A great article! Thanks for doing this. Most of the new features I'd already become aware of, but there are some in there that I didn't know about. And it's nice to see some positive comment about ROL!

There's just one caveat for me... Though I'm a Select subscriber, I'm also an a9home owner. In other words, I would love to use these features on my machine, but can't. Very frustrating!

More and more I'm pinning my hopes on the emergence of an ARM-powered netbook and the success of the Cortex port currently underway over at ROOL. That would probably steer me away from my a9 for good.
