Good news then, nice to see Castle being proactive about engaging their customers (and potential customers).

If I were them I'd advise *against* buying out ROL for a number of reasons:

(1). What ROL have can't readily be moved to RO5 - so why pay out a wodge of cash for it and then pay again to have it adapted to RO5 (2). If Castle had to continue to support existing RO products under VA it would be a waste of resources and if they *didn't* it would probably P*ss off people who bought into that "hybrid" computer nonsense. (3). How p*ssed off would Omega users be if Castle *didn't* support Omega as ROL had ? (4). All the above sounds expensive and that money and effort would be better spent on the hardware platform and the OS.

The one unified hardware and software platform is the only sensible way for Castle to go (IMHO) that means Iyonix (or its successor) and RO5.
