dgs: "Surely the userbase is better off accepting that reality, and pushing forward further development of RISC OS functionality, which is what Castle are offering"

That's what people said when ROL came along. Better support this company (ROL) which is pushing forward development of RISC OS in the wake of Acorn's demise.

I bought Acorn, I bought Psion and now look where those companies are. I have this horrible fear that if I buy an Iyonix that (a) the x00s I've spent on Select are well and truly wasted and (b) Castle could end up making STBs or embedded systems with no interest in the desktop market in a couple of years.

I don't want to see my investment in RISC OS (the OS, not ROL) wasted. I don't want to buy a computer from a company that *may* in a few years have moved on to better, more profitable things.
