In Reply "Then you have the Iyonix that ROL promised an OS for. Again, not a sausage. I think that points very strongly to it not being very good, no?"

Or perhaps RISC OS land politics to be more precise.

There are nice touches in RO6 and the Select branch like the animated menu's when you open them up close to the edge of the screen, better support of image filing etc but as you say a bit lost if no one uses the added features and even more of a loss if there is no new hardware to work on but I guess ROL know this hence the emulation route they have taken.

I think ROL have done things well in a market that doesn't have great funds but I think as SA110 says they need to start thinking out of the box a littel more.
