"Remember that there still hasn't been a non-beta release of the 32 bit RISC OS Adjust that all those RiscPC owners paid for. As for which is the most advanced, well, that's debatable. Most of the new features in ROL's strand are never used."

If you are trying to make out that Risc PC owners paid for the A9Home to be developed, then that is untrue. The conversion of RISC OS 4 to be 32 bit has been part of our business plan since day 1. Advantage 6 paid their own development costs for the parts of the A9Home development that were exclusive to them. If you are trying to make out that we misled people into subscribing to the Select scheme and didn't deliver anything for them, then that is also wrong. In fact most of the things you say are so wrong, that one could laugh out loud, if it wasn't such a cliche, that you yourself constantly use.

I am intrigued to know what your basis is for saying that "most of the new features in ROLs strand are never used." Have you done a survey of users to see if they use image thumbnailing. Or perhaps they don't use DHCP? How about the ability to change the network configuration without rebooting? You seem eager to use the phrase "citation needed" to justify your arguments against us, but where is the proof for your claims that most of the Select features are never used especially since you aren't a Select subscriber.
