I just hope this disagreement gets sorted out. I've nothing against ROL/VA wishing to make some money out of RISC OS, but they need to accept and appreciate that the ROOL initiative has re-energised the market in a way that neither ROL nor Castle for that matter were able to do on their own; the last thing we need is for this new energy to be frustrated, or dissipated in a futile argument. The desktop IPR issue is clearly not amenable to a zero-sum, winner-takes-all solution, otherwise it would have been settled one way or the other 4 years ago. A 'live and let live' attitude therefore is the only helpful one.
