Besides....

I think it was said ROL has not paid all it's back license fees to castle.

If that is the case then it may be as well if they don't start causing problems.

They may make a current income stream but how long will that exist if we have Iyonix running ROS 5, Beagle Board running ROS 5, Netbooks with ROS 5, emulator with ROS 5. If we have a stable RPC/A7000 build of ROS 5 why would people stick with diffrent versions? (ok so I know some may for certain software or summint) but if we have new fast hardware all on same OS would it not make sense to have older hardware on Same OS as well (would be nice for software developers).

If that happens I am willing to bet unless ROL do somthing before it happens all their income streams will be seriously reduced if not gone. Hence my point they need to either position themselfs to get RISC OS 6 onto portable hardware/new hardware. Or make Select features sit on top of ROS 5 and quick....
