Well, this is not the way I would have liked to see it happen but I think we now have some firm leadership around the OS. Castle's apparent offer of RO5 for 26-bit machines would seem to offer the convergence we desperately need. It's a bit of a shotgun wedding - I would have preferred the user features of Select* on top of the RO5 kernel - but at least it's a resolution.

As to the legal issues, I suspect CKH has hit it on the head. A distracted (by unrelated problems) and disinterested PACE wasn't too worried about its RO rights (and, let's face it, the royalties are a lot more significant to a player of CTL's size than PACE's). CTL though care deeply about their core business.

Here's to the RO5 route map :-/
