I don't want to get into this again, but in the interests of completeness, you left out the minor detail that the licence in item 2, ("ROL operate under a license from Castle") is actually an exclusive licence for the RO desktop market. Hence there is reasonable dispute about the legal status of other desktop RO implementations.

Check out the following Drobe article for the latest (unless I missed one) public version of this dispute.
