The biggest mistake one could make here is to start putting "talk to RISCOS Ltd" on the wishlist. That is not an operating system enhancement. Here is a chance to put forth sensible and constructive suggestions as to what to add into the OS. It would be childish in the extreme to clog up the system with political and commercial comments.

Castle are taking RISC OS forward. This further commitment to the desktop market is brilliant news.

It's time to except that the future of RISC OS lies with this company. It has the money and engineers that RISCOS Ltd doesn't and to boot it has infinitely superior management and strategies, as has been demonstrated time and again.

I can't see why anyone holds any sort of emotional or ideological attachment to RISCOS Ltd, who have, with the exception of releasing RISC OS 4, been mostly useless. RISC OS's glory days were when Acorn was developing the OS and the hardware together, which is precisely what you have now with Castle. With RISCOS Ltd, we ended up with some 56Mhz machines and a RiscPC with faster RAM (Kinetic). With Castle in control, you now have the option of buying a 600MHz XScale machine. It's a no brainer!!


Agreed. Software development is key. But with Castle talking of further support of ARM cores and this open dedication to the desktop market, it seems a pretty stable commercial environment in which to release software.
