computer" , the words "why are you still using Windows".
